They haven't been hyped-up like crazy (at least, we haven't heard a whole lot of hype and buzz about them), but FYI: the Golden Globes will go down this Sunday, returning after a one-year hiatus due to last year's writers' strike.

The celebs will be flooding LA, from Kate Winslet to Angelina Jolie, and WWD has the scoop on this year's festivities — and where the celeb-stalking will be primo: the Beverly Hilton. Because of the economy, the number of parties will be significantly smaller than in previous years — but that doesn't mean they've stopped altogether.

Per WWD:

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.
