Millie Bobby Brown Didn’t Do The Red Carpet With Her Co-Stars And People Are Pissed

Literally everyone: "WHERE IS MILLIE?"
The 75th Annual Hunger Games Golden Globe Awards were held in LA last night and everyone looked FABULOUS. The red carpet was a sea of black dresses and tuxes, all in solidarity with the Time's Up campaign. All your faves from film and TV were there, including your adopted children from Stranger Things. But something was... missing.
Literally anyone with a pair of eyes will have noticed that Millie Bobby Brown didn't walk the red carpet with the rest of her Stranger Things co-stars.
Sadie Sink, Noah Schnapp, Caleb McLaughlin, Gaten Matarazzo and ya boi Finn Wolfhard all walked down the carpet together. They did interviews together, had fun in the 360 GlamBot together and generally just had a great time... together.
But where was Millie? Was she late? Did she cancel? Did she get lost? Was she not going to do any press? Did the Demogorgon come back to collect some collateral on the damage she inflicted at the end of season two?
Nope. It was none of those things. Millie arrived at the Globes almost a full hour after the rest of the squad. She arrived alone and walked the carpet alone but fans of the show couldn't work out why.
In fact, many started calling her out for thinking she was "too important" to arrive with the rest of her cast.

I don't like that Millie Bobby Brown doesn't do the carpet with the rest of the Stranger Things cast. It is an ensemble piece and going alone creates a perceived separation, She should be able to hang out with the other kids and have laughs with them. #wyldedish— Kimmy (@wyldek) January 8, 2018
Is Millie Bobby Brown too good to show up ever with the rest of her cast mates? Just wondering— fuck kyle (@TimmyElioKyle) January 7, 2018
millie bobby brown is a cute girl but why does she keep separating herself from the rest of the cast as if she's more important .— . (@acourtofrhysand) January 7, 2018
Why they have to treat Millie Bobby Brown differently from the rest of the cast? they're all beautiful, talented and worthy at the same level #GoldenGlobes— Marti (@dylanoanchor) January 8, 2018
But before we start getting TOO riled up at Millie... it's important to remember that Millie doesn't decide what time she shows up, her management does. In case you didn't know, the red carpet is FULL of politics. By holding Millie from walking the carpet until her co-stars were off it meant that all talk, eyes and cameras would be on her.
Let's face it, Millie is the show's stand out star... she's huge in her own right even though she's part of an equally brilliant ensemble cast. Adding her to the group would have probably meant that the others would've been ignored by interviewers in favour of a quote from Millie and that's not fair. It's not either way, tbh.
It's a clever move from a PR perspective but fans are starting to point out that her management's decisions aren't making her look good at all.
I don't mean to throw shade at a child, but Millie bobby Brown isnt any more special than her co-stars, her people are doing her no favors insisting she walks alone. #GoldenGlobes— Pull me out the oven, I'm done. (@OhsnapItsJenni) January 8, 2018
APPARENTLY MILLIE'S MANAGEMENT WON'T ALLOW HER TO BE ON THE RED CARPET WITH THE REST OF THE CAST. WHAT KIND OF BULLSHIT-— des (@80SREDDlE) January 8, 2018
i wish millie bobby brown's team would let her be a 13 year old girl and let her join her cast at the red carpet.— ray shabir (@rayshabir) January 8, 2018

So yeah, it's a real shame that our favourite teens didn't get to experience the whole evening together but it's not Millie's fault at all. And they all got to sit together at their own table for the entire show and they were also spotted at the Netflix after-party together anyway.
