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.

Will & Grace as a whole wasn't nominated for any Golden Globes this year, and the cast didn't present any awards. Giuliana either didn't know that or forgot, and Debra had to awkwardly correct her on it.

Yeah, apparently The Mooch was there. We're not entirely sure why, but here's the photo evidence:


When the hosts tried to give flu shots to everyone in the audience.

Instead of, say, pizza, Sandra and Andy decided to give all the stars in the audience free flu shots. Needless to sayit didn't go over well. I mean, needles? On camera? No thanks.

When Taylor Swift went in for the cheek kiss and Lady Gaga went in for the hug.

Basically, Taylor was presenting the award for Lady Gaga's song "Shallow," and when Gaga got onstage, she went in for a hug and Taylor went in for the double cheek kiss. You can watch the awkward moment in this Twitter video.

When Maya Rudolph and Amy Poehler poked fun at that Emmy's proposal.

Yeah, they faked a proposal on the stage to lightly mock the proposal that went down at the Emmys. It was funny but also a tad uncomfortable:

When Lady Gaga lost to Glenn Close. 

Lady Gaga was heavily favored to win in the Best Actress - Drama category. You can tell by the fact that this was Glenn's face when she won:
