Naomi Watts doesn't need to be the only one celebrating her SAG Award nomination on Sunday.

Even if you're only catching the big night from the small screen, honor the actress and her film The Impossible with a specialty cocktail created by mixologists at Jacob's Creek, the Australian wine line for which Watts serves as an ambassador – and is "not a bad looking face for the brand," chief winemaker Bernard Hickin adds.

"This delicately bubbly and bittersweet cocktail is based on the inspiring true story of one family's struggle to survive and locate each other after the catastrophic Tsunami in Southeast Asia," Andrew White, mixologist at the Brooklyneer in N.Y.C., tells PEOPLE.

How to get the jump on your sister Oscar nominees? Host Saturday Night Live – and come out punching.

That was Jennifer Lawrence's modus operandi this weekend, with the Silver Linings Playbook's Best Actress contender taking good-natured swipes at her competition during her silver-tongued opening monologue on the NBC comedy show.

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.

At the very least, The Impossible will make you want to grab your loved ones and never let them go. It could also turn a sensitive viewer – and who isn't, in these troubling days? – into a ball of anxiety.

The movie (in theaters now) stars Naomi Watts and Ewan McGregor and tells the true story of the Belon family, who were on a Christmas vacation in Thailand when they were torn apart by the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami that claimed more than 200,000 souls.
