And the Award for Most Awkward Moment at the Oscars Goes To...

John Travolta accosted Idina Menzel's face, but at least he got her name right.

And the Award for Most Awkward Moment at the Oscars Goes To...

Just when you thought John Travolta royally screwing up Idina Menzel's name at the 2014 Oscars was as awkward as it gets, we're here to tell you that is not the case. In fact, we'd take another Adele Dazeem moment any day over the weirdness that went down between the stars at the Academy Awards this year.

Here's what happened:

Menzel got onstage and brought up her "very dear friend" John Travolta (well, she called him "Glaum Gazingo"). They hugged. Then things spiraled out of control when the actor accosted the Broadway singer's face — for what seemed like 10 years. Seriously he would NOT LET GO.

She took the whole thing in stride and laughed about their sordid Oscar history, but it was just so uncomfortable. It was worse than when Travolta tried to plant a smooch on Scarlett Johansson's face on the red carpet Sunday and got seriously shut down.

Watch what went down between Travolta and Menzel here — we've given you the awkward alert already.

John Travolta, please never apologize to us.
