No wonder she wasn’t at the Golden Globes Sunday night.

Mariska Hargitay, who has won both a Golden Globe and an Emmy for her performance as Det. Olivia Benson on the hit series Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, has a partially collapsed lung, according the Associated Press.

Hargitay's spokesman said she will appear on all of this season's episodes but declined further comment.

A statement issued by Wolf Films, the production company of Law & Order creator Dick Wolf, said Hargitay's condition is improving.

"Mariska is feeling better. We are looking forward to her quick recovery and return to set."

She was recently nominated for a Golden Globe for a third time but lost out to True Blood’s Anna Paquin.
