Overcast skies parted to let the sun shine on the Golden Globe Awards red carpet moments before the stars started arriving for Sunday's telecast.

Although there wasn't a threat of rain for the awards extravaganza, that didn't keep some of the red carpet from getting drenched when a lighting rig set off a fire sprinkler, soaking on section of the carpet a few hours before show time.

A video posted on the Los Angeles Fox affiliate (Channel 11) Instagram account showed the sprinkler dousing an area that crews later used wet dry vacuums to clean up. The incident happened a couple hours before the first celebrities set foot on the carpet.
