Awards season is well underway, the Golden Globes taking place this Sunday. Security at the event will be notably large, with law-enforcement agencies and private services both in attendance. 

According to reports, the FBI, Los Angeles County Sheriff’s and Beverly Hills Police Department will be working with numerous guards booked by the organisers. 

“This is obviously a high-profile event and there’s a tremendous amount of security put into this,” a spokesperson for Beverly Hills PD, Lt. Lincoln Hoshino, told Variety.

Taking place at the Beverly Hilton, numerous famous actors will be attending, the likes of Natalie Portman, Casey Affleck, and Mahershala Ali all expected to pick up awards. Late night host Jimmy Fallon will be hosting

As with all these Hollywood-type events, after-parties will be taking place across Beverly Hills: The Hilton has apparently created a pre-planned transportation system for guests. 

“I know that we’re using a lot of technology at the event,” officer Hoshino said when asked whether guards with body armour could be expected. “We consider this a large-scale event, and there’s going to be a multi-agency response.”

Also up for awards are Andrew Garfield for his turn in Hacksaw Ridge, Amy Adams for Arrival, and seven-time Globe winner Meryl Streep for Florence Foster Jenkins. Read the full list of nominations here.
