There could be 100 people in the room, but Lady Gaga only needed a little TLC from fiancé Christian Carino to survive the 2019 Golden Globes. The singer and actress was a best actress nominee for her role in A Star Is Born, and though she didn’t win, she and the ASIB team did nab an award for best original song, “Shallow.” Through the highs and even higher highs of the evening, Gaga had her man right by her side.Christian was seemingly supportive, but relationship expert Jane Greer, Ph.D, and author of What About Me?, analyzed the couples' body language at the awards show—just to be sure.
