When the cameras are off, just aren't quick enough or are simply not available—E! News is there.

The 2018 Golden Globes aired live on NBC on Sunday from the Beverly Hilton Hotel. During the show, we spotted some rather adorable and often hilarious moments that occurred that ensued behind the scenes, on the red carpet and in the ballroom, which you didn't see on TV.

Before the show...

On the red carpet, a woman whispered to Shailene Woodley that Ashley Judd, who played her mother in Divergent, was nearby. Woodley looked overwhelmed and emotional. She waited for Judd to finish a press interview and then greeted her. The two embraced for a long time and Woodley was seen whispering into Judd's ear. When they finished hugging, Woodley was seen with tears in her eyes. Judd then kissed her hand and Woodley asked to take a photo together.

Also on the red carpet, Judd, Reese WitherspoonSalma Hayek and Eva Longoria greeted each other with lots of hugs and kisses and asked Witherspoon's husband Jim Toth to take a photo of the four of them.

Witherspoon and Longoria entered the ballroom holding hands and Meryl Streep greeted them at the steps, flashing her Times Up pin. They excitedly hugged. Witherspoon then greeted Halle Berry who stood nearby. The women then walked down to their seats. Toth was later spotted trying to find the group and asked security for help.

Margot Robbie, nominated for her leading role in I, Tonya, walked in with her mother, who asked her, "Are you nervous?" She responded, "Yes, I am so nervous."

Gal Gadot had a bit of a problem getting into the ballroom. Security held her at the door for a while before she was allowed in.

Michelle Williams was organizing her table and wanted to make sure all the "girls sit together."

Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman shared a sweet private moment together by the patio door to the ballroom. He wrapped his hand around her lower back as they whispered into each other's ears.

The Stranger Things Kids—Millie Bobby Brown, Finn Wolfhard, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Noah Schnapp and Sadie Sink— sat together at one table with the rest of the cast and had a blast taking selfies and funny pics of each other.

While sitting with Bateman by the bar, Rockwell pointed very excitedly to Michael Keaton and said, "That's f--king Michael Keaton!"

Margot Robbie and Tonya Harding, the disgraced former Olympic skater the actress plays in I, Tonya, walked over to Hanks and Wilson and asked for a photo. The actor moved to take a selfie but Robbie then volunteers to take a pic of Harding standing in between the couple.
