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.
Awards season has officially begun and all eyes will be on the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills this Sunday when it hosts the 69th Annual Golden Globe Awards inside its iconic International Ballroom--for the 42nd time.
Sadly for all you
celeb stalkers film enthusiasts, rooms at the hotel are entirely sold-out but we have the next best thing for you--the menu for the awards ceremony. So not only can you dissect what your favorite starlets are wearing on the red carpet, you can also dissect what they will be "eating" during the awards show. (We have to assume that those in tight dresses might refrain.)
The Beverly Hilton's executive hotel chef, Suki Sugiura, and the Executive Pastry Chef, Thomas Henzi, have spent six months creating a menu that mixes local California ingredients with global flavors sure to appeal to the show's international attendees. Here's the menu, course by course:
The legend says that if you want to get into trouble then you go to The Chateau Marmont but the other night after the Golden Globes, the hotel proved to be troublesome for several stars and the paparazzi was on hand to catch it all.
First up, "Boardwalk Empires'" Paz La Huerta gave an incredible performance outside the hotel. After being denied entrance to a GQ party, she collapsed and brought down the guy who had been holding her up...and her dress. Yowza.
Later on, "Spiderman" and "Social Network" star Andrew Garfield looked unable to manage the steep hill outside the hotel as did Jennifer Love Hewitt's boyfriend. Hmm...maybe those stars should have booked a room instead?
Meanwhile, swag suites are back!
Last night's Golden Globes Awards gave us plenty to talk about--Ricky Gervais' dig at closeted Scientologists, "The Fighter" Melissa Leo's rambling thank you acceptance speech, Natalie Portman's awkward laugh after joking about how her fiancee really does want to sleep with her, Robert DeNiro's "joke" about deporting illegal immigrants and of course, all the best and worst in red carpet fashion.
The award show also gave us yet another glimpse at the International Ballroom inside The Beverly Hilton. While last year we wondered whether or not the hotel had some, erm, not-so-pretty carpeting, this year a Beverly Hilton hotel rep emailed us some background on the design:
To note, the carpet is iconic to our history. Conrad Hilton opened the hotel in 1955 displaying a sculpture of our icon, a STARBURST at the front of the International Ballroom. Today, the STARBURST sits inside the world-famous International Ballroom where Hollywood’s elite meet weekly.

Amidst all the glittering stars last night that crammed into the Beverly Hills Hilton for the Golden Globes Awards last night, we couldn't help but notice the carpeting in the International Ballroom which looked to be imprinted with big blue stars with pointy edges, almost like they came out of Superman's Fortress of Solitude. Not cute.
Ok, you might accuse us of being too picky here but if this ballroom is going to be on camera every year for the GG awards then let's go with a more muted rug pattern. After all, the Beverly Hilton's ballroom holds quite a lot of history for the Hollywood elite.
To say the parties surrounding last night's Golden Globes were "back and better than ever" after last year's writer's strike would be a bit of an overstatement, but the parties were, in fact, back recession be damned and they proved to be exciting and noteworthy despite the potential for Drew Barrymore's questionable hairstyle decisions to overshadow all the festive fun.
The Associated Press reports that post-ceremony shindigs at the Beverly Hilton were still going down despite the weirdness surrounding the one-year hiatus and the state of the economy, but this year the parties were "fewer than before and not quite so extravagant."
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.

Since the Golden Globe Awards are happening this Sunday, we thought we'd give the ole Roosevelt a lookie loo. And to our surprise we found that rooms were actually even cheaper at $129 a night, checking in Jan. 10 and departing Jan. 12. That's for a superior room in the hotel's main tower which is not as nice as one of the cabana rooms. But...
...those rooms are available too! And at only $199 a night. We say, if you need a place to crash while stalking celebs, this is a good place to do it. Oh and don't forget about the hotel's 25 Degrees Burger Bar. Mmmm....
