GOLDEN Globes viewers were left baffled when hosts Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh “dished out flu jabs” to their A-list guests.
Some of the stars were visibly uncomfortable as people dressed as doctors in white coats approached them in the audience to give them the shot just before the ceremony cut to a commercial break.
Andy and Sandra made reference to the infamous moment that Ellen DeGeneres ordered pizza to be delivered to the 2014 Academy Awards as they made the gag, which appeared to fall flat with both attendees and viewers at home.
In the skit, Sandra explained: “Since we already got food at the Globes, we thought we’d mix it up and try something new.
“So roll up your sleeves Hollywood, because you’re all getting flu shots!”
Andy added: “It cost $50 grand, you guys, you’re welcome!”
The Brooklyn 99 star also made a joke about “anti-vaxxers”, telling the crowd to put a napkin over their heads if they were against medical vaccinations.
Among the uncomfortable-looking stars in shot was actor Willem Dafoe, who politely tried to move away from the needle as a nurse approached him in the crowd.
Fans took to social media to point out his “adorable” response, while others slammed the “awkward” skit.
One wrote: “Did you see Willem Defoe’s reaction to the free flu shots? Now that was adorable.”
Another added: “That flu shot bit was… awkward. Man, hosting must be tough.”
A third said: “Okay but can we talk about how awkward that flu shot segment was?”
Although the flu jabs skit wasn’t entirely well-received, earlier in the night viewers praised actor Jim Carrey for “stealing the show” during the hosts’ opening monologue.
The esteemed Hollywood star played along in good humour as the presenters booted him from the “movie section” of the audience, because he is at the show for his TV series Kidding.
Opening the show, Killing Eve’s Sandra said: “I am seeing Jim Carrey sitting up front tonight in the movie section even though he’s nominated for a TV show.”
Andy added: “That’s not going to work, I am so sorry, Jim but we are going to have to ask you to vacate the movie section and go sit with the TV folk.”
Jim replied: “You’re kidding right?”
Andy retorted: “It’s awkward because you’re our hero but we do have to ask you to move.”
When the star said that he was in a new Sonic The Hedgehog film coming out later this year, Andy suggested Jim returned next year as a bodyguard was seen tapping Jim on the shoulder to escort him from the seat.
The funnyman shouted as he left his seat: “I’m going, should I take my dinner too?

“I wouldn’t want to leave any of my DNA in the film section.”
When the hosts further apologised, Jim hit back from the TV section: “I’m sorry, I can’t hear you.
“I see your lips moving but there’s a delay, it takes a long time for the sound to get this far.”
He then jokingly pulled two glasses to his eyes, pretending that he was using them to see the hosts from the distance.
