The 7 Most Awkward Moments at the 2019 Golden Globes

From the opening monologue to Maya Rudolph and Amy Poehler's fake proposal.

When you put a ton of celebrities in one room and give them loads of Moët champagne, there are bound to be hilarious (and awkward) moments. This year's Golden Globes were no exception. From an awkward red carpet interview to the flu shot, here are the most cringe-worthy moments of the entire show.

Debra Messing correcting Giuliana Rancic during their red carpet interview.
