It’s nice to see the Golden Globes go on despite what’s going on in the world, but I have to be honest here: most of it being a giant Zoom meeting didn't necessarily make the hours go by quicker. Still, there was a certain charm about seeing our favorite actors at home (or fancy hotels?) with their families. More importantly, the Globes put some of their pets into the spotlight and it was distracting in the best way. I’m already drifting off thinking about Watchmen’s Regina King and her pup.

Before the telecast had even begun, Regina King gave a pre-show interview where her dog could be seen plopping on its bed, as to say ‘goodnight, I’ll check all the winners in the morning.’ Check it out:

The One Night In Miami nominee was displaying her beautiful gown, but we certainly got something special tonight beyond the usual red carpet shenanigans. Pets became a running perk of the night, with Sarah Paulson’s dog also making an appearance halfway through the show. Take a look:

During the Best Actress in a Drama Series grouping, pets became a point of conversation among the women, as Sarah Paulson and Olivia Colman could be heard asking Emma Corrin (who won for her role as Princess Diana in The Crown) to bring her kitty out. And then it happened:

The best part about being on Zoom all the time has been the rare animal sightings, so were we really surprised to see so many during the show? The very best doggo of the entire night was definitely Jodie Foster’s canine couch mate, who was lovingly at her side for her fourth Golden Globe win. Foster nabbed Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture for The Mauritanian. Check it:

Jodie Foster accepted the award on her couch next to her wife, Alexandra Hedison, who was cozied up with the Silence of the Lambs actress in sleek pajamas. It became an immediate highlight of the night that had many ogling over Foster and her little family. As one Twitter user said:

And of course there were many more that were likely sitting next to the talent who won tonight that we're off camera. Such as Dan Levy’s pup, who made it into the glamour shot of actor and Schitt’s Creek creator, who also had a big night when the hit show won Best Comedy series. Check them out:

Can we all agree that the Golden Globe pets were the best part of the show? Next year they should bring them along!
