Lindsay Lohan as far as we know wasn’t at the 2012  Golden Globe Awards and didn’t win an award or even get nominated for one but that didn’t stop her from  attending  The Weinstein Company’s 2012 Golden Globe Awards After Party which was held at Club 210 in Beverly Hills in LA last night. Lohan wouldn’t miss that for the world as Weinstein is the current big name in Hollywood. We assume she was invited? Either way it’s got to be said she did steal the show with regard to the arrivals photos!

Ex Bond Girl Olga Kurylenko was also at this event with other prominent names including Michelle Williams Golden Globe Winner, Elizabeth McGovern,  Jean Dujardin also a Golden Globe Winner, Paris Hilton, Nicky Hilton and mum and dad Rick and  Kathy Hilton, Kim Kardashian, Meryl Streep, Sofia Milos (more…)

Sofia Vergara is particularly worth a listen if you are into latin accents. She’s the one for that!

All videos are red carpet high speed interviews of a couple of minutes trying to find out the latest news and views from the stars concerned, not easy in that short a time frame but in the hands of the pro’s here, it looks easy, all about getting quick rapport and obviously asking the right questions and not the wrong ones.
