Harry Styles, Michael Keaton and other stars who were in the bathroom when they received the award


An untimely bathroom break! Dodge Cat, Harry Styles and other stars were forced to return to the stage after going to the toilet before their category was named at the awards ceremony.

The “Say So” singer made headlines at the 64th Annual Grammy Awards in April 2022 when her colleague SZA took to the stage without a Doji to accept the award for Best Pop Performance by a duo or group.

— You went to the bathroom for about five minutes, are you serious? SZA asked, who was also hobbling to the platform on crutches with difficulty.

Dodge was out of breath when she finally said: “I’ve never peed so fast in my life.”

Recovering from the fact that he almost missed the victory, the rapper got emotional, accepting the trophy for “Miss Me More”. (These two women have surpassed Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga’s “I Get a Kick Out of You,” Justin Bieber and Benny Blanco’s “Lonely,” BTS’s “Butter” and Coldplay’s “Higher Power.”)

“I really appreciate it. Thanks to everyone, my family, my team, I wouldn’t be here without you, and I wouldn’t be here without my fans,” she said. — And you know what, SZA, you are everything to me. You’re amazing. You are the embodiment of talent, you are the author of texts, you are everything.”

However, she is hardly the first star to go missing when their name was called. Back in 1998, Kristin Lahti went missing when Robin Williams announced that she had won Best Actress in a Dramatic television Series for her role in the film Hope of Chicago at the Golden Globes.

— I was in the bathroom, Mom! — she explained when she finally reached the podium, jokingly wiping her hand with a towel.

Almost two decades later, Lahti reflected on the moment under discussion.

“It was the first thing that came to my mind that my mom said, ‘What the hell were you doing in the bathroom? Couldn’t you have gone earlier?” the actress said in a special edition dedicated to the 75th anniversary of the Golden Globes in 2017. “Everyone was so embarrassed for me, maybe they could somehow understand.”

The actor almost missed the moment when he received the award for Best Actor in a TV movie or a limited series for “Dopesika” at the 28th Screen Actors Guild Awards ceremony.
