Last night the Hollywood Film Awards made their first televised appearance—and it was a weird one. In one of the night’s stranger moments, a barely coherent Johnny Depp took the stage to introduce talent manager Shep Gordon, but ended up cursing a bunch first.

“That’s the weirdest microphone I’ve seen in my life,” he began, before saying something blocked out by the censors that got the crowd laughing. Much like his Jack Sparrow character, Depp teeters and mumbles his way through an apparent haze before eventually being cut off by the show’s producers. Watch a clip below.
