Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Jon Bon Jovi, Hugh Jackman and other Golden Globe nominees celebrated their good fortune with a cup of tea.

They were the guests of honour at the annual British Academy of Film and Television Arts annual Awards Season Tea Party at the Four Seasons Hotel in Los Angeles, where the agenda was merely to mingle with the Hollywood elite while nibbling on finger sandwiches and scones with cream.

Sally Field milled about with her awards-season date, her youngest son, Sam Greisman. Jackman and Bon Jovi talked shop. Lawrence collected kudos from her colleagues, “Life of Pi” director Ang Lee posed for photos and Harvey Weinstein, whose namesake company produced awards-season contenders such as “Silver Linings Playbook” and “Django Unchained,” smiled broadly as he worked the room.

David O. Russell, who showed up wearing his trademark white sneakers, complimented a Bafta member on his cologne.

“You smell really good,” the “Silver Linings Playbook” director said. “What are you wearing?”

Other guests at the afternoon affair included Ben Affleck, “Zero Dark Thirty” director Kathryn Bigelow, Amanda Seyfried, Jacki Weaver, Olivia Munn, “Les Miserables” director Tom Hooper, Chris Tucker, Jesse Tyler Ferguson and filmmaker Ava DuVernay.

The pre-Globes event was among many dotting the city on Saturday, and one of three held at the hotel. Tea party guests could also get glamorous at the InStyle Beauty Lounge or gifted at the HBO Luxury Lounge.

The 70th annual Golden Globe Awards will be presented Sunday at the Beverly Hilton Hotel and broadcast live on NBC.
