It’s one of contemporary Hollywood’s most enduring relationships: for 47 years the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. has made the Beverly Hilton its home for the Golden Globe Awards. No other annual awards event is so intertwined with its venue. Even with changes in ownership, from Conrad Hilton to Merv Griffin to Beny Alagem, several renovations and now a major upgrade (the addition of the 170-room Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills on the former Trader Vic’s corner), the nonprofit remains firm in its commitment to 1,300-guest Intl. Ballroom for its kudos fest.
2018 will mark the ceremony’s 43rd consecutive outing at the hotel. And it’s been suggested the HFPA may host its own glam afterparty at the hotel’s recently completed The Gardens tripartite outdoor venue.
“We have great people, great energy and the most professional staff,” says the Beverly Hilton’s owner, entrepreneur Alagem. The Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills’ opening tops Alagem’s decade-long effort »

Just days after the late mother-daughter duo was laid to rest, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association paid homage to the actresses with the first-ever Golden Globes In Memoriam tribute.
After a brief introduction from host Jimmy Fallon, Reynolds and Fisher were honored with a video reel highlighting their cinematic accomplishments through the years, set to Reynolds' performance of the song, "You Made Me Love You." The tribute concluded with footage of the duo sweetly embracing on-stage, followed by an on-screen slate of their names and a simple heart graphic.
"We've always kept the show as a celebration and as a party, and yet we realize this is a special circumstance," Globes executive producer Barry Adelman told Variety last week, acknowledging plans to remember the late icons during the ceremony.

The 2017 Golden Globe Awards took a moment to honor two recent celebrities that have passed away this year, Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds. Typically, the ceremony doesn’t include an “In Memoriam,” but losing such dear and iconic talent, the Golden Globes paid tribute to the beloved stars by showing a video of the two stars.
“We have not done an ‘In Memoriam’ on the Golden Globes. Those things are handled really well by the Oscars and the Screen Actors Guild,” producer Barry Adelman told People. “But we do realize there were some special circumstances of very recent nature that happened and I think we’ll be acknowledging that.”
Fisher passed away on December 27 after suffering a heart attack. Her mother, Reynolds, died the following day, »
