8 Most Awkward Red Carpet Moments
There is always so much buzz around red carpet events, not only for the celebrity sightings, but because anything can happen! This is especially true at award shows like the Oscars, Emmy Awards or the Golden Globes when the whole world is watching. One of the best and hardest jobs for a reporter is to work a live event like the red carpet, because it requires a lot of improvisation and thinking-on-the-fly, which caters to a lot of really embarrassing moments. The same goes for celebrities who are under the microscope of a thousand cameras. Some of the biggest award shows are just around the corner, so we’ve compiled a list of the most recent awkward red carpet moments!
8. Amy Schumer Pranks Kimye
Amy Schumer pulled off the best red carpet prank on reality star Kim Kardashian and singer Kanye West at the TIME 100 Gala last spring. She pretended to trip and fall right in front of this superstar couple while they were getting their photograph taken. The best part of it all? Kim and Kanye were so awkward about the whole thing. They pretended like it didn’t happen, stepped over Amy Schumer and walked away. The comedian made an attempt to steal the spotlight away from these stars who are known to be media-hoggers. Mission accomplished, Amy!
7. Too Hot to Handle
This past year, the red carpet at the Emmy Awards got incredibly uncomfortable when temperatures reached almost 100 degrees in downtown Los Angeles. Olivia Culpo, (best known as Nick Jonas’ ex-girlfriend) covered the red carpet with Giuliana Rancic and nearly passed out from the heat. As soon as cameras cut away from the Miss USA 2012, she fell down to the ground. Medics tended to her, and she ended up being okay. She blamed the whole incident on the intense heat.
