Photos: What Celebs Ate At The Golden Globes

Awards season officially kicked off last night with the Golden Globes, and while one might assume that all those gorgeous women in slinky dresses are fasting, there is indeed a dinner involved. In fact, it's one of the few awards shows where the dinner is served at the event. Which is probably a good thing, to prevent the stars from getting too tipsy and doing something embarrassing on stage.

So what is it that the A-Listers eat on the big night? Contrary to what Julia Louis Dreyfus might make you believe, it's not just hot dogs. The meal starts off with an appetizer trio of grilled eggplant with sundried tomato and pine nut hummus on seared tomato; mini sweet pepper with feta cheese, pomegranate, herbs and California olive oil on grilled pita; and grilled artichoke on multigrain tabbouleh and tahini.

And for the entree, they got to enjoy a fancy pants surf and turf combo of either a Mediterranean spice-crusted braised beef short rib or sauteed smoked filet of Atlantic sea trout with spinach sweet corn ragout and light cream of tomato dill sauce. And after dinner comes a mango dessert on almond sponge cake with creme anglaise.

Chef Suki Sugiura and a staff of over 200 sous chefs oversaw the dinner at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, which was accompanied by plenty of Moet & Chandon champers. There was also a signature cocktail called the Golden Night made with champagne, pear brandy and cardamom-flavored simple syrup. Sounds dangerously delicious.
