One of the most surprising moments from Sunday night's Golden Globes was when Taylor Swift made an appearance on stage to present Best Original Song to Lady Gaga. It was the first formal awards show Swift had attended in months—and she followed it with a night out where she reportedly chilled with her boyfriend, Joe Alwyn, and friend Emma Stone. Unfortunately, we don't have photos of that, but we do have a rough timeline of Swift's evening. So let's dive right in, shall we?
First, Swift unexpectedly hits the Globes stage with Idris Elba. (They're starring in Cats together.) Twitter promptly erupted. The best part about this was that TayTay literally said the words "Shallow" and "A Star Is Born," which clearly means she and Gaga are collaborating, right? Right?! The two pop icons shared a hug as they walked off stage together, further fueling fans' desire for a duet. This tweet, below, accurately sums up what every gay person in America hoped Swift said to Gaga in this moment (though their actual exchange remains a mystery).
Alwyn was in the audience when Swift gave out this award. “While Taylor presented, Joe watched the teleprompter near him and smiled and [his The Favourite costar] Nicholas Hoult patted him on the back,” a source told Us Weekly. “She was smiling at him while she walked off the stage. She looked over her shoulder and gave a sassy, cute little smile at his table’s direction.”
Then, fans started speculating about Swift's outfit. She wore a black Versace gown that gave fans serious mermaid vibes. For the uninitiated, Swift fans are convinced her next album is either nautical-themed or about mermaids, so this dress…amplified that theory. Each of her earrings also had seven diamonds, and guess which album Swift is reportedly working on? Her seventh. Connections!
Party-hopping soon commenced. Swift and Alwyn attended nearly all the post-Golden Globes bashes in Los Angeles together. First off was the InStyle party, where Swift posed on the red carpet. "They didn’t shy away from showing PDA. They were adorable and you couldn’t help but to smile watching them," a source told Us Weekly about Alwyn and Swift at this specific party.
The couple also stopped by parties hosted by Netflix and Fox. It was at the latter where they reportedly hung out with Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz, as well as Swift's good friend Emma Stone. According to this eyewitness source, below, Swift and Alwyn kissed at the Fox party:
Los Angeles Times reporter Amy Kaufman says Swift was escorted by security guards at the Fox party to a back booth, where she hung out in privacy with Alwyn, Stone, and the rest of her circle.
"She walked over enthusiastically and leaned her hand on his shoulder," a source told Us Weekly about Swift's entrance into the Fox party. "He grabbed her hand and kissed her. It was obvious they were aware they were being watched, but they didn’t seem to mind. … Taylor seemed absolutely in awe of him, totally mesmerized."
Swift and Alwyn's lack of public moments together last night shouldn't come as a surprise. Save for a few lyrics on Swift's 2017 album Reputation that may or may not be about Alwyn, she's kept quite mum about the relationship. If these tidbits are any indication, though, it appears she's very happy with the British actor. I'm really tempted to make a "King of My Heart" joke here, but I'll resist. Instead, just go stream the song! It's the best one on Reputation.
Anyway! Cheers to (hopefully) more Swift and Alwyn moments as awards season continues.
