Rami Malek's massive Oscar night took an unexpected and awks turn after he slipped near the Dolby Theatre stage after he won best actor.

Luckily, he didn't suffer any injuries, according to the Los Angeles Times. Holding on to his golden statuette, Malek seemed stunned, according to reports, and was helped up by those around him and moved to a seat in the front row. He was discreetly treated by medical staffers, then walked on his own back onstage and exited into the wings.

Luckily for Malek, the moment wasn't caught on live broadcast as it happened when the show went to an ad break.

Malek landed his first Oscar for his portrayal of Queen frontman Freddie Mercury in Bohemian Rhapsody. The film won four Oscars Sunday night out of five nominations.
