Golden Globes gossip

Hot shots: Golden Globes glamour Kiefer Sutherland almost missed out on all the Golden Globes action on Monday night ? the star of 24 was without a ticket or a limo pass right up until the last minute. Apparently the same strict rules apply for everyone ? even if you're Kiefer ? no ticket, no entry. Luckily, the organisers managed to rush a ticket to him just in time for the big event. Meanwhile, Prince wasn't so fortunate. The veteran musician won the Best Original Song in a Motion Picture category, but he arrived too late to accept his award. Poor old Prince was stuck in traffic when his name was announced, so presenter Justin Timberlake saw his chance to take a stab at the 155cm singer and crouched down low to accept the award on his behalf. But Justin was just getting his own back for Prince's harsh comment at last year's Emmy Awards afterparty: "For whoever is claiming that they are bringing sexy back, sexy never left!" Kyra Sedgwick was kicking herself for leaving her acceptance speech at home on Globes night. The actress had taken the same dog-eared sheet of paper to her last three awards shows ? leaving empty-handed every time, but after she forgot the speech last night she finally got lucky and picked up an award for Best Actress in a TV Drama. It seems Helen Mirren's star power easily eclipses Sean "Diddy" Combs when it comes to hanging out at LA's exclusive hotspots. When Diddy tried to wander into a Golden Globes afterparty at the Sunset Tower Hotel, he was met with resistance by uniformed security guards who were impervious to his repeated cries of, "Do you know who I am?" However, five minutes later 61-year-old Helen, who had won two awards earlier that evening, was greeted by security guards and ushered straight past Diddy. Keith Urban ? who has just been released from rehab ? didn't attend the Globes, but was spotted at the private CAA afterparty with wife Nicole Kidman. Keith checked into rehab on October 19 last year seeking treatment for alcohol addiction. After spending almost three months at the treatment facility, with a brief period of "leave" over the holidays, it looks like Keith's finally back for good. He plans to launch his Love, Pain and the Whole Crazy World Tour in April. See the magazine for more Golden Globes gossip and loads of hot pics! On sale Monday, January 22.
