Elsewhere this evening, guests Ryan Seacrest and meteorologist Ginger Zee took to Twitter to share the moment rain leaked through to the red carpet ahead of the live ceremony.
Radio host Ryan also took to his Twitter page to comment on the The 92nd annual Academy Awards chaos.
Expressing his concerns, he said: “I can’t remember the last time it rained quite like this,” as he looked up at the roof.
“The rain is coming down on the top, they just had people get up on the lift and body press the water up so it ran down the side and into the alley here.”
He then panned the camera round to the ceremony’s crew, who were holding umbrellas.
