"Call me," Nicole Kidman said to Martin McDonagh, director of four-time Globe winner of Three Billboards of Ebbing, Missouri, after both found themselves fielding compliments left and right after the show. … A few minutes later, Big Little Lies director Jean-Marc Vallee clasped his hands and bowed to McDonagh, telling him how much he loved In Bruges. … Saoirse Ronan ping-ponged around TV interviews while barefoot. … This Is Us star Sterling K. Brown, the first black actor to win best actor in a TV drama, embraced his wife, Ryan Michelle Bathe, in the corridor outside the men's restroom. … Seconds later, they were followed down the hall by The Handmaid's Tale producers Bruce Miller and Warren Littlefield and cast, all cheering Hulu's wins for best drama series and star Elisabeth Moss, who let out a "Whoo!" as they paraded in unison. ... "I'm Sam's girlfriend," Leslie Bibb then told The Shape of Water filmmaker Guillermo Del Toro. "Your movie…I just…amazing." She was almost left speechless searching for the right words. ... Sam Rockwell then planted a kiss on Kidman's cheek, congratulating her on winning while clutching his own trophy in his other hand. He also hugged Laura Dern as well. ... Standing in the middle of the controlled chaos was Keith Urban who was approached by a media outlet to do an interview while he was waiting to which he politely declined. "I'm just the happy plus one tonight," he said. "But thank you for asking. Happy new year!"

The Swirl, Elsewhere

While leaving the Fox afterparty, del Toro, "a happy man," as he told THR, said he was hitting up In-N-Out on the way home. … Milo Ventimiglia confirmed on Jan. 8, via Instagram Stories, that he fell into the pool at HBO's Circa 55 party. With wet hair, he praised This Is Us co-star Brown: "Good time at the Globes tonight. Yes, I fell in the pool." … Best Secret Bash awards go to host Meyers, whose shindig — presented by Beats By Dre and Perrier-Jouet at the h.wood Group hotspot Poppy nightclub in West Hollywood — drew Mariah Carey, who was inseparable from boyfriend Bryan Tanaka and in high-demand with stars Matt Smith and Justin Hartley, who asked for selfies. (The DJ played her hits “Touch My Body,” “Shake It Off” and “Fantasy.") Also inside: Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen; Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel who rarely left the dance floor; Aziz Ansari, who carried around a big bag of In-N-Out all night; Sacha Baron Cohen, who chatted up the Game of Thrones cast; and Jon Hamm earned the nickname "Energizer bunny" for dancing all night long. … Meanwhile at Beverly Hills' La Dolce Vita, UTA's guests included winners Ewan McGregor and Frances McDormand, along with Lady Bird helmer Greta Gerwig (celebrating her film's win), Lorne Michaels, Timothee Chalamet, Claire Foy, Liev Schreiber and David Nevins.
