The 76th Golden Globe Awards were confusing and awkward as hell. Twitter was a flurry of perplexed reactions. No, it wasn't outrage or anger, in typical Twitter fashion; it was genuine puzzlement. 

While film and television buffs often use the Golden Globes to predict the outcomes of other awards shows, namely the Academy Awards, the results were so shocking no one really knows what to make of them. Moreover, the ceremony itself was riddled with clumsy moments from seemingly nervous actors and actresses. 

The 76th Golden Globes were held last night and people were confused as hell. The ceremony was filled with unexplainable wins, confusing losses, and some extremely awkward moments. Let's do this, kids. 

Emma Stone shouted "I'm sorry" when Golden Globes co-host Sandra Oh called out white actors who play Asian characters. Stone notoriously played a native Hawaiian in the film Aloha. Awkward as hell. 

Everyone thought This Is Us star Chrissy Metz called Glow's Alison Brie "such a bitch" when Metz actually said, "She's such a babe."

Rami Malek desperately tried to introduce himself to Nicole Kidman, who towered over him, like a little boy trying to get his mom's attention in a supermarket. We have to laugh!

Chris Messina debuted his bleached blond hair and we still don't know if he's hot or not. 

Christian Bale thanked "Satan" for his Best Actor in a Comedy or Musical win for his portrayal of the (definitely evil) former vice president Dick Cheney. 

Look, you're not going to convince anyone with brain cells that Lady Gaga is a better actress than Glenn Close. But, needless to say, everyone thought Gaga was a shoo-in for Best Actress in a Drama. Gaga lost to Close, but she was graceful about it. 

Bradley Cooper's face throughout the evening indicated that he believed A Star Is Born would win Best Motion Picture and that he would win Best Actor in a Drama. He was so, so wrong.

Last but not least, the two films with the least critical acclaim, Green Book and Bohemian Rhapsody, swept the Golden Globes. While Malek's portrayal of Freddie Mercury was held in high esteem (his personal victory of winning Best Actor was far from a disappointment), the film was almost universally panned by critics. 

Bohemian Rhapsody basically got D's in class and received valedictorian anyway. 

Green Book was riddled with controversy from day one. What was supposed to be the "true story" of Don Shirley was called a "symphony of lies" by Shirley's family. Critics felt the film sanitized racism to make white Americans feel less ashamed of it. Mahershala Ali apologized to Shirley's family. If that weren't problematic enough, co-star Viggo Mortensen, who portrays Tony Vallelonga in the film, dropped the N-word during a post-screening discussion in November, and, along with the director and producers, dismissed the Shirley family's claims.  

No matter what moment of the night you choose, the general sentiment amongst viewers was confusion. 

Nothing makes sense and everything is confusing as hell. Welcome to 2019!
