Golden Globes 2018: Red Carpet Couples
Award shows, at their core, are all about support—support for excellence in entertainment and the talented people that make it happen. And on the red carpet, we get to witness how our favorite celebrity couples lift each other up. Even the most private of pairs tend to open up about their relationships, frequently citing their partners' love as their inspiration.
The 2018 Golden Globe Awards, however, was about a different type of support. Dressed in black, couples walked the carpet to support not just each other, but also the Time's Up movement, an effort to address sexual assault, harassment, and inequality in the workplace. The group, which was spearheaded by more than 300 women in Hollywood, created a legal defense fund to assist victims of sexual assault. Since its launch on January 1, the fund has raised more than $15 million. (To donate and learn more, go to www.timesupnow.com.)
While the Globes blackout was born out of Hollywood's dark history, the overwhelming response from actors and actresses was incredibly hopeful—and it ran so much deeper than their wardrobe choices.
Hand in hand, standing together in solidarity, these duos heralded in a new age in entertainment, one grounded in love and respect. Click through for a roundup of the most powerful celebrity couple moments from the 75th Golden Globe Awards' red carpet.
Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman
The Big Little Lies star and country music artist are red carpet veterans, but they always seem to make their award show date nights fun and romantic.
Sterling K. Brown and Ryan Michelle Bathe
As in sync as ever, Brown and Bathe sported coordinating black suits. The This Is Us actor went for a velvet number, while his wife (and This Is Us costar!) went for a satin-lined interpretation.
Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel
Both Timberlake and Biel hit the red carpet sporting Time's Up pins—the accessory of the night. Before arriving at the award show, the "Filthy" singer shared a selfie of him and his wife on Instagram, where he complimented his Golden Globe-nominated wife. "Here we come!" he wrote. "My wife is hot! #TIMESUP #whywewearblack"
Justin Hartley and Chrishell Stause
Justin Hartley of This Is Us wore black alongside his wife, Chrishell Stause. The two tied the knot just a few months ago.
