The Golden Globes Most Awkward Moments

The Golden Globes Most Awkward Moments - Even the most carefully planned award shows have their clumsy moments, and this year's Golden Globes telecast on NBC was no different. Here's a rundown of the unexpected moments that made viewers laugh or wince during last night's show.

Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt have been divorced for more than five years now. But because the tabloids keep the divorce aftermath and Pitt's relationship with his next partner, Angelina Jolie, so front-and-center in the popular imagination, it was still interesting when Aniston's presenting duties forced her to utter the name of her ex's movie, "Inglourious Basterds." But Aniston did so gracefully and without flinching.

One would assume Julia Roberts is used to being the most famous person in the room. But when presenting the award for best motion picture drama, she exclaimed that her seat next to Paul McCartney, which the cameras had been cutting back to all evening, was causing her friends to go crazy. She said she was receiving "more text messages than I've ever gotten in my life!"

Harrison Ford might have just been nervous -- he's an actor and not a professional TV presenter, after all -- but his oddly slow and slightly loopy delivery during his presentation of best motion picture drama nominee "Up in the Air" made it seem like the actor had a bad case of stage fright.

Similarly, poor Felicity Huffman flubbed her lines again and again during her presentation duties, but was so self-aware and apologetic about it that she came off as even more endearing for not getting them exactly right.

When "Mad Men" was awarded the Golden Globe for best TV drama, heartthrob Jon Hamm somehow managed to arrive on the stage far in advance of his coworkers. His look of panicked confusion as he looked desperately around for them was very un-Don Draper-like and more like his goofier guest-starring role on "30 Rock."

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

Urban Meyer Stepping Down - Well, it appears as if it’s deja vu all over again.

Less than 12 months after retiring and then un-retiring, Urban Meyer is apparently stepping down as Florida’s head coach. There’s no word on if he will be stepping back up tomorrow.

According to Todd Wright of Sporting News radio, GatorUpdates.com and AOL Fanhouse‘s Brett McMurphy Meyer will announce at a 5 p.m. ET press conference Wednesday that he is resigning/retiring as the Gators’ head coach. There are no further details available at this time, other than GatorUpdates reporting over the weekend that Meyer checked into a hospital the week of the UGA game and has been undergoing tests since.

Obviously, we’ll have more on this story throughout the day and well into the night…

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.
