BEVERLY HILLS, CALIF. (AP) - Show Bits brings you the 70th annual Golden Globes awards through the eyes of Associated Press journalists. Follow them on Twitter where available with the handles listed after each item.
There was big-name celebrity heat on the Golden Globes red carpet. That was about the only heat to be found anywhere in Beverly Hills, however.
On a sunny afternoon, when temps dipped unusually low into the 50s, goose bumps popped on the sinewy arms of actresses like Debra Messing, Connie Britton, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Sally Field.
“No, I’m not wearing any leggings or long underwear,” a smiling Louis-Dreyfus said, patting her strapless gown’s layers of tulle, silk and lace.
Asked how she was coping with the chill, Messing replied, “Not well.”
Britton didn’t mind as much.
“I don’t think it’s that bad out here,” she said. “Maybe it’s the adrenaline or something. It’s fun to wear a strapless dress to an awards ceremony, so sometimes you got to suck it up.”

Gowns with long trains are glamorous but can pose a serious traffic hazard. Just ask the guy behind Jennifer Lopez.
When Lopez strolled into the Golden Globes show pulling an impressive amount of fabric, the man behind her had to do a quick bunny hop.
His quick thinking and fast maneuvering avoided not only a possible derailment but also what could have been an embarrassing wardrobe malfunction.
