"It was a mosh pit. The security guy got right in front of everyone and stretched out his arms to prevent anyone from moving and nearly body checked Sarah Paulson to yell, ‘Carpet’s closed!’ It was unnecessarily aggressive. No one was trying to be rude or out of line," one source told the outlet.

A-list star Angelina Jolie and her daughter, Vivienne, 15, reportedly had to wait "a half hour in the heat in her gown, while others waited an hour."

"Someone was heard saying it felt like they were on the Titanic. Publicists were begging people to let women and children go first," the insider continued.

Another source called the red carpet "a full blown disaster."

Page Six also reports members of the press were given a "'nominees pack' which misidentified a best actress in a musical nominee — Lempikca star Eden Espinosa — with an image of Shoshanna Bean from Hairspray in 2002."
