It's happened to the best of us - albeit, not live on stage by Nicole Kidman at a glittering award ceremony that's being broadcast across the world (yet). But hey, Rami Malek is human too.

The 37-year-old actor endured a very awkward moment at the Golden Globes on Sundy when he was inadvertently snubbed on stage by Nicole after his film Bohemian Rhapsody won Best Picture.

The star rushed on stage and went to greet the Big Little Lies actress, but she obviously didn't see him, so accidentally ignored his attempt at a hug and the outcome is quite painful to watch. Mind you, we're sure Rami's shiny Best Actor Golden Globe statue was consolation enough, so swings and roundabouts.

And obviously, the world felt Rami's pain, with one fan writing on Twitter: "Rami Malek awkwardly and unsuccessfully trying to have a moment with Nicole Kidman is me trying to insert myself in groups and conversations at social events."

Been there...

Poor Rami has since been made to watch the moment during his post-award appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live, and he immediately covered his face with his hands. Which sadly didn't make it go away.

But he assured host Jimmy: "I've known her [Kidman] many years despite what it may seem from that video.


"I thought I could easily go up and say hi but in the moment like that… very awkward. I have a feeling this will be haunting me on the internet."

Meanwhile, Rami beat off Bradley Cooper for A Star Is Born, and BlacKkKlansman's John David Washington to pick up the award for his critically-acclaimed performance as Freddie Mercury in the biopic.

He paid tribute to the late Freddie Mercury in his acceptance speech, saying: "I'm beyond moved. My heart is pounding out of my chest right now. This is a profound honour to receive this and to be counted amongst such extraordinary actors. I’m privileged to be counted among you.

"Thank you to Freddie Mercury for giving me the joy of a lifetime. I love you, you beautiful man. This is for and because of you gorgeous."

Congrats, Rami!
