Taking a break from their usual duties, Matt Damon and Joaquin Phoenix headed over to the Beverly Hilton for the 71st Golden Globes earlier tonight (January 12).

The “Behind the Candelabra” and "Her" studs flashed their handsome smiles to the shutterbugs as they meandered their way inside to catch all the star-studded action.

Nominated for Best Actor in a Mini-Series or TV Movie, the 43-year-old star faces off against his co-star in the HBO film, Michael Douglas.

Every year, the Golden Globe Awards honors the biggest and brightest stars and projects in television and film, and this time around there is an abundance of greatness to be recognized.

In the Best TV Series (Drama) category “Breaking Bad,” “Downton Abbey,” “The Good Wife,” “House of Cards,” and “Masters of Sex” all have a chance at glory.
