The Golden Globes 2017 have come and gone but the cringeworthy Golden Globes moments will live on forever, thanks to the energy created by their awkwardness spreading out across the world like a tidal wave of embarrassment, drowning the viewers in some of the most painful jokes, missed hugs, and very unfortunate appeals to a higher power that have ever been made. As far as modern awards shows go, the 2017 Golden Globes were fine, and an obvious attempt at something a bit nicer than the last two shows that featured more acerbic hosts dishing out every barb they could muster. Jimmy Fallon’s attempt to please everyone while doling out his usual shtick led to some of the most embarrassing Golden Globes moments, but he wasn’t alone in looking like a dummy on TV.

The most awkward moments from any awards show, and especially the Golden Globes where the booze is flowing like a Great Gatsby-themed 30th birthday party, happen when someone who isn’t funny tries to hit the audience with a nugget of comedy gold. It’s always terrible. It doesn’t matter if you’re Goldie Hawn or Ryan Gosling; if you don’t write jokes on the regular, you shouldn’t be making them. But then there are also the flubs and strange award speeches that make you feel like the only sober person at a wedding.
