These Memes Were the Real Winners of Last Night's Golden Globe Awards

The year 2019 may just have founds its first meme in the "Fiji Water Girl", who has created ripples on the internet by photobombing nearly every red carpet shot at the Golden Globe awards ceremony held on Sunday. On Sunday, as stars posed for photo opportunities and interviews alike, Kelleth Cuthbert (aka, the Fiji Water girl) had a different agenda - to photobomb as many celebrities as possible in the name of genius advertising.

Talking to CNet, she said, "I've been photobombing since I was a kid".

She added: 'Dakota Fanning and Luke Evans for allowing me the space to have my best angle'.

"I loved the Jim Carrey one", she shared. News tracked down the model and even awarded her "Best Supporting Actress On A Red Carpet" to reward her for her plucky ploy at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, California.

And when we looked into the future and saw miss Fiji at the top of her game.

Doing the rounds online, the star has had a tongue-in-cheek reaction to the interest in her shots.

Jeremy Hunka of Union Gospel Mission in Vancouver said the numerous deaths, five of which took place in B.C., are unacceptable. On New Year's Eve, a 34-year-old man was discovered lodged in a clothing bin in West Vancouver by an off-duty doctor.

Later on, the brand also chose to leverage on the hype and tweeted out a meme of its own featuring its Fiji Water model.

"No one's really going to be looking at me", she remembers telling herself. But, who is the Fiji water girl? "As the official water sponsor of the Golden Globes, FIJI Water, along with its FIJI Brand Ambassadors, hydrated guests on the red carpet and during the star-studded show".

Kelleth Cuthbert is having a pretty good week. Unsurprisingly, Cuthbert is a model, who has worked for agencies across North America, including Wilhelmina in Los Angeles and Chicago, Plutino in Toronto, Heffner in Seattle and Donna Baldwin in Denver.

According to Time, FIJI Water has served as the "official water brand" for the Golden Globes since 2015.

She continued, "My husband is laughing very hard about all of this". She remembers the moment, but notes that like all her photobombs, it went by "super fast".

She told Glamour that she found the whole experience hilarious, albeit being confused and overwhelmed with the attention.
