Hollywood stars hit (wet) red carpet for Golden Globes
LOS ANGELES (AFP) - Hollywood stars took to the red carpet on Sunday for the Golden Globes, with a packed cast of A-list nominees vying for the first major honours of Tinseltown's fiercely-fought awards season.
The celebrity fashion parade got underway a couple of hours before the show itself - although only after workers mopped up water from what organisers called a "malfunction with a sprinkler" that flooded the red carpet.
Best actress nominee Amy Adams was among the early arrivals at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, which sought to make light of the near flooding disaster.
"As some of the biggest names in entertainment are scheduled to attend the Golden Globe Awards tonight, we wanted to give the carpet one last wash before it opened," the hotel said in a statement.
