BEVERLY HILLS, CALIFORNIAUNITED STATES (JANUARY 11, 2013) (REUTERS) - The first piece of the red carpet was ceremoniously rolled out on Friday (January 11) in front of the Beverly Hilton Hotel ahead of the 2013 Golden Globes. Crews work around the clock to set up the glitter stage and tables for some of Hollywood's elite.

Dr. Aida Takla O'Reilly, the president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, said that the awards show is always a good time.

"There are lots of magic, lots of talent, lots of miracle makers in the room and it's a fun party, Everybody's happy. Everybody's walking around and enjoying themselves in the commercials. They interact with each other and to each other. It's very exciting. You're getting the artists of the world, the genius of the world in one room and you don't know what they're going to give us on the stage," said O'Reilly.

The 69th annual Golden Globe awards will be handed out on Sunday (January 13) for the best performances in both television and film.
