    ‘Red Carpet” shows before an awards ceremony are the most sickening examples of television as we know it today. It’s all kiss-a$s. “Who are you wearing?” Who gives a flying-you-know-what? I’d be so embarrassed, I’d find some back door to enter the building. :-/

  • Emmanual

    Any actor or actress who would rather “go through a back door” instead of promoting a project on the red carpet wouldn’t be working in Hollywood very long.

  • Erika

    I watched and am not ashamed. I really like the whole E! red carpet team.

  • John K.

    @Erika I did too. Nothing wrong with watching what makes you happy.
