Hours before the stars were set to hit the red carpet outside the Dolby Theatre and before host Jimmy Kimmel took the stage, there was a malfunction during rehearsal.

According to TMZ, a life-sized prop apparently topped over on stage during rehearsal. No one was injured and Kimmel was not on stage, according to TMZ's report.

The Academy reportedly told TMZ that the prop was repaired prior to the start of the show.
