Joaquin Phoenix and Leonardo DiCaprio had plenty in common at Sunday's Golden Globe Awards. Both were nominees for best actor in a comedy or musical; both brought their moms to the event; and both later accepted Diddy's invitation for some after-hours fun.
DiCaprio won for The Wolf of Wall Street, but that didn't seem to dampen Phoenix's spirits, as the actors, both 39, hit up Butter Group's soon-to-open nightclub 1 OAK LA in West Hollywood, where Diddy held court and a deejay spun tunes late into the night – and Diddy's new DeLeon tequila flowed generously.
Phoenix, who was nominated for Her, arrived at about 10:45 p.m. with his mom, his girlfriend Allie Teilz and some other friends. The famously reclusive actor was in a great mood, smiling and laughing throughout the evening and even hitting the dance floor with Teilz. At one point, Teilz threw her arms around him and the two were lovey dovey.

In Spike Jonze's acclaimed new film Her, the titular pronoun refers to the female voice of a computer operating system, with whom a lonely writer (Joaquin Phoenix) falls in love. Sexy Scarlett Johansson plays the Siri-esque tool, making the premise a little more plausible.
In honor of Her's release this week, let's look back at some of the other movie characters who've been smitten with inanimate objects over the years.

Who's that girl?
No, it's not True Blue-era Madonna, in all her peroxide blond glory. It's actually 20-year-old DJ Allie Teilz, the latest love interest of Joaquin Phoenix.
Photos of the new couple strolling around Rome this week made us do a double take: The 39-year-old actor and his platinum-coiffed squeeze are dead ringers for a young Madonna and Sean Penn, who were married from 1985 to 1989.

Now, that's an odd couple.

The duo visited Larchmont restaurant, where they dined with The Master star Joaquin Phoenix (not pictured).

This year's Oscars may not take place until Feb. 24, but the ceremony's host, Seth MacFarlane, already started earning his salary Thursday morning – by joining Emma Stone to announce the nominees for the 85th annual Academy Awards from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences' headquarters in Beverly Hills.
And the name that kept coming up: Lincoln, which reaped the lion's share number of nominations, 12, including those for Best Picture, Best Director Steven Spielberg, Best Actor Daniel Day-Lewis and Supporting Actress Sally Field.
Other highly recognized films were Life of Pi, with 11 nominations; Les Misérables, with nine; and Argo, with seven, though, surprisingly, not one for its director Ben Affleck.
