SAG Awards 2022: Salma Hayek’s awkward sartorial mishap with Fran Drescher


Turns out, an awkward silence on stage wasn’t the only awkward moment Salma Hayek faced at the SAG Awards.

Salma Hayek gracefully handled two awkward moments at the Screen Actors Guild Awards — one on stage and one in the bathroom.

The Mexican-American actress and producer remained silent on stage when veteran actor Michael Keaton was late to accept his award on Monday.

“Are you kidding me? I’m nervous…come on, Michael,” Hayek called out after a while.

Turns out, that wasn’t the only awkward, yet funny, moment Hayek had to overcome to deliver the award.

In the bathroom before she took the stage, Hayek’s glove stuck to the crystal embellishments of Fran Drescher’s dress.

“I can’t even believe it, are you recording this?” Drescher, who played Fran Fine in The nannysaid in a video of the incident, which was posted to Hayek’s Instagram on Wednesday.

“Oh my god, we’re stuck. You get on stage with me,” Hayek added.

Luckily, an assistant was able to unhook the two actresses from each other.

Hayek captioned the video: “My glove got caught on (Fran Drescher’s) amazing dress, so I got stuck in the bathroom right before I had to present the award to (Michael Keaton) who was also stuck in the bathroom.”

It was a reference to Keaton who, once on stage, blamed his lateness on a “full-packed” bathroom.

“Sorry, quick trip to the men’s room,” the 70-year-old actor said at the start of his acceptance speech for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a TV Movie or Limited Series.

It was a lighthearted start to what quickly became a moving speech, where he dedicated the gong to his nephew and his sister, revealing through tears that he had lost his nephew to drug addiction.

Hayek also wasn’t the only actress to take to Instagram after the awards to preview their sartorial misadventures.

Selena Gomez took the stage barefoot to present an award after a previous fall on the red carpet.

Fans on social media were quick to praise the 29-year-old singer and actress, but expressed confusion as to why she wasn’t wearing shoes.

“Last night was so magical. Couldn’t keep my heels on but managed to take a few selfies,” she wrote on Instagram, sharing some photos of her look the next day.

A photo also surfaced on social media of Gomez standing with Nicole Kidman, who also took off her shoes, at the awards show.

Fans praised Kidman for his “barefoot togetherness”.
