Taylor Swift to grace the 2024 Golden Globes solo, surprising fans as her partner Travis Kelce opts out, despite the duo’s presence in the city of angels.

Taylor Swift and her boyfriend, Travis Kelce, have different plans for their time in Los Angeles this week. While Swift is set to attend the 81st annual Golden Globes on Sunday as a nominee, Kelce won’t be joining her. The 34-year-old singer has been nominated in the Cinematic and Box Office Achievement category for her concert film, Eras Tour. The film has been a huge success, grossing over $250 million worldwide in less than three months. However, Kelce, who is a professional football player for the Kansas City Chiefs, has a game against the Los Angeles Chargers at SoFi Stadium on the same night as the awards show. Despite the game being scheduled before the Golden Globes, Kelce plans to return to Kansas City with his teammates immediately after to prepare for the upcoming NFL playoffs. Unfortunately, this means he will miss out on joining Swift at the red carpet and the exciting Golden Globes after-parties.

Swift’s Eras Tour documentary has the potential to secure her first-ever Golden Globe award. The documentary, which was produced with a substantial budget of $15 million, was filmed during one of her extravagant LA shows and was released in theaters on October 13. The film, spanning nearly three hours, offers fans who were unable to secure tickets the chance to witness the enchantment of the show from beginning to end.

Despite the excitement surrounding Swift’s documentary, she faces fierce competition in the new award category, going up against popular box office hits such as Barbie and Oppenheimer. This year’s Golden Globe nomination marks Swift’s fifth nomination in her career, with her previous nominations being in the Best Original Song category over the past decade. Among her past nominations are notable songs like Carolina for the film ‘Where the Crawdads Sing’ (2023), Beautiful Ghоst for ‘Cats’ (2020), Sweeter Than Fiction for ‘One Chance’ (2014), and Safe Sound for ‘The Hunger Games’ (2013).

While Swift has attended the first three nomination ceremonies, she was notably absent from last year’s event. In 2020, she graced the red carpet with her then-boyfriend Joe Alwyn, although they walked separately. However, the couple has since called it quits after a six-year relationship, finalizing their divorce in early 2023. In addition to attending the ceremonies, Swift has also participated as a presenter alongside Idris Elba at the 2019 Golden Globe Awards.

As for her seating arrangement this year, Golden Globes executive producers Glenn Weiss and Ricky Kirshner have stated that Swift has the freedom to choose her seat, indicating her prestigious status within the industry. Despite being physically apart on Sunday night, Swift and Kelce did celebrate the arrival of 2024 together at a spectacular New Year’s Eve party in Kansas City, Missouri over the weekend.

Despite the big game taking place before the awards show on CBS, a source told Page Six that Kelce plans to jet back to Kansas City with his teammates right after to prepare for the NFL playoffs

Despite the fact that the CBS awards show will happen after the big game, an insider revealed to Page Six that Kelce intends to head back to Kansas City with his teammates immediately after, in order to prepare for the upcoming NFL playoffs.
Videos shared by their friends captured some special moments from the night, including one where Kelce and Taylor were caught kissing as the clock struck midnight.
Another guest filmed a video that showcased the festivities, with Travis and Taylor sharing a continuous smooch in the background.
After cheering on Kelce and the Kansas City Chiefs to victory against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday, they continued to party throughout the night.
On her way to Arrowhead Stadium, Swift donned the same Chiefs jacket that Kelce had worn during the Christmas Day NFL game. Upon closer inspection, her version revealed the nickname ‘Tay’ stitched into the sleeve, a moniker Travis has used for her in the past.
As the singer takes a break before her upcoming 2024 tour, they have been spending a significant amount of time together.
Despite being in the midst of a demanding NFL season, Kelce will have the opportunity to spend more time at home due to the Chiefs playing two games in Kansas City on Christmas Day and New Year’s Eve, instead of being scheduled to play on the road.
Kelce had another reason to celebrate on Sunday as the Chiefs secured the AFC West title.
His team, last year’s Super Bowl champions, will conclude their regular season in Los Angeles against the Chargers before shifting their focus to the playoffs.
While Swift’s Eras Tour is set to resume in February, if the Chiefs reach the Super Bowl in Vegas on February 11, she may need to make a last-minute trip from Tokyo, where she will have just completed her first shows of 2024, to the west coast to support Kelce.
