Ah, the awards show. A time for celebration, for recognition, for glamor, for… well, for some pretty wild moments. From Tim Commerford’s protest against Limp Bizkit at the 2000 MTV Video Music Awards to John Travolta’s “Adele Dazeem” at the 2014 Oscars, these moments have become ingrained in our collective pop culture memory.
But it’s not just the stars who are making waves. We’ve seen Angelina Jolie’s brotherly kiss on the lips and Adrien Brody’s surprise smooch on Halle Berry. We’ve seen Machine Gun Kelly dye his tongue black for the 2021 Billboard Music Awards and Björk wearing a swan dress to the 73rd Academy Awards. We’ve even seen Eileen Bowman and Rob Lowe’s 12-minute performance of a new version of Tina Turner’s “Proud Mary” at the 1989 Oscars.
These moments have become part of our awards show history, and they’re not going away anytime soon. So, without further ado, let’s take a look at some of the wildest, most outrageous, and most memorable moments from awards shows over the years. Enjoy!
