Bad news for Hollywood's brightest stars: hours before Sunday's Golden Globes ceremony, a pipe burst outside the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif., flooding a portion of the red carpet.

"A pipe has appeared to totally bust and there is water gushing, literally everywhere in the position of where all of the international press -– everyone has moved out of the way," Catt Sadler on the E! network during the red carpet pre-show (via THR).

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association released a statement about the incident, noting a faulty sprinkler caused the issue (via Marlow Stern):

"We can confirm that there was a malfunction with a sprinkler near the red carpet. The situation was quickly resolved. Despite the incident the red carpet will open at its regularly scheduled time. As some of the biggest names in entertainment are scheduled to attend the Golden Globe Awards tonight, we wanted to give the carpet one last wash before it opened."

E! red carpet host Ryan Seacrest tweeted photos of the flood from his personal Twitter account:

NBC Los Angeles photographer Sean Browning tweeted this photo of the sprinkler break:
