Starz Kicks Off Golden Globes Weekend with Glamorous Bash Celebrating ‘Outlander,’ ‘Blunt Talk’ Noms

The stars of Starz were out in full force on Friday night, descending on West Hollywood’s Chateau Marmont to celebrate the premium cabler’s six Golden Globe nominations at a lively bash that counted Patrick Stewart, Steven Soderbergh, Mark Wahlberg and Sam Raimi among its attendees.

Stewart, nominated for his lead role in comedy series “Blunt Talk,” was in high spirits as he fielded a steady stream of well-wishers throughout the evening. Fellow nominees Caitriona Balfe (lead actress in drama series “Outlander”) and Sarah Hay (lead actress in limited series “Flesh and Bone”) were also in attendance, along with “Outlander” showrunner Ron Moore, author Diana Gabaldon and co-stars Sam Heughan and Lotte Verbeek, and “Flesh and Bone” boss Moira Walley-Beckett, exec producers Lawrence Bender, Kevin Brown and John Melfi, and cast members John Allee and Raychel Diane Weiner. “Outlander” scored a nomination in the competitive Best Television Series – Drama field, while “Flesh and Bone” is up for Best Limited Series at Sunday’s ceremony.

Other luminaries on hand for the soiree included “American Gods” boss Bryan Fuller; “Power” showrunner Courtney Kemp Agboh; “The Girlfriend Experience” star Riley Keough, and cast members from the cabler’s “Ash vs. Evil Dead,” “Black Sails” and “Survivor’s Remorse.”

Gabaldon was admittedly pleased by “Outlander’s” three nominations (star Tobias Menzies also earned a supporting actor nod), but told Variety that allowing the show to reach a wider audience was far more valuable than awards recognition. “It’s obviously great to get this stuff, but it’s more a means to an end than an end in itself,” she said. “Having been in this entertainment business, so to speak, for as long as I have, there are people who go into it because their goal is to be rich and famous, and for them, the product is a means to that. For me and the people in the show, it’s the other way around; we do what we do because we love it, and it’s great when the recognition comes along, but it’s great because that recognition raises your visibility and causes people to partake of what it is that you do.”
