A little too bright and shiny — not to mention moist! Celebrities spent hours prepping for the 72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards, only to have their blowouts and expertly made-up faces ruined inside the sauna that was the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills on Sunday, Jan. 11.

Stars like Clive Owen, Julianna Margulies, Katherine Heigl, and Frances McDormand looked far from pleased with the steamy conditions inside the hotel's grand ballroom.

According to Vanity Fair, the air conditioning in the hotel was entirely shut down. In Beverly Hills, the temperatures were in the mid-'50s, drizzling with dreary rain, which lent itself to incredibly high humidity. This, it seems, was the reason why everyone appeared disheveled and rumpled.

Olive Kitteridge nominee McDormand was seen throughout the evening appearing ruffled and rather displeased to be at the star-studded event. At one point, cameras panned to the original Fargo actress using her program book as a makeshift fan as she rolled her eyes in discomfort.

Other celebrity audience members who looked svitzy inside the hotel included Oprah, whose eyeliner smudged several hours into the evening. A bearded Matthew McConaughey removed his suit jacket in an attempt to bear the rising temperatures, and was seen wiping the sides of his face at one point.

Diane Kruger was hilariously spotted drinking from her mini funneled bottle of Moet, which she and her boyfriend Joshua Jackson brought and flaunted on the red carpet. (It turns out the alcohol came in handy inside the auditorium!)

Then, there were the presenters, many of them noticeably uncomfortable and piqued under the stage lights. State of Affairs actress Heigl and David Duchovny presented the Best Actor in a TV Series – Drama Golden Globe to Kevin Spacey, and both glittered with tiny beads of perspiration lining their skin.

Margulies and Don Cheadle handed George Clooney his lifetime achievement award, but the Good Wife star wasn't sweating over her former ER love interest. The actress' forehead flashed brightly against the beaming stage lights as her flawless face was visibly flushed.

Owen also took to the stage in a sharp black velvet tux, but rather than appearing handsome and dapper as he typically does, he looked sopping wet and uncomfortable. See where all the celebs let loose after the uncomfortable show.
