Beyonce And Jay-Z Arrive At The 2020 Golden Globes Almost An Hour Late
Did Beyoncé and Jay-Z lose track of time? The power couple was noticeably missing from the red carpet at the 2020 Golden Globes held at the Beverly Hilton on January 5. It was later revealed that the couple arrived at the ceremony almost an hour late.
The songstress, 38, and rapper, 50, ultimately made it to the event when Kate McKinnon was introduced on stage to present Ellen DeGeneres with the Carol Burnett Award.
The duo stood in the aisle during Kate’s, 36, introduction and quickly took their seat before Ellen, 61, walked onstage.
Amy Kaufman from the L.A. Times tweeted, @Beyoncé and Jay-Z just walked in. They’re waiting until Kate McKinnon finishes speaking to take their seats. Is their bodyguard carrying bottles of alc for them?
Aside from getting to the event fashionably late, the Carters also brought their own champagne. An onlooker revealed that their longtime bodyguard Julius was holding two bottles of Armand de Brignac Ace of Spades Brut Gold Champagne, despite the ceremony being sponsored by rivals Moet & Chandon.to take to their table, according to Cosmopolitan. The “4:44” rapper bought the champagne company from Sovereign Brand for an undisclosed amount back in 2014, according to CNBC.
Beyoncé was in the running for the Best Original Song category for “Spirit” from the 2019 remake of The Lion King but later lost to Elton John’s “I’m Gonna Love Me Again” from Rocketman.
The “Brown Skin” singer was first nominated for a Golden Globe in 2006 for best actress in a motion picture—musical or comedy for Dreamgirls. The actress was also in the running for best original song for “Listen” from the same film. The Obsessed star was nominated for best original song for “Once in a Lifetime” from Cadillac Records two years later.
It had been over a decade since the 22-time Grammy award winner last attended the Golden Globes. Her first appearance was in 2001 when she was still a member of Destiny’s Child, and again in 2003 following the 2002 release of Austin Powers in Goldmember in which she had a supporting role. Viewers of the award show didn’t see the global superstar again until 2007 with the cast of Dreamgirls and again in 2009.
