Last night the legendary The Beverly Hilton was able to put a string of bad luck behind it and focus on what it has been well-known for, hosting the Golden Globe Awards in the famous International Ballroom.

This 70th year was especially welcome because the event was hosted by funny gals Tina Fey and Amy Poehler who would surely inject a welcome dose of humor in a hotel that hasn't had its funny bone tickled in a minute.

And though YMMV when it came to celeb fashion choices, there's no doubt the hotel was ecstatic at all the love being shown, with a good amount of Tweets and images being shown throughout the night. They shouted out everyone from NeNe Leakes from the "Real Housewives of Atlanta" on their feed to "Modern Family's" Ed O'Neill.

We also loved the interview with "Homeland" winner Claire Danes who admitted she was on her way upstairs to her hotel room to relieve her parents from babysitting duties, and feed her one-month old son, Cyrus. Naturally we want to know how kid-friendly The BH is! Are they anything like the Novotel UK's set-up we heard about today, complete with toy chests? That would be utterly rad.

Here's a pic of Alyssa Milano arriving for the evenings parties, though we wonder if she purposely missed out on the feast prepared from BH Executive Chef Suki Sugiura and Executive Pastry Chef Thomas Henzi for the special event, in order to maintain that slender figure. Who could resist a menu that included California pepper honey goat cheese on endive pear salad, smoked flat iron steak, and cappuccino mousse domes, though judging by this photo of glasses left over, many people were probably stickin' to a liquid diet, any old way!

One thing we were bummed about: this year there wasn't the "Golden Globes Package" where a few lucky folks could pay up to $4,000 to red-carpet gawk, get two tickets in award bleacher seats, receive some swag bags, and have the opportunity to breathe Anne Hathaway's air in the lobby bar. That didn't happen this year. Boo. So, we didn't even tempt you with sold out rooms, but we'll see what we can do with the upcoming Oscars in February.
