The 7 Most Awkward Moments at the Golden Globes

The Golden Globes are fun, but in a three-hour live show full of celebs you can expect a few awkward moments

As everyone knows, the Golden Globes are like the Academy Awards' cooler, younger cousin. 

There's always plenty of food and alcohol to loosen up the stars and the hosts, Tina & Amy, are about as perfect a pairing since PB&J. Actually scratch that, they blow PB&J out of the water. All of these elements combine to make the GGs just a little bit more relaxed, or dare we say "cooler," than other awards shows. 

However all the alcohol and perfectly timed Tina/Amy jokes in the world couldn't stop the show from having its share of awkward moments, and have them it did. Whether it was the speeches that made us spit out our cocktail or the long walks to the stage, there were more than a few moments that gave us secondhand embarrassment. Here are some of the worst:


1.) A (possibly intoxicated?) Diddy giving Bono a hug after U2 won:

And Bono was having none of it. That face. That cringe. Yikes.


2.) The winners taking the long, convoluted walk to the stage:

This, give or take, is what everyone walking to the stage looked like last night: 

Typical LA traffic. Who organized this venue?


3.) Jacqueline Bisset's long, confusing, slightly explicit speech:

In case you missed it...

Maybe she was just too shocked for words? And also too shocked to hear the music creeping up? We don't know, but on the 1-10 uncomfortable scale, it was a nine.



4.) Julia Louise-Dreyfus mid-hot dog:

Oh who are we kidding, we loved it. And we love her. And her jokes with Tina and Amy were fantastic. But scarfing down a fully-loaded hot dog on camera is never a good idea.



5.) This failed attempt at giving Matthew McConaughey a congratulatory handshake after he won best actor for Dallas Buyers Club:

We know that feeling. Ouch.


6.) This "fun fact" that E! posted during the preshow:

Um. Who is fact checking E!'s "fun facts"? 



7.) And, of course, the most cringe-worthy moment of all time: Diane Keaton singing while accepting the Cecil B. DeMille award on behalf of Woody Allen:

While the sentiment was sweet, the delivery was just one weird part of an even weirder speech. One thing is for sure: Diane gave Jodie Foster's high-octane awkward speech from last year's Globes a run for its money.
