In 2007, Brad Pitt was nominated for his supporting role in “Babel.” He didn’t win that prize but he and then-girlfriend Angelina Jolie won the day with a coordinated look on the Golden Globes red carpet that was all about classic Hollywood glamour. The couple married seven years later and split in 2016.

Jon Hamm and Jennifer Westfeldt even made rain look like it was a planned accessory in 2010. That year at the 67th Annual Golden Globes, the “Mad Men” star lost out to “Dexter” star Michael C. Hall for an acting prize but neither that, nor a rare wet Los Angeles night, could dampen this dazzling couple’s spirits. Jon and Jennifer split five years later.

There were no horses in the awards race for either Zac Efron or Vanessa Hudgens in 2009, but these two former “High School Musical” sweethearts did Young Hollywood proud that year. They split up in 2010.

License to thrill? At the 70th Annual Golden Globes in 2013, Daniel Craig looked quite Bond-ish and Rachel Weisz looked dangerously gorgeous as the husband-and-wife duo effortlessly worked the red carpet. Rachel lost out to Jessica Chastain in the best actress category that year but when you look this good, who needs a trophy? They’re still going strong and welcomed a daughter in 2018.

While they had already been dating for a year at the time, this picture from the HBO party at the 62nd Annual Golden Globes was one of the first looks fans got at now-longterm couple Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi together. They married in 2008.

The closest this couple got to an award was when Megan Fox introduced “The Tourist” during the telecast, but at the 2011 Golden Globes, she and husband Brian Austin Green still made an impression when they unleashed the male and female versions of the “Blue Steel” modeling gaze to devastating effect on the red carpet. The two announced their split in 2020 after 15 years together.

Elton John attended the 77th Annual Golden Globe Awards with his loving husband, David Furnish, whom he’s been with since 1993. The legendary musician took home a best original song trophy for “(I’m Gonna) Love Me Again” from “Rocketman,” the movie about his life.

Rita Wilson and Tom Hanks are a prime example of a long-lasting Hollywood marriage — they’re been married for over 30 years! The sweet couple attended the 77th Annual Golden Globe Awards together, as Tom was nominated for best supporting actor for his work in “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood” and also received the Cecil B. DeMille Award that year… which is probably why Rita is looking at him so adoringly!

Let’s do our best to forget that “Kiss From a Rose” singer Seal and model Heidi Klum eventually split. At the 2006 Golden Globes, there was no denying their love.

Johnny Depp, who was nominated for his work in “Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl” that year, set aside his penchant for scarves and necklaces for a simpler, more classic look at the 2004 Golden Globe Awards. And the actor’s longtime girlfriend and mother of his children, French singer-actress Vanessa Paradis, simply could not have looked more stunning. The couple eventually called it quits eight years later in 2012.

Salma Hayek might have lost out to Nicole Kidman for best actress at the 2003 Golden Globes, but there was no mistaking who won on the red carpet. When you can actually out-red a red carpet, as well as accessorize with Edward Norton, there is no need for some paltry trophy. Too bad they split later that year.

Julia Roberts arrived with some seriously good-looking and good luck arm candy in 2001. The movie star attended with boyfriend Benjamin Bratt, whom she dated for about four years — and that night took home a Globe for best actress for her work in “Erin Brockovich.”

It was a good night for the unrepentantly dashing George Clooney who took home a 2012 Golden Globe for his performance in “The Descendants.” But even without the accolade, the actor was a winner with former professional wrestler Stacy Keibler on his arm. The couple split the following year. But don’t feel sorry for George…

In 2015, George Clooney brought wife Amal Clooney (née Alamuddin) to the Golden Globes. The human rights attorney made headlines for her bold sartorial choice and for finally taking renowned bachelor George off the market.

At the decidedly damp 57th installment of the Golden Globe Awards in 2000, “Notting Hill” star Hugh Grant arrived with the evening’s most brilliant ray of yellow sunshine, Elizabeth Hurley. While not built to last, this was one couple that knew how to work an umbrella as well as a serious British pout.

Look at these cuties! Emily Blunt and John Krasinski attended their first Golden Globes (of many) together back in 2010. They married later that year and have been a staple at the ceremony ever since!

This is a perfect example of a woman looking so good that she could have arrived with a broomstick and the duo would have still qualified as a gorgeous couple. But in 2002, it was then-husband Eric Benet that Halle Berry opted to bring along on Globes night.

Though they’d been married for nearly 19 years at the time, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas still looked like newlyweds on the 2019 Golden Globes red carpet.

Unfortunately, 2016 would be Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan’s last Golden Globes together. The duo, who met on the set of their film “Step Up,” called it quits in 2018 after almost nine years of marriage.

Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds are one of Hollywood’s hottest power couples. And it’s obvious why — just check them out at the 2017 Golden Globes! The duo, who wed in 2012, are now parents to three daughters.

We love this next TV couple! Longtime loves Lauren Graham and Peter Krause attended the 77th Annual Golden Globe Awards together in style. They originally met back in 1995 when they appeared on the show “Caroline in the City,” but it wasn’t until they started co-starring on “Parenthood” together in 2010 that they took their friendship to the next level.

These two prove that you don’t need rings to stay committed! Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn, seen here at the 2017 Golden Globes, have been attending the Globes together since they first started dating in the early ’80s!

Just check out the way Justin Timberlake looked at wife Jessica Biel then! The couple’s love was on full display at the 2018 Golden Globes, nearly six years after they tied the knot. That year, Jessica was up for best actress in a miniseries or television film for her work on “The Sinner.”
