World-class Presenters Lounge at Golden Globe

MUMBAI: The 67th Annual Golden Globe Awards has created a world-class Presenters Lounge that many of Hollywood‘s celebrities will visit briefly before walking onstage to present the world famous statuettes in 25 categories in Sunday, 17 January evening.


The Golden Globe Award presenters can sip Moët & Chandon Champagne or Smartwater beverages (the official water of The 67th Annual Golden Globe Awards) and nibble on culinary delights before venturing on stage to present a Golden Globe. There will also be five make-up stations in addition to a fully-stocked bar with bartender.


Said Hollywood Foreign Press Association President Philip Berk, "We have the most extraordinary roster of movie and television stars ever assembled for an awards telecast."


"It‘s only fitting that they be pampered with luxurious and glamorous accommodations before they venture on stage to present a Golden Globe before multimillions of viewers in 160 countries worldwide."


Presenters visiting the lounge will include Amy Adams, Christina Aguilera, Jennifer Aniston, Halle Berry, Josh Brolin, Gerard Butler, Cher, Chace Crawford, Cameron Diaz, Robert DeNiro, Leonardo DiCaprio, Colin Farrell, Harrison Ford, Jodie Foster, Jennifer Garner, Matthew Fox, Mel Gibson, Tom Hanks, Neil Patrick Harris, Kate Hudson, Nicole Kidman, Ashton Kutcher, Taylor Lautner, Sophia Loren, Paul McCartney, Helen Mirren, Julia Roberts, Mickey Rourke, Kiefer Sutherland, Kate Winslet, Reese Witherspoon, Sam Worthington and the cast of The Hangover.


The Golden Globe Awards Presenters Lounge was designed by internationally renowned interior designer Kenneth Bordewick who says he wanted the Presenters Lounge to combine "the glamorous luxury of Hollywood‘s Golden Age with the glitter of today‘s top stars."


Furnishings in the room include vintage Lalique pieces shipped from France valued at $800,000 including an antique dining table from 1920 with the signature of Renea Lalique, exquisite furniture from Moura Starr including a leather sofa and black crystal coffee table valued at $400,000, and hand-embroidered black and white silk drapes valued at $25,000.


There are also art masterpieces on loan from the Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation and the Yehoshua Kovarsky Family Trust estimated to be worth more than $1,000,000. There are also bronze sculptures by famed sculptor Gilad Ben-Atzi in addition to a crystal chandelier.


During a single week in 2009, he met with Paul McCartney, the Jonas Brothers and Mariah Carey. Kenneth Bordewick Interior Designs‘ accomplishments have been featured in a variety of publications including Architectural Digest and House and Garden.
