All those tastefully done-up stars will have fewer parties to attend after the awards show and dinner in the Beverly Hilton Hotel. In the past, the hotel has hosted up to seven post-parties, but only four parties — In Style/Warner Bros.; NBC Universal/Focus Features; HBO, and AMC — had been confirmed. Among those forgoing their post-ceremony soirees are Fox, Paramount Studios and The Weinstein Co., with the latter two opting for smaller pre-parties on Saturday.
Perhaps lurking like a creeper outside the hotel may get you a glimpse of a few stars (if you're into the stalkerazzi kind of thing), but don't expect them to be carrying much in and out of the front doors: with sponsors' budgets being slashed left and right, those celeb swag suites will be hard to come by this year. Shame.
If actually shacking up at the Beverly Hilton interests you, it won't be cheap. The hotel is still advertising its Golden Globes Package including a room for 2 nights, breakfast, a boxed lunch and "red carpet seating," but it will run you $3,000 (hint: opt for the $129 Roosevelt instead). The 66th Annual Golden Globe Awards air Sunday on NBC at 8 p.m.
