Christine Lahti was in the bathroom when she was announced winner of the Golden Globe for Best Actress in a TV Series Drama for her role in "Chicago Hope" in 1997. After a bit of awkward stalling, Robin Williams took the stage for some much-appreciated impromptu standup until Lahti arrived.

Kristen Stewart dropped her popcorn award for Best Female Performance at the 2009 MTV Movie Awards. Luckily, she had a good laugh about the ordeal -- and so did co-star Robert Pattinson.
