Burst Pipe Brings A Dampener To The Golden Globes' Red Carpet

It’s one of the best and most important aspect of any awards show. It’s here that you can see who showed up, who and what people were wearing, who had a fashion hit or miss as well as hear the latest gossip straight from the horse’s mouth so to speak. However, last night’s Golden Globes red carpet almost didn’t happen as disaster struck early Sunday afternoon. Or else the stars might have had to take the Golden Pond to the Golden Globes. The trouble began when a pipe at the Beverly Hills Hotel burst and flooded the surrounding area. According to the Hollywood Reporter, “Around 12:20 p.m. PT, a lighting rig set off a fire sprinkler that sprayed water on various cameras and the red carpet a few hours before show time. The spill was attended to after approximately 15 minutes, with the Beverly Hills Fire Department using air blowers and wet vacuums to clean up the unsightly spill”. The resulting flooding cause the international press assembled to be moved out of the way as work commenced to try and dry the carpet out for the evening. Luckily for the worldwide masses, Ryan Seacrest was on hand to tweet updates of the clean up process: Though it was initially reported that the spill was from a sewage pipe and that there was a lovely odour in the air, this has been retracted and there was press along the red carpet reported no smell of sewage. While the carpet wasn’t completely dry by showtime, everyone adopted that old theatre adage, “the show must go on”, and the red carpet proceeded as normal. To find out all of last night’s winners and losers, check out our Golden Globes recap here.
