Ah, the Golden Globes. When the broadcast is over and the dust has settled, media savvy fans like myself are always left wishing that they had been in Hollywood that night — and, you know, merited an invitation to the ceremony and to the 2016 Golden Globe after parties to follow. However, since most of us are not so lucky, we rely on many different sources to give us an insider peek on what happened to our favorite celebrities when the cameras weren't on them. Before the ceremony, during the ceremony, or after the ceremony, celebrities around the room were being hilarious, being relatable, or being supportive, and there's photographic of all of that to be found, whether from the hands of professional photographers, from the wonderland of Twitter, or from the Instagrams of the celebrities themselves. These behind the scenes 2016 Golden Globes photos will almost make you feel like you were there, or give you some serious FOMO. Or both.
From Quentin Tarantino to Katy Perry, from Rachel Bloom to Taylor Schilling, everyone was showing off their best or silliest faces even if they weren't explicitly being shown during the broadcast. We got to see how the stars prepared for the glamorous night. We got to see how the stars supported one another during the many wins and pitfalls of the night. And we got to see how the stars celebrated after the alcohol had started flowing freely. Basically, FOMO abounds, so look through these pictures with caution.

And reminds me in this instant that I have yet to eat breakfast.

This is just one of many ways in which Rodriguez and I are the same person, because my dad is also my best friend. (Sorry, Lauren.)

The world collectively had a good time poking fun at Lady Gaga for forgetting to thank her fiancé in her acceptance speech, but she made up for that moment by making sure to thank Taylor Kinney in this beautiful black-and-white Instagram photo.
7. Four Of Your Favorite Women Get Together
