LOS ANGELES While last year's Golden Globes directly addressed Hollywood's pervasive sexual harassment scandals, this year's award show took on a more celebratory tone. Held on Sunday, January 6, at the Beverly Hilton, the 76th Golden Globes—hosted by first-timers Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh and broadcast on NBC—mostly shied away from politics, instead creating an upbeat, conflict-free atmosphere that celebrated diversity.
The biggest headlines from the star-studded evening came from big wins for Bohemian Rhapsody and Green Book, which unexpectedly earned top honors over critical darlings such as A Star Is Born and Black Panther. What wasn’t surprising, though, was the night’s fun, festive vibe, a trademark of the Globes. (After all, it's one of the only major award shows where attendees can eat and drink during the ceremony; check out the menu here.)
The revelry continued to the after-parties, most of which took place right in the historic hotel. As the Beverly Hilton's general manager told us last year, the hotel turns into a mini city for the Golden Globes every year, with a staff of 6,000 chefs, servers, concierges, and more. The night's most high-profile bashes took over the main event spaces, with Fox on the roof, Amazon Prime Video in the penthouse, HBO by the pool, InStyle and Warner Bros. in the courtyard, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association in the garden, and Netflix in a nearby tent.
Here’s a peek at the stylish decor, production, florals, and catering at these and more of the weekend's most glamorous events.
