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.
