At Hollywood awards shows, being able to lose gracefully – or at least act content with the other winner – has always been the norm.

However, at the Golden Globes, Hugh Jackman could not have looked any less impressed by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association choosing James Franco over himself for best leading actor in a comedy/musical.

As Franco made his acceptance speech, bringing The Disaster Artist subject Tommy Wiseau on stage alongside him, Jackman pulled a face expressing utter bewilderment.

Of course, Twitter users were quick to pick up on the moment, sharing Jackman’s face accross the Internet.

Jackman was nominated for The Greatest Showman, and faced stiff competition from Steve Carrell for Battle of the Sexes, Ansel Elgort for Baby Driver, and Daniel Kaluuya for Get Out.

Kaluuya’s loss proved particularly controversial as many people noted that Get Out failed to win a single award at the Golden Globes. Read the full list of winners here.
