The Golden Globes red carpet had a pretty big "oops" a couple hours before the ceremony when a lighting rig set off a fire sprinkler, which drenched the carpet and some cameras, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Thanks to the Beverly Hills Fire Department's air blowers and wet vacuums, the flood (it had earlier been described as "water gushing, literally everywhere") was mostly cleaned up. We don't have pictures (Ryan Seacrest does), but click through the gallery for highlights from the red carpet arrivals.
