People hoping to stream the Golden Globes live on Sunday were sorely disappointed -- because NBC didn't have a live stream.
The network's "Follow LIVE coverage" promoted on its website consisted of its Twitter feed, which included re-tweets from the official accounts of the Golden Globe Awards and various NBC personalities and shows. Oh yeah, some celebrity tweets as well.
Meanwhile, ticked-off tweets were streaming just fine. Some folks had to move to Canada.
Think the modern-day Golden Globes are rowdy, with booze flowing freely during the show and a slew of parties awaiting the guests afterward? It's hardly a new thing.
In 1958, a few members of the Rat Pack decided to do it their way, and they created a new tradition that we take for granted today: celebrities running the show.
See, the Globes were presented by members of the foreign press until 1958. Then Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr. -- and their cocktails and cigarettes -- apparently lost interest in being audience members and commandeered the Beverly Hilton stage. They spiced up the show and set a star-studded presenter precedent that remains to this day.
Inside the ladies room four makeup artists/hairstylists are ready to give touch-ups.
Chantal Moore has been doing this for 10 years and says celebs most often actually want help with their clothes--not their makeup.
She keeps double-stick tape and safety pins on her, but can't do much else to help with wardrobe malfunctions. Other common requests? Lipstick touch-ups. As for working in a bathroom the whole night, Moore says it's not that odd to her. "We're always hidden somewhere."
