Bathroom overflow causes minor flood at the Oscars

Seth MacFarlane's inappropriate humor wasn't the only thing overflowing during Sunday night's Oscars.

According to the New York Post an apparent overflow in the women's bathroom caused a minor flood on the second floor of the Dolby Theatre less than 45 minutes before the Oscars broadcast began.

A small group of workers was rushed in to the theatre to tackle the mini-flood that restricted access to the second floor of the building, The LA Times reported.

Employees used two home-sized wet-vacs and a larger machine to clean up the flood while Academy Award guests were re-assigned to the first-floor bar for their drinking needs.
