This year’s Emmys red carpet is literally hot.

With temperatures in Los Angeles reaching almost 90 degrees, many attending the 68th annual Emmy Awards were commenting on the heat.

“It’s hot out here & so are my co-hosts…” Extra host Mario Lopez tweeted on Sunday, tagging Charissa Thompson and Tracey Edmonds.

“We’re at the #emmys and it’s hot as hell. Next year I’m wearing a thong,” added The Insider co-host Louis Aguirre.

Marcia Clark, who was a guest of People v. O.J. Simpson star Sarah Paulson at this year’s ceremony, joked it was “120 degrees” outside.”

Check out some tweets from the red carpet below. The Emmys kickoff at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
