Taylor Swift Cheers on Barbie's Golden Globe Win, Despite Loss

The singer attends the 2024 Golden Globes and shows support for fellow nominee Barbie

Taylor Swift may not have won an award at the 2024 Golden Globes, but that didn’t dampen her spirits. The singer attended the prestigious awards ceremony held at The Beverly Hills Hilton on Sunday, December 7, where her Eras Tour concert film was nominated in the Cinematic and Box Office Achievement category. Although Barbie ultimately took home the award, Swift was seen cheering and was one of the first people in the crowd to stand. Despite her loss, Swift’s presence and support for her fellow nominees made quite an impression.

Swift’s Eras Tour and its Success

Swift’s Eras Tour and its subsequent concert movie catapulted her to superstardom in 2023. The film, which premiered in October of that year, quickly became the second highest-grossing concert movie of all time, earning a staggering $250.3 million worldwide. This achievement solidified Swift’s status as one of the biggest stars in the music industry.

The Nominees and Category Inclusion

The Cinematic and Box Office Achievement category, in which Swift’s Eras Tour was nominated, made its debut at the 2024 Golden Globes. Alongside Barbie, Swift was up against formidable contenders such as Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, John Wick: Chapter 4, Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part 1, Oppenheimer, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, and The Super Mario Bros. Movie. The inclusion of this category reflected the growing recognition of the impact and success of concert films in the entertainment industry.

Swift’s Night at the Golden Globes

Throughout the evening, the cameras frequently panned to Swift, who was seated at the same table as her close friends Keleigh Teller and Emma Stone. The singer was also spotted catching up with her best friend Selena Gomez. Notably, Swift was seen sipping her drink when Golden Globes host Jo Koy made a playful joke about her relationship with NFL star Travis Kelce during his opening monologue. Swift attended the awards show without Kelce, as his team, the Kansas City Chiefs, played a game earlier that day.

Swift’s Previous Golden Globe Nomination

This year was not the first time Swift had been nominated for a Golden Globe. In 2020, she was up for the Best Original Song category for her song “Beautiful Ghosts” from the musical movie Cats, in which she also starred. Although she didn’t win, Swift expressed her gratitude and excitement for the nomination via Instagram, acknowledging the honor bestowed upon her by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.


Despite not taking home a Golden Globe this year, Taylor Swift’s presence at the 2024 awards ceremony was notable. Her support for fellow nominee Barbie, her success with the Eras Tour concert film, and her previous nomination in 2020 showcased her enduring impact on the music and film industries. Swift’s ability to gracefully handle both victories and losses solidifies her status as a respected artist and a role model for aspiring performers.
