Stop! Hammer time.

Armie Hammer and Padma Lakshmi felt the need for speed during the Audi Sportscar Experience at the Raceway at Sonoma, Calif. on Saturday.

Alongside his wife Elizabeth Chambers, the Lone Ranger star had the chance to drive Audi R8, RS 5 and TT RS vehicles.

"Armie and Elizabeth were lovey-dovey the entire time, constantly holding hands or with their arms around one another," an onlooker tells PEOPLE.

"They both got behind the wheel to take laps on the track, but after just one round, Armie swooped Elizabeth up up in his arms and carried her – Prince Charming style – after they got out of the car," the source adds.

Meanwhile, Top Chef host Lakshmi came dressed like a pro in black leggings, boots and a stunning red and black leather jacket.

Hollywood award season sure takes Jesse Eisenberg back.

"I feel like when I was 13 and I had to go to bar mitzvahs every weekend. This is the same feeling. You have to put on a suit every weekend to go meet with a bunch of Jews," the actor, 27, nominated as Best Actor for The Social Network, joked at the annual Oscar nominees' luncheon on Monday in Beverly Hills.

It's all a little nerve-wracking – not that he's complaining. "It's been nice, and I think the alternative would be if nobody liked your movie, so this is better," he says. "It's been an honor to be part of this long, overwhelming experience."

A king with a stutter; a ballet dancer driven to the brink of madness; a lesbian mom; and a nebbishy television producer – those were the diverse roles that won this year's crop of stars their best actor and actress trophies at Sunday's Golden Globes.

This year, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association shared the wealth, divvying up acting and best picture awards among the many different nominees.

The Social Network was named best motion picture drama at the ceremony, and ultimately earned four awards at the show, the most of any film. The Kids Are All Right picked up best motion picture comedy, with Annette Bening named best actress in a comedy for her role as Nic, a doctor, who has children with Julianne Moore's free-spirited character.

Leave it to Jesse Eisenberg to find a dark cloud in the silver lining of awards season.

"It's very nice to be a part of something that's been received this well," the Golden Globe-nominated star of The Social Network tells PEOPLE, but adds with a laugh, "although it just kind of sets you up for a great disappointment later in life."

Eisenberg, 27, has received critical acclaim for his portrayal of Facebook creator Mark Zuckerberg, but the New York-bred actor is still adjusting to being recognized by his peers.

He's getting raves for playing Harvard-turned-Olympic rowers Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss in the hit film The Social Network, but off-screen Armie Hammer is tackling another new role: husband.

"I was always the guy who thought I'd never get married because [I thought], 'There's never going to be one woman worth giving up all the others,' " says the great-grandson of mogul Armand Hammer. "But she knocked me off my feet."

Hammer, 24, wed journalist Elizabeth Chambers in May, during the filming of The Social Network – right before filming a particularly grueling rowing scene.
