One VIP guest came to the Golden Globes nearly naked and boldly sat by the door as though nothing was amiss.

Salem, a canine expert at sniffing out explosives, just wore his regular work vest to the black-tie affair at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, where Lena Dunham, Felicity Huffman and John Legend were among the early arrivals.

Salem's handler said this is the dog's fifth Golden Globes ceremony.

"But he's been nominated twice," she joked.
