Travis Kelce looks downcast arriving at Chiefs game while Taylor Swift is expected at 2024 Golden Globes

She’s a nominee, and he’s on the bleachers.

Travis Kelce appeared to be feeling girlfriend Taylor Swift’s absence in the stands at his game Sunday — despite the singer being in the same city for the 2024 Golden Globes.

The Kansas City Chiefs tight end looked solemn upon his arrival at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles, mere miles away from where Swift is expected to appear at the awards show.

Furthermore, coaches decided to bench Kelce for the team’s match-up against the Chargers, so the NFL star will sit on the sidelines as the pop songstress likely heads to the red carpet.

A video captured before the game showed the athlete dressed in a black hoodie and joggers as he attempted to hide his face with a pair of sunglasses.

“When you know you’ll be sitting on bench the whole game and your girlfriend will be at golden globes alone,” the caption read.

Page Six exclusively reported last week that Kelce — who went public with Swift in September 2023 — won’t be making his red carpet debut with the “Anti-Hero” hitmaker this weekend despite their proximity.

According to our sources, Kelce, 34, will not join Swift, also 34, for any afterparties since he will be jetting back to Kansas City, Mo., with his team following the game.

While the two-time Super Bowl champion supports his teammates on the sidelines, his girlfriend could potentially win her first Golden Globe.

The “Lavender Haze” songstress was nominated for Cinematic and Box Office Achievement for “Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour.”

Swift has previously been nominated four times at the Globes for Best Original Song but has never won.

Leading up to awards season, the singer had been dedicating her free weekends to cheering on her hunky NFL beau at his football games.

And in the Grammy winner’s words, she’s “proud” to support her man.

“When you say a relationship is public, that means I’m going to see him do what he loves, we’re showing up for each other, other people are there and we don’t care,” Swift told Time Magazine last month.

“The opposite of that is you have to go to an extreme amount of effort to make sure no one knows that you’re seeing someone. And we’re just proud of each other.”
