Maybe that's because at the moment her rival won for "Skyfall" and waxed ecstatic onstage during her acceptance speech, TV cameras caught the pop superstar looking not so gracious in defeat.
Taylor, however, should have saved the mad face for a few minutes later.
Because once Adele was done at the podium, the songstress found herself the butt of a joke from Globes host Tina Fey, who, drink in hand, jabbed, "You know what, Taylor Swift? You stay away from Michael J. Fox's son."
Of course, the funnylady was referencing the 23-year-old Swift's penchant for short-lived romances, most recently her two-month fling with One Direction hottie Harry Styles which reportedly ended last week.
But the singer, who was nominated for her song "Safe & Sound" from The Hunger Games, did receive some sympathy from cohost Amy Poehler, who urged Swift to "go for it." Cracked Fey in reply, "No, she needs some me time to learn about herself."
Well, maybe Taylor will write a song about them too.
