If you’ve been following the Golden Globes coverage on Twitter, you may have seen that water flooded the red carpet outside of the Beverly Hilton, where the show takes place tonight.

TODAY Entertainment said cleaning crews were working diligently to clean up the mess, caused by a sprinkler that was triggered by a broadcast light. E! News’ Kristin Dos Santos posted that a fifth of the red carpet was ruined.

By the looks of things, a lot of the mess has been mopped up.
