7 Awkward Moments You May Have Missed at the Golden Globes
The Golden Globes were filled with plenty of heartwarming and truly exciting moments, but we all know what people remember long after the final award is given — the awkward, the funny, and the viral.
Sunday’s 2019 awards were no exception, as many viewers picked up on some of the evening’s most hilarious (and uncomfortable) fare.
Patricia Arquette Doesn’t Have Time for Lady Gaga
— Ryan Schocket (@RyanSchocket) January 7, 2019
During Arquette‘s walk to the stage to accept her award for her performance in Escape at Dannemora, Lady Gaga appeared to reach out for a handshake or acknowledgment only to receive a curt nod in response. The moment calls back to the 2016 ceremony where Gaga won for American Horror Story: Hotel and pushed past a surprised Leonardo DiCaprio.
Rami Malek Forgot He Worked With Francia Raisa
During the red carpet, Bohemian Rhapsody star (and one of the night’s big winners) Malek reunited with his former co-star Raisa, who was serving as a correspondent. The grown-ish actress reminded Malek of their connection telling him, “Fourteen years ago, you were on a show called Over There. I was Sawa, your little sister.” The news nearly floored the actor who responded, “You’re kidding me!”

When Taylor Swift and Idris Elba presented Lady Gaga with the award for A Star Is Born‘s “Shallow,” Swift attempted to congratulate the songstress with a double cheek kiss, but only managed one before Gaga moved on.
Debra Messing and Giuliana Rancic Meet Again
Giuliana Rancic tells Debra Messing “oh you’re presenting tonight” Debra: “no no I’m not”. Giuliana again: “are all the cast here?” Debra: “No Will and Grace isn’t nominated…” some researcher for E! News defo just got the sack #GoldenGlobespic.twitter.com/LZdfYkydxv

Last year’s red carpet didn’t bode well for Rancic, who Messing called out along with the E! network for their gender pay disparity issues with former reporter Catt Sadler. This year, Rancic asked Messing if she was presenting and if the rest of the Will & Grace cast was in attendance. Messing told Rancic that the show wasn’t nominated, but didn’t share her own nomination.
Amy Poehler and Maya Rudolph’s Engagment

In what was meant to be spoof of the 2018 Emmys proposal, Rudolph proposed to her former SNL costar. The segment had the audience roaring, but for those unaware of the reference, the moment could be construed as strange. Plus, the original proposal was really sweet!
Black Panther‘s Ryan Coogler Was Unimpressed by Andy Samberg’s Joke
— Marcel Louis-Jacques (@Marcel_LJ) January 7, 2019
During the ceremony’s monologue, there were a few jokes that seemed to fall flat. One example was Andy Samberg‘s quip about hit Marvel film Black Panther, which included a reference to the real-life political party, the Black Panthers. Judging from director Ryan Coogler’s face, there wasn’t anything funny about the bit.
Michael Douglas’ Little Trip
As actor Michael Douglas made his way to the stage for his Kominsky Method win, he got a little over eager and tripped a bit. Thankfully, he recovered himself and was able to collect his award without issue.
