Austin Butler celebrated his big night at the 2023 Golden Globe Awards Tuesday night surrounded by his peers, Hollywood greats, and, best of all, family. The “Elvis” star brought his older sister, Ashley Butler, along to the award ceremony this year, where he snagged his first-ever win for his spot-on Elvis Presley portrayal. He even shouted her out in his acceptance speech saying, “My sister is here with me tonight. Ashley, I love you so much.”
On Jan. 5, Austin revealed that he planned to bring his sister to the annual ceremony during an interview with Entertainment Tonight. He told the outlet his decision was “hard” but noted, “She’s my one and only sister, so it’ll be nice to be with her.”
Fans likely expected Butler to bring his girlfriend, Kaia Gerber, as his date (or maybe Elvis Presley’s ex-wife, Priscilla) after the couple made their big red carpet debut at the 2022 Met Gala in May. However, the two have still been spending quality time together elsewhere. According to ET, the couple recently returned from vacation with Gerber’s family in Mexico, where they were spotted sharing PDA during a New Year’s getaway in Cabo San Lucas.
Austin took home best performance by an actor in a drama motion picture at this year’s Golden Globes for his “Elvis” role, and his award season streak continues with a single SAG Award nomination, announced on Jan. 11. His name is also getting considerable Oscars buzz on account of Baz Luhrmann’s critically acclaimed flick, so another nomination may be on the horizon.
