    The Golden Globes 2019 took place last week, kicking off award season with a bang.

    But it wasn’t Lady Gaga’s ‘100 people’ joke or Emma Stone’s public apology that caused the most buzz, instead it was the Fiji water girl.

    That’s right. A star was born, and her name is Kelleth Cuthbert.

    As people tuned into the red carpet footage of the event before the ceremony, they noticed a woman holding a tray of FIJI water smiling at the cameras in the background. They noticed because she managed to get herself in essentially every shot.

    Her photobombing then went viral, with E! News getting the ball rolling, posting a series of her photobombs to Twitter, alongside the caption, ‘This woman holding FIJI water at the Golden Globes truly came to SERVE.’

    ‘My main aspiration in life right now is to be the fiji water girl at the golden globes,’ one fan wrote, while another posted: ‘Please take a second to recognise the true hero of the Golden Globes red carpet: the Fiji water girl.’

    There was one A-lister however who wasn’t as thrilled by the Fiji water girl’s presence, and even less thrilled that she herself had fallen victim to one of her photobombs.

    The celebrity in question? Jamie Lee Curtis.

    ‘So, my husband, who doesn’t look at a lot of show business news sites, just mentioned that I was on the CNN website,’ the 60-year-old actress posted to social media. ‘I specifically moved away from the blatant promotions by Fiji and Moet where young women with their trays filled with their wares stood near a designated camera.’

    She continued: ’I knew why there was a photographer poised there and I moved away as I said out loud that I didn’t want to be doing advertising for either. Clearly this angle shows that I moved from her being behind me and yet from the side it still happens. The sponsors of events need to get permission from people when they get them to take their picture next to products.’

    Well, that’s that.
