BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) — Show Bits brings you the 70th annual Golden Globes awards through the eyes of Associated Press journalists. Follow them on Twitter where available with the handles listed after each item.
Jodie Foster's acceptance speech drew warm praise at one of the night's post-show parties.
"It was my favorite part of the evening. It was profound," Jane Fonda said at HBO's packed gathering. She called it "mysterious" and unexpected.
Bill Murray said the speech focused on love but also seemed to indicate a change ahead for Foster.
"I back Jodie wherever she's going with this," he said.
Mel Gibson said his friend's appearance was typical of her, "priceless and classy." Foster director Gibson in 2011's "The Beaver."
Fonda spent time with her co-stars on HBO's "The Newsroom," including Jeff Daniels and Sam Waterston. Others at the party included Sofia Vergara, Jon Hamm and Seth Myers.

This isn't your father's backwoods camping tent.
For their after-Globes soiree, the Warner Bros./InStyle party planners covered a simple outdoor fountain with an elaborate tent that included a sparkling chandelier comprised of 15,000 golden disks.
Ducking inside for a bite of smoked salmon or roasted tenderloin were George Clooney, Jodie Foster, Sacha Baron Cohen, Eva Longoria, Robert Downey Jr. and Ben Affleck, among others.

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler got thumbs up on Twitter as hosts of this year's Golden Globes.
"Can Tina and Amy host everything?" one user asked.
Their fellow "Saturday Night Live" alums Kristin Wiig and Will Ferrill also began trending after their bit presenting the award for lead actress in a motion picture comedy or musical.
The pair inaccurately recapped each of the nominee's films, and when they mentioned Meryl Streep the camera panned to her "Hope Springs" co-star Tommy Lee Jones, who wasn't laughing.
Soon Jones became a trending topic on Twitter and a clip of the moment went viral.
Viewers also took to social media to lament Daniel Day-Lewis getting the "wrap it up" music during his acceptance speech for the lead actor award.
They called the "Lincoln" actor a living legend who does not deserve to be played off the stage.
Twitter users may also have a longer memory than one might imagine.
"Homeland" is one of the most popular shows on TV, but when Damien Lewis took to the stage to accept his Golden Globe it reminded many of his performance in the HBO miniseries "Band of Brothers." That became a trending topic too.
