Stock up on salsa and chips and get start warming up your live-tweet thumbs. The Golden Globes broadcast is happening this Sunday, January 11.
Now in its 72nd year, the annual ceremony has taken place at The Beverly Hilton (in Beverly Hills, duh) every year since 1961. And the setup for this yearís soiree is well underway. Check out the above photo of the under-construction ballroom tweeted by LA Times film writer Amy Kaufman yesterday. Itís nearly ready for its close-up.
While the annual Globes might be the most prominent event to grace The Beverly Hilton, the hotel has ó perhaps unsurprisingly ó a pretty storied history. Several other famous (and infamous) events incidents have gone down at the Hilton over the years, involving celebrities, politicos, and quite a bit of bump-and-grind.
You can see the full list over on HotelChatter but hereís a quick digest of some of the most hotelís most historic marquee moments. And yes, this is all celeb-related. Remember that in LA, celebrity history is like, just as important as like, textbook history, or whatever you call it.

Today's Golden Globes nominations not only included some of TV's best shows, but also some of the most travel-inspiring filming locations ever. Here's a look at three tours that will bring you to the awe-inspiring locations of three of 2015's Best TV Series, Drama nominees.
Even though the Lockhart Ranch in The Affair is fictional, the scenes that are set there are filmed at the very real Deep Hollow Ranch in Montauk, NY. Deep Hollow offers wagon tours through the pastures, past old barns, and by the Native American artifacts that make up their grounds. They also offer horseback rides with experienced guides along the shore of Block Island Sound. For more information, visit deephollowranch.com.
Last night's Golden Globes represented a wide range of movies, TV shows, and locations. Here are three tours that capture the essence of three of the night's big winners:
Hugh Jackman didn't have much time to celebrate his big win for Les Miserables at the Golden Globes last night.
While the night's other big winners, including Ben Affleck, Lena Dunham, and Jennifer Lawrence, headed upstairs to party hop at the Beverly Hilton, Hugh Jackman had to catch a flight to Atlanta right after the ceremony.

Celebrities don't show up at the Golden Globe Awards just for the free drinks and statues; they're also in it for the studio's infamous after-parties.
Most of the post-Globes festivities are held right at The Beverly Hilton, which can cause chaos for those trying to maneuver through the hotel's hallways and elevators. "Itís like throwing a wedding in a hotel where six other weddings are going on, and youíve all invited the same guests," is how one host described it. But, it also makes for easy party-hopping for celebs, and crashers.
Usually when people speculate on the Golden Globes, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association's pre-Oscars awards for film and television, they're thinking about whether their favorite actors will take home the big prizes. But this year, the question is: Will anyone even be there to pick up their awards? Because of the strike, the WGA officially rejected the HFPA's request for writers--and it plans to do the same for the Oscars. The Globes might be going out to an empty audience.
If you're an A-lister who can't stand to do nothing on Globes night, January 13, how about going to Alec Baldwin's place? The "30 Rock" star, who's been covering the strike for the Huffington Post, jokingly invited everyone over to his New York apartment for Globes night--and there's even a catering menu! As Baldwin writes:
Beverages are as follows: Liter of red or white wine or 6 (six) cold bottles of Amstel (promotional) complimentary. All other cocktails will be cash bar. (Sprite, Coke, Strawberry YooHoo and Diet Peach Snapple are complimentary.)
Getting drunk in NYC with Alec Baldwin? We only wish he were serious.
