During a relatively uneventful Golden Globe awards, Seth Rogen apparently couldn't resist the opportunity to liven things up a bit.

When the comedic actor stepped on stage to present the award for Best Actress in a Motion Picture- Comedy or Musical with Kate Beckinsale, he started off by simply introducing himself. But it only went downhill from there.

"Hello, I'm Seth Rogen and I am currently trying to conceal a massive erection," he seemingly read of the teleprompter. A clearly uncomfortable Beckinsale chuckled nervously and mouthed, "How nice" as the audience laughed uproariously.

And though that might have been the highest level of awkwardness the Golden Globes achieved -- sorry, Ricky Gervais -- there certainly were others. From Rob Lowe and Julianne Moore's teleprompter malfunction to a "Downton Abbey" winner's trip up the stairs, check out the video above to see which moments from the ceremony left the audience cringing.
