If you're like millions of Americans you're watching the Golden Globe Awards tonight (sorry Downton Abbey, but we just have to watch).
The Globes are live from the Beverly Hilton Ballroom, which has been a tinsel town treasure since the hotel's opening in 1955. Since then, scandals and starpower have fueled the hotel's glittering reputation. Richard Nixon gave his famous "You won't have Nixon to kick around again," from the hotel. John Edwards was caught in flagrante delicto. And in what has to be the hotel's most tragic episode, Whitney Houston was found dead in a hotel bathroom prior to a planned appearance at The Grammy Awards.
The hotel got a $500 million makeover back in 2005 but it might be time for another spruce up. At the E! Red Carpet Awards some of the stars complained about a pipe bursting on the red carpet and spewing sewage on the glittering crowd. "Could be bad for long gowns," Tweeted host Ryan Seacrest.
About a fifth of the red carpet was soaked with dirty water. But needless to say, the stars negotiated their way around the mess with nary a filthy train in sight.
