The week of December 8th, 2014, brought a couple of celebrity events that are only the beginning to sparkling tradition, timeless cultural entertainment and endless enjoyment.
Once again, the very best entertainers of 2014 were recognized for their tremendous talent by receiving the Golden Globe nominations. The 72nd annual Golden Globe Awards are going to be coming to the world live on January 11, 2015 from Beverly Hills, California where the winners will become known and the event will be hosted by the very funny duo of Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, SNL alumnis. The nominations were announced at the crack of dawn on the morning of December 11, 2014 in Los Angeles as the presenters took to the stage. HPFA President, Theo Kingma, introduced the presenters, one of who was Peter Krause, a two-time Golden Globe Award-nominee himself, and who was extremely excited to announce the first category which led into well-deserved others. Also having the honor of announcing additional nominees was Kate Beckinsale and Paula Patton, along with Golden Globe-winner and five-time nominee, Jeremy Piven. The group joined Moët for a toast with beautiful Golden Goblets to kick off the celebration at the sky-high tower of Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage 2004 and Rose Imperial Magnums – which will be poured on the tables during the 72nd annual awards ceremony. Miss Golden Globes 2015, Greer Grammer, joined the presenters and wowed the room in a stunning red dress. Her father is the well-known actor, Kelsey Grammer.
Now the countdown begins to the most highly anticipated awards of the new year, the Golden Globe Awards. Moët & Chandon, the champagne of success, glitz and glamour since 1743, has been the official champagne of the Golden Globe Awards for 24 consecutive years. All the nominees can be seen at the following link: http://www.goldenglobes.com/2015_72nd_Golden_Globes_Nominees. Pick the winners for yourself and then compare to the real winners in January 2015.
At the January 2015 event, Moët & Chandon will grace the star-studded red carpet and decorate the tables in the venue with its family of champagnes, serving 1,500 Moët Impérial minis on the red carpet; 400 magnums of Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage 2004 and Moët Impérial Rosé on the tables during the awards ceremony along with 500 Moët cocktails served at the bars. The King of Champagnes will also return to the red carpet with its popular philanthropic initiative, “Toast for a Cause.” Golden Globe nominees will be invited to raise a toast with Moët & Chandon Impérial minis in support of their favorite charities on the red carpet. For each toast raised, this generous sponsor will donate $1,000 to the chosen charity in the nominees’ names.
Another arousing event that also took place last week but a few days earlier ,on December 9th, was the first-ever Diner en Blanc Miami at the New World Symphony’s Soundscape Park. Although this is somewhat of an annual tradition, the 26 year old pop-up dinner party made its official Miami debut, with 1200 guests clad in white, including the lovely actress, Gabrielle Union. Union and her friends sipped on champagne and participated in the trademark sparkler moment, known for commencing Diner en Blanc. The party continued with Moët until 11pm when the guests began to depart after a totally enchanting evening.
These two events will lead up to many memorable moments set to kick off a new year of promise and optimism, 2015.
