While the Golden Globe Awards are honoring greatness in film and television, ET is highlighting the most outrageous moments to have taken place at the awards show.

Most Outrageous Moment by a Presenter: Jeremy Renner

In 2015, The Avengers star couldn't help but comment on fellow presenter, Jennifer Lopez's, cleavage while announcing Billy Bob Thornton as the winner in the category for Best Performance by an Actor in a Miniseries or Motion Picture Made for Television.

After politely asking J. LO to open the envelope, the singer admitted that she would be the best one to break through the seal since she's "got the nails," to which Renner quipped, "You got the globes, too."

"It seemed like a good time!" Zellweger explained to ET. "The lights went down they said commercial. I thought, 'Hey!'"
