After two muted years, awards season is officially back in Hollywood, kicking off with the Golden Globes on Tuesday night.

The California rain put few off, it seems, as A-list actresses arrived at The Beverly Hilton for the 80th Golden Globe Awards ceremony.

For many, big was better and full statement gowns were the go-to choice for the evening, including Selena Gomez in Valentino and Lily James in Versace. Both Salma Hayek and Michelle Williams stepped out in Gucci, while Jessica Chastain chose a spider web design by Oscar de la Renta.

Margot Robbie has kicked off her Barbie press tour early, donning a baby pink Chanel design for the ceremony. Also in soft pink was model Molly Sims, who wore a caped gown by Lebanese designer Tony Ward.

The Golden Globes is not an event without controversy. The ceremony traditionally plays a key role in kick-starting the movie awards season, but were taken off air last year amid a media boycott concerning ethical lapses and a lack of diversity in the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

On Tuesday night, it will attempt to build back its reputation and stage a star-studded comeback, as films including Steven Spielberg's The Fabelmans, Top Gun: Maverick and Avatar sequels compete for top honours.
