Tarantino took home the award for Best Screenplay — Motion Picture at the 77th annual awards show, for his work on Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. As Margot Robbie gleefully declared him the winner, Tarantino got out of his seat and made his way to the stage past Beyoncé and her husband, JAY-Z. Tarantino squeezed behind the superstar couple, leading Bey to glance over her shoulder at him — and it’s in that moment that fans felt an air of shade.
“DID BEYONCÉ JUST GLARE AT TARANTINO???? QUEEN!!!!! WE STAN,” one user wrote.
Another added, “Beyoncé has beef with Quentin now I think #GoldenGlobes.” See more reactions below.
