Aaron Paul's Golden Globes morning will definitely include some bubbly.
"I have to do it properly, so you gotta eat first," the Breaking Bad star exclusively told me yesterday at the BAFTA Tea Party at the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills. "I'll have champagne with my breakfast and then just continue with the champagne throughout the day."
Paul, who is nominated for his work as Jesse Pinkman on the hit AMC series, says he has no planes to prepare an acceptance speech for today.

"I'm not even going to think about that," he said. "In all honesty, if it happens, fantastic. I'll be out of my mind up there."
He definitely wants to see costar Bryan Cranston and series creator Vince Gilligan taking home Globes. "Bryan has to win," Paul said. "Vince has to win. I want Vince up on that stage."
Liev Schreiber said on Thursday that if he wins in the best actor drama category for Ray Donovan, he will give his award to Cranston.
"If I were to win, I'll present it to Bryan Cranston, who I think should really win," Schreiber said at Audi's Golden Globes party at Cecconi's in West Hollywood. "That's a pretty amazing show.
"I don't know if he's been nominated every year but he certainly should have won," he continued. "I think it will be a crime if he doesn't win this year."
Also at BAFTA, which was presented by Jaguer and Mulberry, were Cate Blanchett, Michael Fassbender, Leonardo DiCaprio, Dan Stevens, Sally Hawkins, Martn Scorsese, Tom Hanks, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Monica Potter, Bradley Cooper, Daniel Brühl and Benedict Cumberbatch, among many others.
