A Guide to All the Silliness on the Golden Globes Red Carpet

This article is from the archive of our partner .

The Golden Globes are about a group of foreign press honoring the best in film and television: they are also about red carpet ridiculousness. Here we are compiling some tonight's most insane moments. We'll update as the night goes on. 

The Flood

We've already covered the leak that turned the red carpet into a sloppy mess—it is now being reported as a sprinkler mishap—one thing is certain: Ryan Seacrest was concerned. 

Meanwhile, our Joe Reid came up with the perfect joke. 

Jemima Kirke's Date

The man who arrived with Girls' Jemima Kirke clearly had his own interpretation of the formal wear necessary for a red carpet appearance. He's wearing a Nets hat and jeans. 

Elisabeth Moss' Middle Finger

Mad Men star and our new favorite person Elisabeth Moss did to E!'s mani cam—a camera to show off your manicure—what we all wish we could do to E!'s mani cam: she gave it the middle finger. The camera, unfortunately, cut away before the full expression of the gesture, and Giuliana Rancic had a brief heart attack. 

Ryan Seacrest's flubs

Seacrest, the red carpet's monstrous overlord, flubbed when talking to The Wolf of Wall Street stars. His verbal gymnastics made Jonah Hill ask: "Do you speak English?" Then, he forgot he had met co-star Margot Robbie, forcing her to remind him: "Ryan, we met in Argentina in the gym." He also may have spit on Bradley Cooper. 

Blanchett's Bono Quip

Cate Blanchett may be winning for the quippiest star of the night. When crossing paths with Bono on her way to be interviewed by Seacrest she said: "your first album was really good." Then there was some banter with Leonardo DiCaprio she said something to the extent of "save my ass," and then something else that we couldn't quite understand. Cast your guesses on Twitter. 

Diddy's Tutorial 

It's not quite red carpet, but via the Huffington Post's Christopher Rosen we've learned that over on Instagram Diddy is giving a tutorial on how to get ready for the Globes.

He writes: "For the next hour I'm giving a tutorial on how to get ready for the Golden Globes. These here are cucumber patches flown in from Milan. I know it looks crazy, but nobody said perfection was easy." 

E!'s Not So Fun Facts

Adam B. Vary at BuzzFeed noted that E!'s "fun facts" aren't really fun. For instance, when Michael J. Fox was diagnosed with Parkinson's. 

Hence, a meme was born.

J-Law photobombed T-Swift's Seacrest interview

J-Law is still working on building her credentials as everyone's favorite person ever: she intruded on T-Swift's Seacrest interview. Lawrence then talked to Swift about texting her about the CMA's. During her own interview a likely very expensive piece of jewelry fell off of Lawrence. She's just like us! But not. 

Emma Thompson's Run

Emma Thompson running down the red carpet shoeless is the best.
