ABC party organisers sent a car to pick Carey up and drive the 33 year old to her destination.

Johnny Depp made a surprise appearance at the London Film Festival on Saturday (19Oct13) to honour his pal Sir Christopher Lee with a prestigious British Film Institute (BFI) Fellowship. The Lord of the Rings villain, also known for his role as Count Dracula in the popular Hammer Horror films, fought back tears as he was presented with the career accolade by Depp, who branded the 91 year old "a national treasure" and "a genuine artist", and revealed that working with Lee on Sleepy Hollow, Dark Shadows and his Charlie and the Chocolate Factory remake was "a childhood dream come true".
The veteran actor became emotional as he stepped up to the podium, telling Depp, "I didn't know you were going to be here. I must try and pull myself together."
He then returned the Hollywood hunk's compliments by referring to him as one of the few younger actors "who is truly a star".
Lee wasn't the only big winner at the London prizegiving - Pawel Pawlikowski was awarded Best Film for Holocaust drama Ida, while screenwriter Jonathan Asser was named Best British Newcomer for his work on prison film Starred Up.
The awards ceremony took place on the eve of the London Film Festival's final day - the 12-day event wrapped on Sunday (20Oct13) with the premiere of Tom Hanks' Saving Mr. Banks, which tells the back story of Mary Poppins.

Actresses-turned-designers Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen's obsession with fashion began with re-structuring their costumes on the set of U.S. sitcom Full House. The 27-year-old twins rose to fame in their breakout role as Michelle Tanner on the popular TV programme, but have since turned away from life in Hollywood in favour of becoming leading designers in the fashion world.
In an interview with style site Net-a-Porter.com's magazine The Edit, the sisters reveal their love for clothes was ignited on the very show that made them famous, as they had to re-imagine their costumes by designers like Chanel and Marc Jacobs, in order to fit their smaller frames.
Ashley reveals, "On Full House we would be in six-hour fittings three times a week, because we had to wear 12 different outfits."
Mary-Kate adds, "We were designing clothes for ourselves as we were so petite, so I think that is when we became obsessed with fit, and now the obsession has become a profession."
In 2006, the Olsens created a high-fashion line called The Row, which has been critically acclaimed by style experts around the world.
A.C.O.D. reunites funny guy Adam Scott with current Parks & Rec co-star Amy Poehler and Party Down's Jane Lynch to create a sarcastic and realistic rom-com dealing with this generation's detached views of marriage and divorce.The Film ArcadeCarter (Scott) is in his thirties when he realizes that what he thought had been therapy post his parent's separation was actually an author penning a book about children of divorce. Shenanigans ensue and eventually another chronicle of the same type is released about the kid-subjects as they enter their adult lives. Per usual, the film ends with a wedding and everyone's happy (ish.) The real question is: just how true does this hold to those who actually are the offspring of divorced parents? Not every situation is going to be as extreme as the one portrayed in A.C.O.D.—with Carter's parents virtually ruining his childhood—but his issues are somewhat universal to youngsters who witnessed their parent's marriage crumbling.Relationship-wise, Carter is hesitant to enter into a true commitment with his current beau (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) and this is attributed to the wayward one that was held between his parents Hugh (Richard Jenkins) and Melissa (Catherine O'Hara).When problems arise and his mother and father, who were once estranged from each other, begin a sexual relationship again, Carter runs away rather than dealing with it. This can also be looked at as a manifestation of his desire to run from any sort of confrontation because of the intense arguments he witnessed as a child.Most situations like Carter's don't end with everyone coming together happily and gracefully, but A.C.O.D. definitely resonates with those actual adult children of divorce.
