The 27 Most Embarrassing Celebrity Moments at Award Shows
The 27 Most Embarrassing Celebrity Moments at Award Shows
Wardrobe malfunctions, teleprompter fails, epic tumbles, and that exceptionally awkward Emma Stone hug: Awards shows are embarrassing. Cringeworthy. Sometimes even painful to watch. And since the SAG Awards are this Sunday (at 8 p.m. EST, but who’s counting?), we thought we’d take a little trip down memory lane to recount the most embarrassing celebrity moments at awards shows ever.
To be honest, we’re semi-regretting our deep dive, because some of these situations were so uncomfortable and thorny that it really is hard to look, even though they’re now in the past. (Thank God.) Most recently, there was that time Emma Stone tried hugging the director of La La Land, Damien Chazelle, as he was going in for a kiss from his girlfriend—yeah, not good. Or what about when Jennifer Lawrence fell up the stairs at the Oscars? Ahead, the 27 most embarrassing celebrity award show fails of all time.

Few can forget the momentLady Gagawore a dress made of raw beef, more commonly known as the "meat dress" to the 2010 MTV Music Awards. This is not so much embarrassing as it is a serious WTF moment, but when you think about how many animals were killed to fashion an inedible dress, well—that's pretty embarrassing.
Katherine Heiglsuffered a wardrobe malfunction onstage at the 2010 ShoWest convention in Las Vegas, which is not so much an award show as a movie theater industry exposition, but—we digress. Suffice it to say that this moment was beyond embarrassing; luckily, she saved herself from complete exposure.
Polar oppositesAnne HathawayandJames Francohosted the 2011 Oscars, and it was a major fail. From start to finish. The whole award show was embarrassing.
Justine Timberlake andMila Kunisgot a little too handsy onstage at the 2011 MTV Movie Awards.

We can't stop.
Thumbs up, J.
Adrien Brodyplanted a surprise kiss (his first mistake) onHalle Berry (second mistake) at the 2013 Oscars. Halle wasnotprepared.
At the 2013 VMAs,Robin ThickeandMiley Cyrusteamed together for an infamous performance in which Cyrus fully embraced her role as the twerk queen … all over Thicke.
Nicki Minaj'swardrobe malfunction at the 2014 VMAs shocked the audience as she desperately worked to keep herself from being exposed.
Ian Somerhaldertried to kissAriana Grandeduring the 2014 Teen Choice Awards, and she awkwardly tried to avoid the encounter, which made it even more awkward. PSA: Don't try to surprise-kiss anyone.
Jonah HillandMargot Robbiedealt with a teleprompter malfunction at the 2014 Golden Globes when the wrong speech was put on the screen.
John Travolta introducedIdina Menzelas "Adele Dazeem" at the 2014 Oscars. Uh, just—no.
Technology cannot be trusted. At the 2014 SAG Awards,Cate Blanchettexpressed her anger at the teleprompter when it almost instantly cut her off during her speech.
At the Oscars in 2015,Neil Patrick Harrisre-enacted a scene from the Best Picture winner, Birdman, by showing up on stage in his underwear. Of course.
Naomi Watts made quite an entrance at the 2015 SAG Awards when she tripped overEmma Watson'sdress onstage.
Madonnafell off the stage and down a few stairs (backwards!) during her performance at the 2015 Brit Awards.
Jon Hammcrawled onto the stage at the 2015 Emmy Awards to accept his award for his role of Don Draper onMad Men. Why? We don't know for sure, but after being nominated for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series seven years in a row, he finally won. And if that's not reason to crawl onstage, we don't know what is.
At the 2019 Oscars—hashtagged#OscarsSoWhite—Stacey Dash made an extremely tone-deaf joke. "Happy Black History Month," she said. The audience collectively cringed—and let's just say no one really gave that one any applause.
Emma Stone got caught in a very (very) awkward hug at the Golden Globes this year. As La La LanddirectorDamien Chazelle was announced as the Best Director winner, Stone thought it would be a good time to go in for a hug—at the exact same time he kissed his girlfriend, Olivia Hamilton. That's not how you hug, Emma! To make matters worse: Ryan Gosling was in the background, witness to the madness. Here's a video of the whole debacle.
Teleprompters are officially theworst, and we're sure thatKristen Bellagrees. At the 2019 People's Choice Awards, Bell's teleprompter failed her while she was introducing Tyler Perry.
