Golden Globes: Julia Louis-Dreyfus Goes From Big-Screen Diva to Hot Dog-Eating TV Star (Video)
The actress, who received nominations in film and TV categories, began the show wearing sunglasses and acting aloof but ended it sheepishly waving to her small-screen friends.
Julia Louis-Dreyfus may not have taken home a Golden Globe, but she still emerged from Sunday night's show a winner.
The actress was the subject of two of the night's funniest audience cut-aways, both part of a bit with hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler oriented around Louis-Dreyfus' status as a double nominee in film and television.
At the beginning of the show, Louis-Dreyfus seemed to have turned into a Hollywood diva, sitting with her fellow movie stars. The Enough Said actress was shown wearing sunglasses inside the Beverly Hilton hotel and puffing on an e-cigarette at the Fox Searchlight table.
Her seat mate Reese Witherspoon tried to grab Louis-Dreyfus for a selfie, but she wasn't having it, waving away Witherspoon's iPhone.
"Hi, Julia, you know us from TV," Fey and Poehler said as they tried to get Louis-Dreyfus' attention, but she failed to acknowledge them.
"She has really changed," Poehler added.
However, later in the evening, Louis-Dreyfus rejoined her fellow TV stars and was shown chomping into a hot dog at her table before sheepishly waving to Fey and Poehler.
"Well, well, well, look who's slithered back over to the TV section," Fey said, as the camera cut to Louis-Dreyfus in mid-bite.
"Wow. Wow, you're a real phony, Louis-Dreyfus," Poehler added.
