Golden Globes: The Most Awkward Moments Through The Years!

no title

The Golden Globes have been an institution in Hollywood for just about FOREVER!

Which means that for all the AH-mazing talent that is honored each year, there are just as many SUPER awkward moments from the show!

Ch-ch-check out seven of the most awkward moments of all time (below)!

During the first EVER televised showing of the Golden Globes back in 1958, things ran VERY differently. So differently, in fact, that the presenters of the show were the journalists from the Hollywood Foreign Press reading the winners.

Well, the Rat Pack, which included Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., and Frank Sinatra, grew so bored with the show that they rushed the stage and took over the hosting duties! We bet there were A LOT of people with awkward tingles in that audience! LOL!

Next up, we’ve got one from a more recent show, in 2013, when the iconic actress Jodie Foster came out in her speech. She was brave and courageous, but she rambled on for a very long time without ever actually confirming she really WAS gay!

Poor Natalie Portman was all hopped up on hormones during this speech! When she won for her role in Black Swan, the actress was SUPER pregnant which led to her telling the world that sex leads to a baby (duh), and she laughed so oddly that, well, we’ll let you watch for yourself.

Back in 1998 Christine Lahti won the award for Best Actress in a TV Series – Drama but she was in the bathroom when her name was called! AWKWARD. This lead to Michael J. Fox and Robin Williams trying to waste time — super uncomfortable for everyone.

Ricky Gervais has made A LOT of people feel awkward. But nobody more than Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp when he called them out for their terrible film The Tourist being nominated!

Looks like poor Angie can’t escape the awkwardness because she was the unwilling target of another moment at the hands of Kate Winslet! She thanked every other nominee — except Angelina! Ouch.

Finally, the most awkward moment, so far, has to be when Elizabeth Taylor drank a little TOO much in 2001. She was no ‘Emma Thompson throwing her shoes drunk,’ instead, she ALMOST announced the winner of her category before even saying who was nominated! YIKES.

Do YOU agree with us? Which of these do YOU think was the most awkward?
