3:05 p.m.

Standing on the red carpet just a few hours before the Golden Globe Awards begin Sunday, “Eighth Grade” star and best actress nominee Elsie Fisher says that she’s still in shock that she was nominated.

The 15-year-old actress is a first-time nominee is sporting a red velvet suit by Kenzo. She says, “It’s so comfortable but it looks great,” which she laughed were her two requirements.

Fisher says she’d love to meet Lady Gaga at the awards Sunday, but that afterward she has some math homework to look forward to.

“Eighth Grade” writer-director Bo Burnham, standing beside his star, assured her that “no one here is good at math. You’re in good company.”

2:25 p.m.

The red carpet is a flurry of activity as everyone prepares for the deluge of stars, and, thankfully not rain, at the 76th Golden Globe Awards Sunday.

With temperatures a little chilly and the red carpet still a little soggy from the rains the night before, the crowd is a little more bundled up than usual, especially in the fan bleachers where many are wrapped in coats, scarves and hats.

How the weather might affect Sunday’s fashions is yet to be seen, but one thing is certain: There will be no coordinated fashion statements like last year’s black dresses in support of #MeToo and Time’s Up. There may, however be some celebrities sporting ribbons in support of safe, fair and dignified workplaces on behalf of Time’s Up equality efforts.
