Golden Globes red-carpet highlights: Matt Bomer, Benedict Cumberbatch, Lena Dunham, and more

There are many stars in attendance at the Golden Globes red-carpet pre-show, but a personal favorite for us is always Matt Bomer. He was one of the first notable TV stars to appear during the E! broadcast, even if he only had a few moments to discuss getting to be a part of “The Normal Heart,” a project that he has cared about ever since he was young.

By and large, this entire show treated the best and brightest in TV without a whole lot of love; even Benedict Cumberbatch, who is actually nominated for “The Imitation Game” but well-known for “Sherlock,” only had a few seconds of conversation with Ryan Seacrest before being ushered away.

Some of the few TV stars to get a decent amount of attention including Lena Dunham (who walked with her “Girls” co-star Andrew Rannells), show hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, and then “The Affair” star Joshua Jackson. This was one of the more frustrating parts of the entire evening, mostly because he and Diane Kruger were forced to discuss what makes their relationship so strong and why they’ve lasted for so many years. Can there be a more tiresome question?

We do wish that the TV stars received more attention, but despite the rise in quality for TV and the decline in movies as the great institution they once were, people like George Clooney still reign supreme. Heck, there was so much conversation about the man even when he and wife Amal were not even present.
