Looks like we weren't the only ones who needed a plunger.

As we were busy taking in all of the glitz, glamour and wardrobe malfunctions at the 2013 Academy Awards, behind the scenes there was a pretty stinky situation going down. Or, more appropriately...coming up.

According to TMZ, the Dolby Theatre lobby in Los Angeles flooded due to a leak in the bathroom. The incident happened just minutes before the show was about to start and quickly made its way to the internet, thanks to Twitpics taken of the staff cleaning up the mess with brooms and vacuums. Entertainment Weekly's Lynette Rice posted a photo on Twitter and wrote "Flood at the Oscars! Great Day to be a star."

And while the LA City Fire department couldn't confirm what caused the leak, there are suggestions that it was due to a toilet. Perhaps a Lorraine Schwartz jewel or some sequin beads clogged the loo? Or could it have been due to, well, let's just say a nervous stomach? Either way we know it wasn't "Argo" producer Grant Heslov, who told TMZ, he personally did not have any bathroom problems.

But if you ever find yourself in a similar predicament, you can a contact a professional plumber to help you, or follow the directions in Howcast's video on how to fix a clogged toilet. We've also compiled a list of ways to clean up a home after a flood has occurred.

Click through our slideshow to see photos of those whose night could not be ruined by some nasty toilet water. And head over to TMZ for more information.
