Taraji P. Henson is channeling her “Empire” character after winning the Golden Globe Award for best actress in a television drama.

Henson walked to the stage passing out cookies, a reference to her popular character, Cookie Lyon on the show.

Henson opened her speech, “Cookies for everyone tonight! My treat.”

___

7:10 p.m.

It took two hours and, finally, Sylvester Stallone’s first Golden Globes win to bring a tough audience to its feet.

After host Ricky Gervais got the awards show off to a giggly start with his opening monologue, the Beverly Hilton ballroom was mostly quiet until Stallone claimed the Globe for supporting actor for the film “Creed.”

As the stunned-looking actor made his way to the stage, the audience erupted in a loud ovation.

The adulation might have thrown Stallone off a bit. He didn’t mention his co-star, Michael B. Jordan, or director Ryan Coogler in his acceptance speech.

As the broadcast cut to a commercial he returned to the stage to make amends.

___

7:06 p.m.

Mel Gibson and Ricky Gervais are turning old jokes into new laughs.

Gervais joked about Gibson during a previous stint hosting the Golden Globes and on Sunday introduced the Oscar winner to present a clip from the film “Mad Max: Fury Road.”

Gervais noted it was an awkward situation, and blamed Globes broadcaster NBC.

That didn’t stop him from continuing to crack jokes at Gibson’s expense.

The host didn’t stop there, saying he would rather drink with Gibson than with Bill Cosby.

Gibson took the ribbing with good humor and gave it back to Gervais. He said seeing the comedian host the Globes again reminded him it was time to get a colonoscopy.

___

7 p.m.

Long after presenting one of the first Golden Globes of the night, Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill were still hanging out together.

The pair were seen scrambling through a patio, on their way back to the Beverly Hilton ballroom.

And, yes, Hill was still toting that bear hat.

On the smoking terrace, it was a Meeting of the Mikes, as Michael Fassbender and Michael B. Jordan shared an embrace and introductions to their respective friends.

At the back of the ballroom, Jeffrey Tambor was holding court, posing for photos with both reporters and pretty much anyone else who wanted one.

___

6:59 p.m.

“Mr. Robot” has won the Golden Globe Award for best television drama series.

The USA network show follows the adventures of a computer programmer-turned-hacker being recruited for a job by an anarchist.

It beat out other heavyweight shows such as “Game of Thrones,” ”Outlander” and “Empire.”

___

6:52 p.m.

Lady Gaga has won the Golden Globe Award for best actress in a limited television series or movie, fulfilling a lifelong dream.

The Grammy-winning singer won Sunday for her role on “American Horror Story: Hotel.”

An emotional Gaga told the audience at the Globes that she wanted to be an actress before she wanted to become a singer, but that her recording career worked out first.

Gaga says, “This is one of the greatest moments in my life.”

The Globe statuette will join Gaga’s other accolades, including Grammy Awards for her album “The Fame Monster,” her song “Bad Romance” and an album she recorded with Tony Bennett.

___

6:50 p.m.

Damian Lewis didn’t have to wait long for congratulations after his PBS series “Wolf Hall” was honored as best miniseries at the Golden Globes.

Jon Hamm quickly dropped by his table to offer a handshake.

Now Lewis can return the favor: Shortly after that shake, Hamm won as best drama series actor for the final season of “Mad Men.”

___

6:47 p.m.

Sylvester Stallone gave his Golden Globe supporting actor acceptance speech in two parts.

___

5:54 p.m.

The Golden Globe Awards is living up to its reputation as a free-wheeling, wise-cracking affair.

In the first hour of the show, Andy Samberg joked about Bill Cosby giving a full confession and Jonah Hill presented an award wearing a bear hat. Hill was bleeped twice for using profanity during his presentation.

Actress Jaimie Alexander’s microphone was also cut when she criticized the person running the teleprompter during an awards presentation.

___

5:49 p.m.

Sean Penn’s Rolling Stone interview with Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman had several people fascinated at the Golden Globes.

“Santa Monica High alumni get things done. We get nominated for Golden Globes, we help apprehend international drug fugitives, because that’s what we’re taught at Santa Monica High,” joked actor and Penn’s fellow Santa Monica High School alum Rob Lowe.

Wagner Moura wasn’t so sure it was a good idea for Penn to venture to the jungles of Mexico to meet with Guzman before the drug lord was captured this week.

“Isn’t that crazy?” asked Moura, who portrays drug lord Pablo Escobar on the television series “Narcos.”

___

5:37 p.m.

___

5:08 p.m.

Ricky Gervais isn’t wasting any time blasting Hollywood’s elite, taking aim at Sean Penn, NBC and Caitlyn Jenner in his Golden Globe Awards opening monologue.

Gervais’ first joke included a poke at Penn, who conducted an interview with a Mexican drug kingpin and penned an essay for Rolling Stone magazine. Gervais joked he wanted to get through his monologue and go into hiding — somewhere even Penn couldn’t find him.

He then called the actor a “snitch” — a reference to Mexican authorities’ claims that Penn’s interview helped lead them to Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman.

The comedian also joked NBC was the perfect network to broadcast the Globes since it had no nominations.

And he lauded Jenner for being a role model and breaking down barriers when she announced her transition, but then added, “She didn’t do a lot for women drivers.”

Jenner, formerly Bruce Jenner, was involved in a fatal car crash in February. She is being sued over the wreck, but prosecutors refused to pursue charges.

Sunday’s ceremony is the fourth time Gervais has hosted the boozy ceremony honoring top television shows and films.

___

4:43 p.m.

It’s more dangerous than it looks the navigating the Golden Globes red carpet.

Olivia Wilde nearly lost a limo door when she opened it in front of oncoming traffic on the two-lane driveway where celebs are being dropped off for the show Sunday evening.

That configuration kept several stars from coming over to the fan bleachers to high five or pose for as they have done in the past. Mark Ruffalo, Amy Schumer and Amy Adams were among those who made up for it by flashing peace signs, blowing kisses or waving from afar.

“Hi, guys!” Adams exclaimed as she stepped out of her ride.

Will Smith and Kevin Hart decided to take their chances and cross in front of traffic to get to the bleachers.

Laverne Cox experienced a different kind of emergency. The “Orange is the New Black” co-star required a dedicated handler for her long white train as she exited her vehicle.

___

4:23 p.m.

Ricky Gervais is playing coy about whether he’s made any last-minute revisions to his Golden Globe Awards joke roster.

Gervais wouldn’t say whether he wrote new material after Rolling Stone released a piece by actor Sean Penn in which he interviewed Mexican drug kingpin Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman.

The host of Sunday’s ceremony told Matt Lauer and Savannah Guthrie that NBC and the ceremony’s hosts haven’t put any restrictions on what he says.

Gervais, who has skewered many stars during his three previous times hosting the Golden Globes, says the show will go by fast.

And he promised Lauer and Guthrie that, “I won’t break any laws, you know.”

___

4 p.m.

This year’s heightened security is creating a mile-long traffic jam outside the site of the Golden Globes.

Each limo, SUV or other vehicle arriving for valet parking at the Beverly Hilton Hotel must stop while authorities check the contents of the trunk. Mirrors are being used to check underneath vehicles.

The new restrictions also bar guests from being dropped off by cab and walking in.

The heavy security presence around the hotel and the Globes’ red carpet includes SWAT officers, dogs and representatives of multiple police agencies, including the FBI.

___

3:30 p.m.

The limousines, sport-utility vehicles, sedans and ride-sharing services are creating a Golden Globes traffic jam.

Alan Cumming, Patrick Stewart, Michael Shannon, Bernadette Peters and the cast of Amazon’s “Transparent” were among the first celebs to arrive on a red-carpet-covered driveway Sunday afternoon.

Sam Smith was greeted by screams when he opened his passenger-side door directly in front of a bleacher populated with fans.

While most stars made a beeline to the camera crews and photographers waiting outside the Beverly Hilton, Jamie Lee Curtis stopped to wave and blow kisses to the excited crowd.

“Thank you!” she screamed.

When a fan recognized actor and screenwriter Danny Strong, the “Empire” co-creator paused to acknowledge the greeting.

“You’re the one person who knew my name,” he shouted. “I love you!”

Jason Schwartzman arrived in the most stylish ride, emerging from a vintage limo.

___

1:30 p.m.

It’s still hours to showtime, but the Golden Globes red carpet is already warming up.

With the intermittent sun beating down outside the Beverly Hilton Hotel following days of rain, “Today” show co-hosts Matt Lauer and Savannah Guthrie rehearsed for celebrity arrivals at their prime, rose-covered red carpet location. Dressed casually with shades covering their faces, the pair interviewed a stand-in wearing a pink Jennifer Lawrence sign around her neck.

With the threat of rain diminished, “Entertainment Tonight” stagehands ascended ladders on the other side of the carpet to remove tarps covering their red carpet headquarters. If there is any drizzle, a transparent tent will protect celebrities — but not the fans.

In the uncovered bleachers, a group of about 40 fans of the TV series “Outlander” gathered — a few in costume — to catch a glimpse and root for the cast and crew of the Starz series.

“We apologize in advance if we’re loud and obnoxious,” said Leona Barad told to the rest of the crowd in the bleachers.

Barad coordinated with dozens of other “Outlander” fans on Facebook for the group to sit among the audience overlooking the awards show entrance. When cameras from E! panned across the crowd, they screamed “OUTLANDER!” in unison.

As a lure for Hollywood stars, the Golden Globes Awards are nearly unmatched. But the 73rd annual show, where actors were streaming down the red carpet Sunday, may have already been upstaged by the surrealism of Sean Penn’s intrepid journalism.

There were plenty of story lines heading into the Globes in Beverly Hills, California: Can the Boston Globe drama “Spotlight” triumph as best picture? Will the nerdy science-fiction hit “The Martian” top the comedy nominees? How will Ricky Gervais do as host after a lauded three-year stint by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler?

But the revelation Saturday that Penn traveled clandestinely to Mexico to interview the drug kingpin Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman for Rolling Stone magazine was sure to be one of the night’s most buzzed-about topics. Penn was not in attendance Sunday, but surely had Gervais making last-minute changes to his opening monologue.

Early notable looks on the red carpet included “Jane the Virgin” star Gina Rodriguez in an off-the-shoulder gown. “Blindspot” star Jaimie Alexander somehow hid her own real tattoos in a green gown with a neckline that plunged all the way to the navel as the stars of film and TV arrived Sunday for the Golden Globe Awards.

Emmy Rossum wore a tight red dress and a twisting diamond necklace, Brie Larson shimmered in gold and Laverne Cox rocked a backless gown in ivory crepe with a fishtail train.

The looks were as varied as the night’s nominees. Without a runaway favorite for this year’s top Academy Award, a handful of key contenders will be looking to Sunday night’s Globes for a little traction on the road to the Oscars. Academy Award nominees will be announced Thursday.

Among the nominees with the most to gain from a best-picture win when the Globes are handed out in Beverly Hills, California, are “Mad Max: Fury Road,” ”The Revenant” and “Spotlight” in the drama category, and “The Big Short” and “The Martian” in the comedy category.

The five films are the only Globe best picture nominees in either category to also appear on the Producers Guild of America’s list of 10 best picture nominees announced this past week. There has never been an Oscar best picture winner that hasn’t also been on the PGA’s list of best picture nominees since the guild started handing out awards in 1990.

Other nominees in the Globes’ top two categories this year are the dramas “Carol” and “Room,” and “Joy,” ”Spy” and “Trainwreck” in the comedy category.

“The Revenant,” starring the best-actor favorite Leonardo DiCaprio, came in buoyed by its $37 million wide-release, good enough to almost topple J.J. Abrams’ box-office juggernaut, “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.”

That film on Wednesday became the highest-grossing movie of all time in North America. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which presents the Golden Globes, announced its nominees a few days before the first industry screening of “Star Wars” in mid-December.

The absence of “The Force Awakens” — a certain ratings booster for any awards show — will surely be one of the things Gervais needles the Hollywood Foreign Press Association about at the Beverly Hilton Hotel ceremony, which runs from 8-11 p.m. EST, telecast live on NBC.

Gervais, who will host for the fourth time after a three-year stint by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, said on the “Ellen DeGeneres Show” last week that booze gives him the courage to make his wince-inducing jokes.

“If I didn’t drink, I wouldn’t be brave enough to say some of the things I’m going to say,” Gervais said.

After a 10-year ratings high three years ago, the Golden Globes’ viewership has dipped slightly since, with an audience of 19.3 million tuning in last year.

That, though, is still very strong for the Golden Globes, which have worked to shed an image of eccentric selections made by a group of little-known international journalists. The Globes have instead grown into one of the most popular award show broadcasts of the year, thanks to increasingly credible nominees, its trademark relaxed atmosphere and its unique position as a major awards show that honors both film and television.

Netflix earned a leading eight nods on the TV side, where nominations are scattered across streaming services, broadcast and cable. Six shows come in tied for the most nominations with three: “Fargo,” ”Mr. Robot,” ”Outlander,” ”Transparent,” ”American Crime” and “Wolf Hall.”

Presenters at Sunday night’s Golden Globes will include Tom Hanks, Helen Mirren, Michael Keaton, Amy Adams, Kurt Russell, Lady Gaga, Jamie Foxx, Jennifer Lopez, Eddie Redmayne, Kate Hudson, Channing Tatum and Kate Bosworth. Also presenting will be Mel Gibson, who is returning to the Hollywood spotlight after keeping a low profile for almost a decade, following an explosive drunken-driving arrest and public custody dispute.
