Top 10 Golden Globes OMG Moments!

15 Jan 2013

From Scarlett Johansson being groped to Ricky Gervais' acid tongue, we give you the shock and awe moments from the Golden Globes down the years

Scarlett Johansson
Peering down Teri Hatcher’s dress wasn’t enough for weird designer Isaac Mizrahi. He went one step further and groped Scarlett on the red carpet, leaving even Ryan Seacrest speechless – a first for the E! host!

Renée Zellweger
Renée flushed when her name was called for her best actress win, but not with winners’ surprise. The actress was in the bathroom when she won the gong for Nurse Betty, leaving an awkward silence until she rushed to the stage – thankfully without toilet paper stuck to her shoe.

Ricky Gervais
2010, ’11 & ‘12

As the show’s host, no one was safe from the comedian’s acid tongue. Calling Bruce Willis “Ashton Kutcher’s dad” as well as gags about Mel Gibson and the SATC ladies, his reign as presenter came to a sticky end when he turned his humour on his bosses at NBC. Error!

Jack Nicholson
Most winners make a blubbering acceptance speech, but Jack decided to faux moon the audience when he was awarded the Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award.  Strange behaviour, but the actor holds the record for the most Golden Globes, after winning six throughout his career!

Elizabeth Taylor
An icon she may have been, but we cringed when Elizabeth slurred her way through presenting an award with Dick Clark. Reading the nominees in a high-pitched voice, she had difficulty with the teleprompter and announced, “And the winner is… it’s flashing ‘envelope’.” Brilliant!

Mickey Rourke
Mickey took a different route during his acceptance speech for The Wrestler, giving a shout out to his dogs. The hard-man actor tearfully thanked his four chihuahuas and credited them for getting him through the hard times saying, “sometimes when a man’s alone, all you got is your dogs.” Aww!

Lara Flynn Boyle
Like Bjork’s infamous Oscar’s swan dress, the actress’s pink tutu disaster will go down in Globes history. The ballerina outfit with lace-up heels got the actress plenty of attention, but for all the wrong reasons.

1997 & 2012
The Queen of Pop shockingly has two Globes, one for Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy for Evita, and another for Best Original Song for W.E. Most surprised by the Material Girl’s second victory was Elton John, who’d said Madge didn’t have “a chance in hell” of winning!

Kate Winslet
Shocked at winning the best actress gong for Revolutionary Road, Kate began her speech by apologising to her fellow nominees. The problem was, she couldn’t remember Angelina Jolie, shrieking, “Oh God, who’s the other one?” The world cringed through that awkward moment.

Sacha Baron Cohen
Always creating controversy as Ali G and Borat, Sacha shocked when he claimed Victoria Beckham hadn’t eaten for three weeks due to the recession. He also mocked Madonna’s divorce saying, “Madonna has had to get rid of one of her personal assistants. Our heart goes out to you, Guy Ritchie.” Ouch!
