LOS ANGELES (AP) — Tom Hanks, Martin Scorsese, Cate Blanchett, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Aaron Paul celebrated their Golden Globe Award nominations over cucumber sandwiches and scones with cream.

The nominees were among the guests of honor at the British Academy of Film and Television Arts' annual awards-season tea party, held Saturday at the Four Seasons Hotel in Los Angeles.

With no agenda other than to eat, drink and socialize, the stars enjoyed a relaxing respite amid a whirlwind weekend leading into Sunday's Golden Globes.

Benedict Cumberbatch, Christoph Waltz, Shohreh Aghdashloo and "Captain Phillips" supporting actor Barkhad Abdi were also among the celebrants.

Some tea-party guests, including TV mogul Nigel Lythgoe, also popped by the HBO Luxury Lounge held at the hotel, where brands such as Pandora and Sophia Fiori Diamonds were hoping for last-minute placement on the Globes red carpet.
