To get ready for the Golden Globe Awards, one 66-year-old Hollywood icon had a little work done.
The venerable Globe statuettes have undergone minor changes to improve their "detail and symmetry" and to firm up the frame "so they will be more durable in transit," says Jorge Camara, president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which sponsors the awards.
The trophy also has a new marble base and an improved, velvet-lined, leather-bound carrying case.

If the Golden Globes run "a little bit longer" this Sunday, you can blame The Jonas Brothers. Music's hottest trio has been added as presenters for the telecast, along with Hayden Panettiere and Martin Scorsese.
They'll join stars like Glenn Close, Jennifer Lopez, Cameron Diaz and Blake Lively on the show, presenting golden orbs to legends such as Steven Spielberg, who will receive the Cecil B. DeMille award for his "outstanding contribution to the entertainment field."
The 66th annual show airs live on NBC at 8 p.m. from The Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills.

Anne Hathaway's best actress Golden Globe nomination for the drama Rachel Getting Married could not have come at a better time.
After a rocky year – marked by her breakup with ex-boyfriend Raffaello Follieri and his subsequent guilty plea on money laundering and fraud charges – Hathaway says the recognition is not just validation of her acting ability, it's helped her take stock of what's important in her life.
"This is the year that I realized how profoundly I am loved and supported," Hathaway, 26, tells PEOPLE. "And [I] realized that in order for a human being to be a successful human being, they must have deep profound wonderful committed relationships in their lives with their friends, with their family, with a lot of different people."

Who needs a limo: Miley Cyrus may now drive herself to the Golden Globe Awards (with a licensed adult).
The 16-year-old Hannah Montana star got her learner's permit on Wednesday, and less than 24 hours later woke up at 5:30 a.m. Thursday to texts telling her she nabbed a Globe nomination for Best Original Song for "I Thought I Lost You," the theme song for her movie Bolt.
"I'm so stoked! I never expected to get nominated," Cyrus tells PEOPLE. "I can't believe I'm on the same list as Clint Eastwood, Beyoncé, Bruce Springsteen and everyone else."

The Golden Globe nominations are in – and many of the new nominees are expressing their excitement, gratitude and surprise.
Some stars, like first-time nominee Kevin Connolly, were woken up by the news at 5.a.m. L.A. time. The elated Entourage actor wasn't exactly dressed for the occasion. "I'm pacing around on my cordless phone in my underwear," he told PEOPLE.
Brooke Shields, who rose early to help announce the nominations, was thrilled for friend Tom Cruise, who nabbed a Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy or Musical nod for his nearly-unrecognizable turn as a fat, balding movie executive in Tropic Thunder. "I'm so glad for him!" Shields told PEOPLE. "I think it's ironic, all the work that he does [and] that's what he gets nominated for. I think he's done tremendous work so I think he's probably chuckling about it too."

Both Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt were among those nominated Thursday morning for Golden Globes, part of Hollywood's pre-Oscar awards' season frenzy now underway.
