After collecting a shiny hunk of Hollywood hardware, actor/writer/director Aziz Ansari likes to go to the In-N-Out Burger on Sunset Boulevard for a celebratory snack. He visited this location of the popular SoCal burger chain following his Emmy win back in September, and last night he hit up the Hollywood In-N-Out after scoring the Best Actor — Musical or Comedy award at the Golden Globes. Accompanying Ansari was his Master of None co-star Eric Wareheim, aka Big Bud. In his speech last night, Ansari took a moment to thank “Italy for all the amazing food we ate in Season 2.”
But Ansari wasn’t the only Golden Globes winner who got a hankering for a Double-Double last night. Shortly after picking up a Best Director statuette for The Shape of Water, filmmaker Guillermo Del Toro also rolled into In-N-Out for a post-awards bite:

And in other Golden Globes-related dining news, on Saturday night, James Franco — whose professional reputation in Hollywood is under scrutiny right now — hosted a dinner for the 11 other Best Actor nominees. Call Me By Your Name actor Armie Hammer captured this meeting of the minds on Instagram:
Although Hammer doesn’t mention the restaurant’s name, judging by the red walls, chandeliers, and shelves full of bottles, this is clearly the private dining room of Osteria Mozza (check out a photo for comparison here). Considering the fact that this restaurant is co-owned by disgraced chef Mario Batali, Osteria Mozza is a questionable choice for a meal tied to this year’s Golden Globes. In a broader cultural context, this year’s event was, after all, largely about Hollywood showing support for the #metoo movement.
