If you haven't seen it yet, prepare to feel very awkward watching this clip of Bohemian Rhapsody's Rami Malek getting snubbed by Nicole Kidman at the Golden Globes on January 13.

Skip to 2:10 for the moment it happens:

Well, Kidman has since responded to blanking “good friend” Malek, saying, “I just did not feel his hand on my back! I was mortified… I love that man, he's so gentle and softly spoken. He's a darling.

“He sent me an e-mail. I sent him an e-mail,” Kidman added. “We were laughing, actually. We were both in a bit of a daze.”

The pair reunited on the Critics’ Choice Awards red carpet, laughing off the on-stage blanking.

Malek spoke to ET, making sure there was no confusion about the incident, saying: "Nicole's the best, and we've been having a laugh about it together."

Talking to Jimmy Kimmel, earlier in the week, Malek explained: “I've known [Nicole] many years despite what it may seem from that video... I thought I could easily go up and say 'hi' but in the moment like that… very awkward. I have a feeling this will be haunting me on the internet.”
