An apparent sewage pipe broke and spilled water on the rec carpet of the Golden Globes award show in California.

The Hollywood Reporter said the “lights set off an alarm system that sprayed black sewage and water on various cameras and the red carpet.”

“We’re experiencing a lot of drama right now down here on the red carpet. A pipe has appeared to totally bust and there is water gushing literally everywhere, in the position where all of the international press is stationed. Everyone has moved out of the way. As you can see they are pulling up the red carpet as we speak right now. It is not stopping! They cannot get this water under control!” said Catt Sadler of E!, according to The Wire.

The 71st annual Golden Globe Awards is being held in Beverly Hills.
