Beyoncé and Jay-Z scrapped the Golden Globes red-carpet and arrived an hour late to the ceremony. The couple missed Ricky Gervais’ opening monologue, and a couple of the early awards, but snuck in just as Kate McKinnon was introducing Ellen DeGeneres for the Carol Burnett Award.

They were accompanied by a bodyguard who appeared to be carrying two bottles of Ace of Spades champagne, a brand that Jay-Z part owns.

The singer might have been an hour late to the event, but her choice of outfit indicated that she wanted to be seen. She wore a black gown with gold puff sleeves and a plunging neckline. Accessories came by way of a pair of sparkling chandelier earrings.

While we weren’t treated to any full-length pictures of the couple on the night, they later took to Instagram to share more snaps of their outfits.

Both Beyoncé and Jay-Z gave DeGeneres a standing ovation and were later pictured sitting on the US chat show host’s table.

This is the first time that Beyoncé has attended the Golden Globes in over decade. In 2009, she was joined by Jay-Z at the awards ceremony where she was nominated for Best Original Song for Once In A Lifetime performed in Cadillac Records. The singer starred as Etta James in the film.

This time round, she was nominated in the same category with the song Spirit for The Lion King. She lost out to Elton John and Bernie Taupin for their collaboration on the Rocketman song I’m Gonna Love Me Again.
