While this year’s Golden Globes brought us some very poignant acceptance speeches (shout out to the OG Meryl!) and a memorable ad-libbed opening monologue from Jimmy Fallon, not all the action happened during the awards ceremony — at least, that’s the conclusion we came to after scrolling through our Instagram feeds.

From prepping for the big night with glam squads and taking car selfies en route to engaging in red carpet shenanigans and partying on down after the show, what happened behind-the-scenes might have been just as much fun if not more so than the actual ceremony itself. Not convinced? We’ve rounded up the best celebrity Instagrams of the night, from start to finish, for your viewing pleasure.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus prepped for the long night ahead by packing snacks and some travel-sized tequila and scotch.
