Eh… That wasn’t supposed to happen.

Yes, it is a yearly occurrence that something happens that wasn’t quite scripted, be it when Mariah Carey stole Meryl Streep’s seat last year or Emma Stone’s rejected hug in 2017, awkward moments always happen and not even Sandra and Adam, the hosts, can stop them. This year, however, it wasn’t the hosts that caused the awkward moment, it was Nicole Kidman who snubbed Rami Malek when he received an award. He was seen on stage attempting to hug Nicole but she seemed to walk away from him.

The Golden Globes was a great way to kick off the awards season of 2019 and it has to be said that there has been some amazing films and TV shows over the past year, from Bohemian Rhapsody to Bodyguard, there was definitely something for everyone to enjoy.
