Keira Knightley Will Be ‘Very Sober’ During Golden Globes

01/11/2015 at 07:30 PM ET

Actress Keira Knightley won big before Sunday’s Golden Globes even began when she stepped out on the red carpet at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles.

Wearing a Chanel gown, the mom-to-be told E!‘s Ryan Seacrest that her bibbed gown was a group effort.

“Apparently it took 30 people to make this in a week so I have to give a huge thank you to all 30 people,” she said. “It makes me really frightened — what if I spill something? It’s going to make me feel incredibly guilty so hopefully I won’t!”

But Knightley can rest easy: She won’t be staining her dress with any bubbly beverages. While talking to Entertainment Tonight, she joked it will be her first year being “very sober” at the awards due to her pregnancy. “I’ll remember everything tomorrow,” she said.

Instead of sipping on champagne, Knightley plans to stick to her own personal stash of treats — all tucked away in her tiny black clutch.

“Luckily, I don’t have lipstick,” she said of the limited space. “I only have nuts in here. It’s the wonderful thing about being pregnant. You just need to make sure you have snacks. So this is a snack bag.”

Knightley, 29 — who is expecting her first child with her husband, musician James Righton — is nominated for best supporting actress for her role in The Imitation Game, which is up for a total of five awards, including best motion picture.

Before the big event, Knightley stepped out for the American Film Institute Awards on Friday and the BAFTA tea party on Saturday, where she also kept her bump mostly under wraps.

Looks like some old granny dress. Love her, hate the dress.

She looks like she’s wearing a carpet. Sorry, but she can do a lot better. I’ve seen her on other red carpets events recently, and she looked so much better than that ugly thing.

My 7yo can do better than that.

Beautiful woman in a shockingly ugly dress. When I think of all of the gorgeous gowns she could have worn, yet she chose this?? I wonder if she was in a panic once she put it on and looked in a mirror but had no choice but to pretend she liked it. Yikes!

This dress is too old fashioned for an award show.

Her make up is flawless, hair style is kinda too short.
