Golden Globes 2016: Leonardo DiCaprio explains awkward Lady Gaga moment

‘Oh, lord — that’s trending, huh?’


Lady Gaga and Leonardo DiCaprio both had big nights at Sunday’s Golden Globes — not only for their respective wins (him for The Revenant, her for American Horror Story), but also for the awkward moment the two inadvertently shared during the ceremony.

As Gaga walked to the stage to accept her award for best actress in a limited series, she brushed DiCaprio and apparently startled him, leading to one of the night’s most GIF-able moments.

When shown the viral moment backstage by Entertainment Tonight, DiCaprio and his director Alejandro González Iñárritu both laughed.

“Oh lord — that’s trending, huh?” DiCaprio said.

Fact of the matter is, Gaga simply took him by surprise.

“I just didn’t know what was passing me, that’s all!” he explained.

Likely because of that moment, both Gaga and DiCaprio were two of the most talked about stars on Twitter during the Globes. Head here for the full list of the night’s winners.
