Last year, Taylor Swift and her British boyfriend Joe Alwyn had their first real public date night at the 2020 Golden Globes. The private couple, then of three years, had deliberately avoided being filmed at award show ceremonies together, despite Alwyn and Swift nominated for their acting and music work respectively. At most, they would attend after-parties together; even then, they never posed on the carpet alongside each other.
Will tonight bring Swift and Alwyn’s second award show date night? Not this time. Neither Swift nor Alwyn are attending tonight’s bicoastal Golden Globes ceremony. Neither are presenters, and neither are nominated for their work, so they have no reason to be there. (There is no documentary category at the Golden Globes, so Netflix’s Taylor Swift documentary Miss Americana wasn’t eligible for any awards.)
Due to the coronavirus pandemic too, this year’s Golden Globes are far from typical—and won’t have a full celebrity audience. After parties won’t be happening anywhere near the scale of previous years, so Swift and Alwyn making a surprise appearance at one of those isn’t likely either.
The couple, instead, will maintain the private life they’ve had for most of the coronavirus pandemic. While their exact whereabouts are currently unknown, the couple likely isn’t even in Los Angeles or New York. Swift and Alwyn were last seen in London in mid-January 2021. That outing was the first time in nearly a year since Swift and Alwyn were photographed outside together.
Swift recently gave Alwyn a shoutout in a February 2021 interview with Vanity Fair, crediting her boyfriend for helping her find the courage to speak up about politics more.
“As a country musician, I was always told it’s better to stay out of [politics],” Swift started. “The Trump presidency forced me to lean in and educate myself. I found myself talking about government and the presidency and policy with my boyfriend, who supported me in speaking out. I started talking to my family and friends about politics and learning as much as I could about where I stand. I’m proud to have moved past fear and self-doubt, and to endorse and support leadership that moves us beyond this divisive, heartbreaking moment in time.”
