Photographers full names and vile language comments will be deleted.
Keep it clean folks!
One bad apple can spoil the whole bunch... More about that after the details.
They built a tent that covered the entire red carpet arrival area. Unfortunately, THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE HAD ISSUED A HEAT ADVISORY FOR NEW YORK CITY. Mid 90's and high humidity. In NYC, that's deadly. All that heat was trapped inside the tent...then add 50+ photographers...ouch.
Initially, there was not enough space allocated for B-List shooters. PR placed A-Listers in front row spots, followed by B-listers. Space was low by the time half the list was called. More space was finally opened up, but photogs ran 3 rows deep throughout the line. Arrival area was in the shape of a reversed "L", followed by video.
......at 11:25am there were 23 people on the list. Over 60 by the event start.....
Local NY riff-raff show up, then Will Ferrell...he had fun posing way too close to the photogs....
Ta-Da! Ms. Kidman arrives.
Most of the shooters that shot her on Letterman had just arrives and were flooding the press pit towards the beginning. This is where opinions about the arrival will vary.....
If you were in the front crew....you got screwed. After posing for the first crew, she headed towards the larger mass of photographers. It was at this time the one photographer decided to "Boo" her, accusing her of not posing. Kidman then came over to that photographer and pointed at him saying " You are the rudest person...", followed by "It's Over For You!" and she walked away. This caused all the photographers to go crazy, yelling and screaming for attention. Nicole was visibly shook up by the situation, as it was hard to get a smile out of her afterwards....One bad apple....
Anyone else want to take it from here....?
