While the Oscar red carpet is prepped and ready for stars to descend onto Hollywood Boulevard tonight, earlier today it looked like a complete disaster.
Los Angeles was worried about the impending rain earlier this week ahead of the 86th Academy Awards tonight.

There were plenty of umbrellas and Oscar statuettes were wrapped in plastic.
A lot of the carpet was covered in plastic, too.
Workers had to furiously squeegee water off of it.
… or vacuuming the water up.

… the carpet is good to go …
… and the stars are on their way.
