Tea Time

| February 22, 2012 | Parties National

THE PARTY Golden Globe noms and industry heavy hitters gathered in the ballroom of the Four Seasons Beverly Hills for an elegant afternoon of hot tea and chilled Champagne, sponsored by Audi. THE PLAYERS Viola Davis, Michelle Williams, Meryl Streep, Leonardo DiCaprio, Octavia Spencer, Glenn Close, Jean Dujardin, Charlize Theron, Evan Rachel Wood, Chris Hemsworth, Felicity Jones, Idris Elba, ChloĆ« Grace Moretz, Sir Ben Kingsley THE HIGHLIGHTS From all four best actress nominees to multiple members of the Modern Family cast (including pint-size Lily), partygoers rubbed shoulders with Golden Globe favorites at every turn as they nibbled on finger sandwiches and scones with jam and cream. Hollywood heartthrobs DiCaprio and Hemsworth set more than a few hearts aflutter in the room and politely posed with fans for photos. Meanwhile, Streep barely made it past the entrance due to the constant barrage of well-wishers—including her former co-star DiCaprio, whom the Iron Lady warmly embraced. THE ONE-LINER “Best of British luck!” said Neil Stiles, BAFTA L.A. chairman, addressing the room of hopeful noms. Photos courtesy of Todd Williamson.
