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.”

Golden Globe nominees Steve Buscemi and Louis C.K. shared some love inside the Beverly Hilton Hotel International Ballroom as they waited to find out whether they’d go home winners or losers.
“Thanks, it was fun,” the comedian said sheepishly after the star of “Boardwalk Empire” complimented him on his Globe-nominated performance in “Louie.”
Buscemi was nominated for best actor in a TV drama, while C.K. was up for best actor in a TV musical or comedy.
Elsewhere in the ballroom, Kathryn Bigelow and Jodie Foster made a beeline for each other, navigating around several star-filled dinner tables to exchange greetings and a hug.
