There are plenty of moments we’re reliving over and over again after yesterday’s Golden Globe awards.

THAT Oprah speech (and the news that she’s “seriously considering” running for the US presidency in 2020). Natalie Portman’s scathing two-word comment during the Best Director award.

The hundreds of actresses who chose to wear black in solidarity for the victims of harassment and abuse.

And, of course, Hugh Jackman sporting the most disappointed face we ever did see.

But there’s another moment that’s caught the attention of the public: when Fargo star Ewan McGregor, 51, appeared to thank both his wife and girlfriend while accepting the award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Limited Series or a Motion Picture Made for Television.

While at first glance (or rather, first listen) the idea sounds rather awkward, there's more to the story than meets the eye.

After 22 years of marriage, McGregor and Eve Mavrakis, a production manager whom he met on set in 1995, revealed they had separated in October when news that McGregor had started dating his Fargo co-star, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, broke.

While accepting his Golden Globe , he thanked both his wife AND his girlfriend . Another added: “ Ewan McGregor using his speech to thank both his mistress AND his wife he left for her is gutsy.”

While it's not known whether McGregor and Mavrakis were separated or estranged before his new romance, the production designer has only addressed her husband's new relationship once. Replying to a fan's comment on Instagram, which blasted McGregor for leaving his wife and children for a younger woman, Mavrakis simply wrote, "What can I do?"

But before the world yesterday, in his Golden Globe acceptance speech, McGregor paid tribute to his wife.

"I want to take a moment to just say thank you to Eve, who always stood by me for 22 years," he said.

"And my four children, Clara, Esther, Jamyan and Anouk- I love you."

"There would have been no Ray without Mary Elizabeth Winstead, so thank you very much."

It's hardly the first time a famous face has uttered the names of their wife and girlfriend within the same breath: last year, a video of soccer star Mohammed Anas went viral when he said he wanted to thank his "wife and girlfriend".

"I love you so much. I love you so much from my heart."

But McGregor's speech was definitely no slip of the tongue, and his deliberate inclusion of both of the women in his life caused confusion among some Golden Globes viewers.
