Golden Globes Couples: From PDA to Drama, Who Stole the Show this Awards Season?

Hollywood couples take center stage during this year’s awards season, adding a romantic touch to the otherwise lackluster Golden Globes. Throughout the history of awards shows, celebrity pairings have become an integral part of the spectacle. As the camera pans across the audience, we catch glimpses of these power couples, sparking our intrigue and admiration. Here, we rank the nominees (in terms of how much we’d like to see more public displays of affection) as they embark on their journey through the season of accolades.

Leading the pack are two figures notorious for stirring up controversy – a guarantee of captivating live-television moments. However, their on-screen chemistry can’t help but remind us of the infamous “Is that allowed?” vine that circulated online.

Emma Stone and Dave McCary, who have been together since 2017 and tied the knot in 2020, have managed to keep a relatively low profile in past awards seasons. But Stone’s endearing expression of gratitude to McCary during her acceptance speech at the Globes – “I love you very much, thank you for everything” – has drawn attention to their relationship.

There seems to be a particular fondness for one couple, as evidenced by the numerous cutaways of them cuddling during the Golden Globes. While the reason behind the camera’s fixation on them remains unknown, their enjoyment of the event was palpable.

Another trio, whom we suspect may not share the same level of affections as the other couples, is sure to make tabloid headlines in the coming months. The Palme d’Or-winning director and her husband, who co-wrote a marriage murder mystery during the pandemic, have navigated the awards season together, capturing the public’s fascination.

Paul Giamatti’s partnership with longtime collaborator Alexander Payne in “The Holdovers” strikes the perfect balance between the grumpy onscreen persona and the off-screen joker. His genuine affection for Maggie Wong, whom he met while working on “Billions,” adds an extra layer of charm to this cinematic partnership.

Greta Gerwig’s exceptional exuberance combined with Noah Baumbach’s enigmatic personality make them one of the most captivating and puzzling celebrity filmmaker duos. After twelve years together, the couple finally exchanged vows in December, solidifying their awards season run as the perfect honeymoon.

Christopher Nolan’s wife, Emma Thomas, has produced all of his films, leading some to speculate about the director’s recurring theme of losing wives in his movies. This connection between his films and his real-life fears adds an intriguing layer to their relationship.

Cillian Murphy, commonly adored by fans since his role in “Red Eye,” received a charming surprise during his awards speech – a lipstick mark from his wife, Yvonne, on his nose. This endearing moment enhanced his status as an Internet Boyfriend.

Meryl Streep and Martin Short’s collaboration as on-screen lovers in the third season of “Only Murders in the Building” has garnered attention for its nuanced mix of comedy and mystery. Their on-screen chemistry combined with Streep’s recent separation and rumors circulating on Deux Moi have fans speculating about their off-screen relationship status.

As we enter the exciting awards season, we eagerly anticipate more glimpses into the lives of these captivating couples. From their red carpet appearances to their heartfelt speeches, these Hollywood power duos will continue to captivate and entertain us.
