Why Kyle and Jackie O were banned from the Golden Globes for FIVE years: Radio hosts reveal red carpet blow-up resulted in them being blacklisted
Radio hosts Kyle Sandilands and Jackie ‘O’ Henderson have revealed they were ‘dragged off the red carpet and banned’ from the Golden Globes several years ago.
The incident happened before the Sydney breakfast duo moved from 2Day FM to KIIS 106.5 in 2014, and resulted in a five-year ban.
The pair explained on The Kyle and Jackie O Show on Monday they had accidentally been allowed on to the red carpet at the start of the ceremony.

Despite only having media passes, one of the organisers on the night permitted them to walk with the celebrity nominees.
Kyle, 49, explained: ‘We were supposed to go to the media pit, but we looked that good that day that the woman goes, “Oh, come with me,” rushed us through a door, pushed us out and then all of a sudden we’re there next to Entertainment Tonight.
‘We’re on the red carpet. There’s Jennifer Aniston. Who else was there? There was everyone.’
Jackie, 46, recalled telling Kyle to ‘just run with it’ even though they had clearly entered the wrong area and were holding microphones.
But it didn’t take long for them to get caught out by ‘this little Jewish woman’ who was in charge of monitoring the red carpet.
Jackie added: ‘Boy, was she a bulldog. Jesus, did we get berated. I have never felt so small in all my life!’
Kyle said the diminutive woman had told them, ‘You’re banned! You’re banned forever!’
They were then escorted to the ‘worst part’ of the media area among the photographers, where the celebrities don’t venture.
This meant they didn’t get a single red carpet interview.
Despite this setback, Kyle said he was still glad someone at the Globes had, for a moment, thought he and Jackie were good looking enough to be Hollywood stars.
‘We were banned for five years,’ he added.
The Golden Globes will be held digitally this year due to the Covid-19 pandemic, broadcasting live from both coasts.
