Beyoncé And Jay-Z Skipped The Golden Globes Red Carpet, And She Stayed Sitting During The Standing O For Joaquin Phoenix
For the first time in over ten years, the Golden Globe Awards were blessed by the Holy Spirit. Beyoncé herself deigned to show up to the awards show with her husband, Jay-Z, and they skipped that whole red carpet-thing and just went straight to the awards show… an hour late. Well at least they brought their own booze?
Beyonce was at the Golden Globes, because her song Spirit from The Lion King was nominated for Best Original Song (she and Taylor Swift lost to Elton John and Bernie Taupin who won for their song for Rocketman). Beyonce and Jay-Z must have not wanted to mingle with the peasants on the red carpet, because according to Page Six they rolled into the Beverly Hilton an hour late and weren’t quiet.
Not only did they interrupt the Carol Burnett Award honor, given by Kate McKinnon who was stroking Ellen Degeneres‘ ego like she was trying to nudge out Dubya as Ellen’s bestie–but Beyoncé showed up in butterfly-sleeves which physically parted the room around her:

But Beyonce and Jay did stand in the aisle while they waited for Kate to finish and then booked it to their seats before Ellen could dance her way up to the stage. I love that for just a moment, though, they were forced to stand there and act like regular people or be accused of being rude trash. I love it! This will never happen to them again! Make a wish or something, because you just witnessed a once in a lifetime moment.
More hilarity, Page Six says that despite the event being sponsored by Moët & Chandon, Jay-Z and Beyoncé’s bodyguard was reportedly carrying a bottle of his own brand of champagne with them, Ace of Spades:

Well that’s nice of them. If you’re going to show up late to somebody’s party at least show up with your own alcohol. Don’t want to
accidentally miss a chance at self-promotion come off as rude.
And this couple had more power moves to make. E! News says that Beyoncé noticeably chose to not stand during the standing ovation for Joaquin Phoenix after his win for best actor in Joker. Maybe she thought he’s had enough? Here’s evidence:

That self-satisfied smile–I mean, she’s Beyoncé. Why is she going to stand for a clown-ass man? Hello? Did you not listen to any of Lemonade?
