Golden Globe Awards 2016 red carpet heats up

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. --The limousines, sport-utility vehicles, sedans and ride-sharing services are creating a Golden Globes traffic jam.

Alan Cumming, Patrick Stewart, Michael Shannon, Bernadette Peters and the cast of Amazon's "Transparent" were among the first celebs to arrive on a red-carpet-covered driveway Sunday afternoon.

Sam Smith was greeted by screams when he opened his passenger-side door directly in front of a bleacher populated with fans.

While most stars made a beeline to the camera crews and photographers waiting outside the Beverly Hilton, Jamie Lee Curtis stopped to wave and blow kisses to the excited crowd.

"Thank you!" she screamed.

When a fan recognized actor and screenwriter Danny Strong, the "Empire" co-creator paused to acknowledge the greeting.

"You're the one person who knew my name," he shouted. "I love you!"

Jason Schwartzman arrived in the most stylish ride, emerging from a vintage limo.

In the bleachers, a group of about 40 fans of the TV series "Outlander" gathered -- a few in costume -- to catch a glimpse and root for the cast and crew of the Starz series.

"We apologize in advance if we're loud and obnoxious," said Leona Barad told to the rest of the crowd in the bleachers.

Barad coordinated with dozens of other "Outlander" fans on Facebook for the group to sit among the audience overlooking the awards show entrance. When cameras from E! panned across the crowd, they screamed "OUTLANDER!" in unison.
