Golden Globes: Reports from the tables

Mingling, meandering, drinking and no seat-fillers: The Golden Globes are different from the Academy Awards in that the atmosphere inside is more dinner party than awards show.

AP Entertainment Writer Sandy Cohen has a seat at a table this year. Here are just a few things that she's seeing from the rear of the Beverly Hilton ballroom, stage left -- and everywhere she roams ...

-- Leonardo DiCaprio and "Revolutionary Road" co-star Kate Winslet were engrossed in conversation as Colin Farrell chatted up best motion-picture actress winner Sally Hawkins.

-- Angelina Jolie sat with Clint Eastwood, Tom cruise had his arm around Steven Spielberg and Emma Thompson crouched at the table beside Sandra Bullock while Beyonce and Jay Z shared a laugh with a show worker.

-- Heath Ledger's supporting-actor win brought the room to it's feet -- the first standing ovation of the night.

-- TV's it girls -- America Ferrera, Christina Applegate and Kyra Sedgwick -- sat side by side, then Sally Field sidled over for a chat. Renee Zellweger was led to her seat by her publicist as Laura Dern checked her Blackberry at the table.

-- In line for the ladies' room, Anne Hathaway told a fellow partygoer, "My mom's having a great time, thanks."

-- Mickey Rourke held court on the smoking patio, collecting accolades for his performance in "The Wrestler" as he posed for photos with fans an puffed on a Marlboro red.

-- Laura Dern's husband Ben Harper shed tears as his wife won for TV supporting actress.

-- Clint Eastwood's wife, Dina, was filming with a handheld camera.

-- As Steven Spielberg came into the venue, he was congratulated by so many well-wishers that he could hardly make it to his seat. Spielberg was on hand to accept a lifetime achievement award.

-- The Jolie-Pitts were fashionably on-time: Brad Pitt led Angelina Jolie in by the hand with less than two minutes before showtime.

-- Prior to showtime, the tables were decorated with white lilies and roses and oversized bottles of champagne.
