Bowie, David: News of Death Amidst Golden Globe Parties

Where were you when the announcement was made that the seminal musician David Bowie had passed away?

The celebratory night took a a different turn when the Golden Globe Awards guests learned of the passing of the legendary musician and pop icon.

I was at the HBO party, socializig and dancing with other HFPA–in fact, dancing after a long time (for me)–when at little after 11 p.m., I saw party goers fleed frantically outside to check their phones for the latest news.

Many guests raised their glasses in commemorative toasts and DJs at events from HBO to the Weinstein-Netflix honored the British legend by playing a medley of his tunes.
