Amy Adams with a gown and a publicist

That gown! Actress Amy Adams goes full movie star on the red carpet at the 68th Annual Golden Globe Awards. This was at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California on January 16, 2011. Amy Adams was nominated as best supporting actress that year for The Fighter, but lost out to her co-star in the same film, Melissa Leo.

With all due respect to the fabulous Amy Adams, our attention is grabbed here by the woman behind her in the more workmanlike gray dress: the one with the name badge reading PUBLICIST. She carries the tools of the LA publicist's trade: phone, sunglasses, and bottled water. Is this *Amy Adams's* publicist, scooting (a little late) out of frame for the photos? Is she carrying a bottle of water *for* Amy Adams? (That's good client service!) Or is she just passing through on her way to meet up with some lesser star she represents? Well, we'll never know. But it takes a lot of people behind the scenes to keep the Hollywood machine humming.
