The 2017 Golden Globe awards are coming up this Sunday, and it’s obviously a pretty big night for Hollywood—or, more accurately, for Beverly Hills, where the ceremony takes place and where road closures will be going into effect starting Saturday afternoon.
As in most years, the awards will be given out at the Beverly Hilton hotel. The Beverly Hills police department has announced they will be shutting down the westbound lanes of Santa Monica Boulevard starting at 2pm tomorrow, on the stretch from Wilshire to Century Park East.
At 6am Sunday, they will also close down the eastbound lanes of the same corridor, and will also be closing Whittier Drive between Sunset and Wilshire boulevards. The closures will remain in effect until after the awards conclude at 8pm. There will also be temporary no parking zones in effect for some of the adjacent residential areas.
You may want to try to avoid much of Beverly Hills, even outside the closure zones, because traffic is expected to be locked with limos trying to drop assorted stars and nominees off for the ceremony, which starts at 5pm.
This year’s ceremony will be hosted by Jimmy Fallon and the full list of nominees includes several nods each for buzzy films like La La Land, Moonlight and Manchester by the Sea, as well as television favorites including Game of Thrones and Stranger Things.
Didn’t get an invite but still want to watch the show? Several organized viewing parties are taking place, including Cinefamily’s potluck with comedian Doug Benson and a watch party at Tuck Room Tavern.
