Time to trade out those Manolos for wellies: A portion of the Golden Globes red carpet has been flooded after by a water pipe burst.
Dozens of video journalists could’ve found themselves muddling through the 5,000 gallons of water sprung from a sprinkler system that activated when an HMI light was positioned too close to a heat sensor, but fortunately immediate attention to the dilemma had the mishap cleaned up quickly.
“We can confirm that there was a malfunction with a sprinkler near the red carpet,” said Irine Spivak, public relations manager for The Beverly Hilton. “The situation was quickly resolved. …As some of the biggest names in entertainment are scheduled to attend Golden Globe Awards tonight, we wanted to give the carpet one last wash before it opened.”
The Golden Globes red carpet was expected to open on time.
