Along with the mega beauty looks, the fairytale gowns and inspiring speeches, we all inevitably watch the Golden Globes for those cringe-worthy moments.

And, last night's blunders were aplenty – Jimmy's prompter went down in his opening speech, Emma Stone tried to double hug Damien Chazelle and Sofia Vergara made a NSFW joke when introducing this year's Miss Golden Globe(s) – Scarlet, Sistine and Sophia Stallone.

To introduce the genetically-blessed Stallone sisters, Vergara purposefully fluffed her words, saying 'anal' instead of 'annual'.

She said: 'The Hollywood Foreign Press Association has an anal tradition...I didn't mean … they have an anus tradition.

'They have a tradition that they do every year of choosing a second generation perform to assist in the presentation of the award to fulfill the duties of Miss Golden Globes,' she added.

However, while making a blunder when speaking live can often be funny (see any radio or TV host getting Jeremy Hunt's name wrong) many people wondered why Vegara felt the need to mock her strong Colombian accent (yet again) and her gender.

However, there seems to be some confusion over who wrote her joke.

Some viewers appeared angry at the notion of Golden Globe writers coercing Vergara to do the joke while others think Vergara might have come up with her gag by herself, having previously made her accent the main punchline of several jokes in the past.

But, does it really matter who wrote the joke?

Emily Nussbaum, television critic for The New Yorker, admitted she was tired of all the ditzy women jokes in general.

Later in the evening, Trainwreck star Amy Schumer and Death Becomes Her actress Goldie Hawn took to the stage to present an award, joking that Goldie couldn't read the prompter, which could be seen as a dig at her age or gender.

A good Golden Globe gag often plays on the actor's own pitfalls and, of course, no awards speech hits the mark quite as well as it does with a hint of humour and self-deprication, but are we tired of the scatterbrained beauty trope?
