Behind the Scenes at Golden Globe Headquarters


The countdown is on to the 2012 Golden Globe Awards and ET's Nancy O'Dell goes to the ballroom of the Beverly Hilton Hotel to get an update on last-minute preparations.

Nancy was there as Golden Globe officials revealed exclusively to ET that Madonna would present at the glamorous ceremony on Sunday.

One of the most talked about aspects of this year's Golden Globes is the return of sharp-tongued host Ricky Gervais. Nancy asked the president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, Dr. Aida Takla O'Reilly, about whether guests have anything to worry about with Gervais in control of the show. 

Nancy also caught up with Japanese musician Yoshiki Hayashi, who composed the theme song for this year's Golden Globe Awards and explains his feelings on being chosen for the hour. 

Among the facts unveiled to ET about this year's ceremony: 325 feet of red carpet -- longer than a football field -- will be utilized; the ballroom will house 8,000 square feet of blue carpet and include an LED fixture with 5,000 blue bulbs; 9,000 champagne glasses will be waiting to quench the thirst of the attendees.
