LOS ANGELES Since the official announcement of the Golden Globes ceremony cancellation came yesterday, we've confirmed that the slate of big parties at the Beverly Hilton has been decimated as well. In Style's party with Warner Brothers, overseen by Cyd Wilson for Time Inc., is off, along with HBO's party, helmed by New York-based Eileen Rivard. NBC Universal's party has also been scrapped.
“The news of [the cancellation was] very disappointing as this was an absolutely stunning design, complete with 56 black Murano crystal chandeliers, a water curtain with video monitors built in it, and classic Cartier jewelry again,” said Mark Yumkas, who heads up the NBC party's design and production team at Angel City.
Somewhat surprisingly, some of the gift suites around town will nonetheless go on.
Access Hollywood's suite with CVS will keep its doors open. An email sent from organizers to sponsors read, “The 2nd Annual Access Hollywood STUFF YOU MUST...Lounge will go on as scheduled independent of any decisions announced regarding the Golden Globes. Access Hollywood and On 3 Productions continue to receive positive responses from talent and media in regard to the Lounge. Given the Lounge’s independent status as a gift lounge not directly affiliated with the Globes, our strong charitable association, the influence of Access Hollywood in the entertainment industry, and On 3 Productions’ strong relationships, we anticipate another amazing event!”
