With all the preparation that goes into award shows—the flawless makeup, the perfect ensemble, and the deliberate answers to every prying question—the red carpets mostly go off without a hitch. Still, with so many moving parts (and so many very famous celebrities), there's bound to be a couple big blunders. Here are eight of some of the most memorable awards show flubs ever.

We love these moments because they prove that all of them are human just like us (and yes, you guessed it, Jennifer Lawrence is a major feature of this list).

1. Jennifer Lawrence falls on the red carpet

While walking the red carpet at the 86th Annual Academy Awards, Jennifer Lawrence had a now-trademark trip over her beautiful Dior dress.

2. Amy Schumer surprises Kim Kardashian and Kanye West with a tumble

At a party celebrating Time's 100 Most Influential People, Amy Schumer throws herself down in front of Kim and Kanye, effectively stealing the attention away from the power couple.

3. Jennifer Lawrence asks Josh Hutcherson about his rash

Aw, JLaw. Already showing up again so soon on this list. While promoting The Hunger Games, Jennifer Lawrence can be heard asking co-star Josh Hutcherson if his rash is okay (and he immediately realizes that was caught on camera).

4. Zac Efron drops a condom at the Lorax premiere

At the premiere of his children's movie The Lorax, Zac Efron accidentally drops a condom on the orange carpet in front of a gaggle of reporters. Luckily for him, you can't really tell on film, but that didn't stop numerous news outlets from asking him about the incident later on.

5. Isaac Mizrahi gropes Scarlett Johansson

I think we can all agree that just because fashion designer Isaac Mizrahi is gay does not mean it's okay to grab a woman's breast without her consent. Though this clip doesn't show their dialogue, Isaac just jumps right in there as Scarlett is describing her dress, and she's forced to play it off with a shocked look on her face.

6. Quentin Tarantino spits on reporter

Tarantino mistook this unlucky reporter for the an editor who wrote something about his father, so naturally his first reaction was to spit on him.

7. Diana Ross jiggles Lil' Kim's boob

Some of the best moments happen when the celebrities come in from the red carpet. Case in point: that iconic moment when Diana Ross got up close and personal with Lil' Kim's pasty. Fortunately for MTV, that double stick tape held up to the force of that jiggle.

8. Jennifer Lawrence falls winning her Oscar

Capping off this list is, once again, Jennifer Lawrence and her Oscar fall. Her name is announced at around 1:19 if you don't want to sit through the whole clip, but who doesn't want to relive this adorable moment?
