Golden Globes fails are pretty much one of the only reasons that people watch the show. From drunken acceptance speeches, to total teleprompter screw up, the awkward Golden Globes moments on this list aren’t just award show fails, they’re award show gold.

If you’re an obsessive award show viewer, you’re not going to want to miss this list featuring the all time most awkward Golden Globes FAILS.

Some of the Golden Globes flubs on this list are absolutely painful. It seems actors can memorize lines until the cows come home, but if they have to pronounce a name with more than two syllables their tongues jump out a window.

It may be a Golden Globes gaffe to Hollywood, but to the viewers at home these fails are the best parts of the show.
