It's not the explanation the world was hoping for

Between walking his Dad up the red carpet, his reunion with Titanic co-star Kate Winslet and, you know, actually winning an award, it's fair to say that Leonardo DiCaprio stole Golden Globe night.

It was the below viral clip, however, that swept the internet like wildfire. The clip in question shows DiCaprio pulling some suspect face movements as Lady Gaga brushes past him on her way to the stage upon winning Best Actress in a Miniseries for American Horror Story: Hotel.

DiCaprio has officially weighed in on the subject of what actually happened - and his excuse, it has to be said, is disappointingly underwhelming.

During his backstage press conference after winning Best Actor in a Drama for The Revenant, ET asked him what had exactly happened.

"Oh lord, that's trending, huh?" the actor said before innocently stating: "I just didn't know what was passing me - that was all!"

Talking about the film, the actor said: "This is a type of film that you won't see coming out of the Hollywood studio system very often.

"It's an epic art film and I'm just so happy it got recognised tonight."

The Revenant, released in the UK this Friday (15 January), was the big winner of the night, scooping two further awards including Best Director for Alejandro González Iñárritu and Best Motion Picture Drama.

The victory has made the film a firm Oscar favourite, the nominations of which will be revealed this Thursday (14 January).
