Meryl Streep, Amy Poehler, Laura Dern bring activists as dates to Globes

Mariah Carey and Bryan Tanaka cozied up on the red carpet at a Golden Globe Awards after-party.

The songstress started her tweets by supporting the TimesUp movement and in solidarity wore a black dress too. "I am such a fan!" said Clarkson upon meeting the actor.

In a statement Sunday, the advocates say they were inspired by the Time's Up initiative, which launched Monday with the backing of hundreds of Hollywood women, like Streep, Reese Witherspoon and Shonda Rhimes.

Williams, who is up against Streep for her role in "All the Money in the World", will be joined by Tarana Burke, the founder of the #MeToo movement and the senior director of the nonprofit Girls for Gender Equity.

In another "amazing moment" that we would have loved to see, Kelly finally got to meet "The 40-Year-Old Virgin" star Steve Carell, who actually approached her. Cut to next commercial break, guess who comes back to her seat.(sic). "She followed it up with: "(me) Dear Meryl, please forgive me! "Other than the fact that she's an incredible actor, she's also an fantastic singer".

For Mariah Carey, who performed the Golden Globe-nominated song "The Star" from the film of the same name, this meant taking a seat next to Steven Spielberg.

She concluded the story by writing to Streep, "You can take my seat any time!"

While award show red carpets used to be filled with answers to the question, "Who are you wearing?" this year, actresses largely used their time at the microphone to advance their causes.

The singer was live-tweeting the Golden Globes from the event venue in Beverly Hills, California. "We all saw the legendary Glitter", one of her 20 million followers wrote.
