If the Golden Globe Awards had an Angel, it might as well be the Beverly Hilton’s setup manager Angel Rodriguez.
This year’s ceremony will be Angel’s 18th Golden Globe Awards. It is his responsibility to make sure that 110 tables are perfectly setup, and 1300 guests are comfortably seated.
Throughout the years, Angel has held a perfect record. One year, however, Angel truly saved the ballroom. “Shortly before the show, we all of sudden realized that due to some miscommunication, over a hundred chairs had been removed during the last camera rehearsals,” he recalls.
“We had to scramble to get them all back at the tables, and the last chair was literally placed the moment the Golden Globes went live!”
Angelina, Brad, Johnny and Halle, rest assured. Angel will be there this Sunday and so will your chairs.Read More »

Oscar Zuleta is a true Golden Globe Awards veteran.
As one of the Beverly Hilton’s longest working employees, Oscar has served the stars at 17 consecutive Golden Globe ceremonies.
“My favorite moment was when I served Sean Connery a glass of red wine,” recalls the Globe vet. “He told me it was custom in his country that those that serve a glass of wine always take the first sip. I told him I couldn’t because I was working.”
“Mr. Connery turned around, talked to my supervisor, came back and handed me a second glass saying, ‘Here’s a toast to both our health!’”
Golden Globe winner Mickey Rourke is responsible for his second most memorable Golden Globe moment. “He saw my name tag and acted in a very funny way upset, saying ‘What the heck are you doing at the Globes!’, to which I replied, ‘But Mickey, I am the only Oscar at the Globes!’”Read More »
