While critics are largely declaring last night's Golden Globes a resounding success, it was not without its awkward moments, topped by Paul Rudd, 43, and Salma Hayek, 46, who got up on stage to present the award for Best Television Series, when the teleprompter failed to roll for them.

And then there was silence, with Rudd and Hayek staring awkwardly into the camera. Rudd attempted to use his comedic timing and natural charm to ad-lib through the accident. "Hello," he said, smiling shyly, after a long pause. "How's everybody doing? Good? All right, great," he said, and then the clips started to roll.
