The red carpet will open as planned ahead of the evening’s awards show. “We can confirm that there was a malfunction with a sprinkler near the red carpet,” said Dick Clark Productions. “The situation was quickly resolved. Despite the incident the red carpet will open at its regularly scheduled time. We heard some of the biggest names in entertainment were coming to The Golden Globe Awards tonight and we wanted to give the carpet one last wash before it opened.”
