Liev Schreiber, Naomi Watts, Kate Bosworth & Fiancé Have Date Night in West Hollywood

Cecconi's in West Hollywood was the site of a celebrity date night as Audi kicked off Golden Globes week with a star-studded bash on Sunday.

Liev Schreiber and Naomi Watts arrived holding hands and spent the evening cozied up in one corner of the restaurant's covered patio, an onlooker tells PEOPLE.

With Schreiber sipping on a glass of red wine with one arm draped adoringly around the beaming Watts's waist, the duo couldn't look any more in love.

The couple later caught up with actress Kate Bosworth and her fiancé, director Michael Polish, with Schreiber only breaking away to cross the crowded room and greet a late-arriving, Connie Britton, who was resplendent in an off-the-shoulder floor-length red gown.

Hayden Panettiere Ties Up a Tattooed Lover in Country Music Video

Guys, watch out for Hayden Panettiere!

The actress, who plays seductive country starlet Juliette Barnes on Nashville, has got the vixen thing down (not to mention a darn good twang!) in a brand new music video for "Telescope," the ABC show's first official single to be released.

Performing as Juliette, Panettiere makes her "cheatin', schemin'" tattooed lover (played by actor Daniel Ness) pay by stringing him up with rope and hanging him upside down.

It was arguably the most-anticipated premiere of the season, filled with big, brassy country performances (by Connie Britton's Rayna and Hayden Panettiere's Juliette), crying drama queens (that would be Juliette, again) and, of course, sex (Juliette! Behave!).

But was ABC's heavily hyped Nashville all it promised to be?

Here's what y'all (plus some country stars!) had to say:

Connie Britton: Wives & Mothers Are Sexy, Too!

Connie Britton's TV resumé is nothing if not well-rounded.

The actress, 45, has played working mom Tami Taylor on Friday Night Lights, the haunted and troubled Vivien on American Horror Story, and now, she'll portray fading country star Rayna James on the upcoming Nashville.

But for all her characters' differences, Britton is keen on bringing one unifying characteristic to each of the roles.

"It's important in whatever character I play that I show as many different levels of what it is to be a woman as I can. That includes being sexy!" Britton tells Redbook in its November issue.
