While organizers are preparing for tonight’s 2017 Golden Globes ceremony by doubling down on security and crossing their fingers that Winter Storm Iras steers clear of the Beverly Hilton (Drew Barrymore and Quantico star Priyanka Chopra separately experienced snow delays just trying to fly to Los Angeles on Saturday), celebrity attendees are busy with their own preceremony rituals.

Skin care

For a few, it’s all one of the past year’s most popular social media beauty trends: sheet-mask selfies. Amy Landecker of Transparent kicked it off days ago with a cheekily off-kilter shot of her Korean face-mask-plus-reading-glasses look.

Game of Thrones’ Maisie Williams got in on the act earlier today with a quirky closeup of her masked face, which she snapped while soaking in the tub (see above). And Veep star Julia-Louis Dreyfus had her own masked moment.

As did actress, producer, and mom-of-two Drew Barrymore, whose messy mask was so real, it gave us our 10,015th reason to adore her.

First it's like this #goldenglobes #kbeauty

Hair, makeup & nails

Landecker, who plays the turbulent eldest daughter, Sarah Pfefferman, on the seven-time nominated series, has been chronicling her Golden Globes prep for days, showing off a pair of shimmery Anniel T-strap peep-toes that may or may not make it to the Globes carpet (the event is just one of many parties celebs have been attending this weekend, albeit the biggest), along with a no-makeup shot of her hair prep with stylist-to-the-stars Rod Ortega.

Meanwhile, This Is Us star Chrissy Metz was so excited to get dolled up by her “glam team” — which consist of makeup artist Motoko and hair stylist David Gardner — that she couldn’t resist sharing a video of the routine to Instagram, where her energy is palpable. Though we don’t yet know what’s she’s wearing, we know who Metz is wearing: designer and body-positivity advocate Christian Siriano.

Also getting their tresses tended to were 12-year-old Millie Bobby Brown, who reveals that her hair, which was famously buzzed off for her star-making turn as the butt-kicking Eleven from the Netflix sci-fi sensation Stranger Things, now hits at her chin.

Anna Kendrick debuted her mani, a deep burgundy, while showing off the bling she had to choose from. A bit much? Yeah, we think so, Anna.

The quirkiest beauty move we’ve seen so far, though, has to be Crazy Ex-Girlfriend star Rachel Bloom’s manicure, which features the faces of entire cast of the comedy on her fingertips. The day before, Bloom shared a sweet shot of herself pre-facial — while snuggling with her cat, of course.

Ok, the queen of quirk herself, the one-and-only Goldie Hawn, may have outdone Bloom. We mean, this:

Super pumped for the Golden Globes ????????

Meanwhile, Laura Dern got “Globed up” by her own glam team while wearing a cozy navy bathrobe.

And Lily Collins — who’s nominated for Best Actress for her role in Rules Don’t Apply — chronicled the process of waking up to getting in the chair to have her hair and makeup done; the star tested a lineup of Lancome lipstick shades on her forearm.

On Saturday, Collins shared a shot of herself sinking into a sea of designer gowns, picking one for her red carpet moment. “What a dream. Soaking in every moment and savoring the details…,” the 27-year-old daughter of pop legend Phil Collins captioned the photo.

Looks like she found her dream dress — but we’ll have to wait for red-carpet arrivals to see it because all Collins is giving us is this teaser.

The final zip…

Sarah Jessica Parker also gave us a little taste of which shoes she’ll be marching down the red carpet in — all of the options from her own SJP line, of course.

And in the always fiercely competitive category of which shoe to choose, the nominees are… x, Sj

Meanwhile, the boys of Stranger Things are having their own fashion moment, with Caleb McLaughlin, Gaten Matarazzo, and Finn Wolfhard stepping out of their hotel on Sunday in perfectly tailored tuxes — and with some Ocean’s Eleven-style swagger. We’re loving the pink accent on McLaughlin’s bow tie, by the way.

Getting in our ride!????????????⭐️

Inner beauty

Other stars opted to take care of themselves on the inside, too, in preparation for the event, which is hosted this year by Jimmy Fallon. Best Actress nominee Jessica Chastain, who starred in Miss Sloane, posted a pensive shot of herself on Sunday enjoying stillness before the mayhem. Two hours later, she was nourishing her body with a salad while surrounding by her beauty crew. “It’s important to keep your energy up,” she wrote.

Scream Queens star Lea Michele, meanwhile, made fitness a priority on Sunday by taking her tanned and toned self on a morning hike with her hairstylist, Sarah Potempa. “Stunning view when you work hard climbing to the top,” she wrote. On Saturday, she posted a shot with Potempa as the two prepared her look for the big day.

Stunning view when you work hard climbing to the top ???????? Thanks @sarahpotempa for the morning hike ????
