Maya Rudolph and Kenan Thompson get handsy with host Amy Poehler during sketch at the Golden Globes 

Maya Rudolph and fellow SNL star Kenan Thompson poked fun at award show acceptance speeches during the 78th Annual Golden Globes on Sunday night.

The dynamic duo took to the stage as their alter egos, Beverly Jackfruit and Francois Jean Rudy, to accept the 'award' for Least Original Song, presented to them by host Amy Poehler.

Right off the bat, Maya and Kenan seemingly flouted the show's COVID-19 protocols as they got hilariously handsy with Poehler during their bit.

After announcing them as the winner's of Least Original Song, Amy encouraged the pair to come onstage to address their peers and fans.

Once onstage, Kenan, using a fake French accent, wrapped his arms around Amy, dipped her, and planted a passionate kiss on her as Maya gazed out at the audience.

Going in for her own moment with Amy, Maya delivered a celebratory boob tap, remarking that the comedian's chest felt 'perky' to the touch.

After getting some giggles out of the audience with their awkward antics, Maya and Kenan commenced their ridiculous acceptance speech, cradling one another as they spoke.

Rudolph launched into a dramatic description of her cohort, while slowly caressing his face.

'Mr. Francois Jean Rudy! Oh, this man!' uttered Rudolph in her go-to husky voice, with Poehler remarking from side stage: 'Oh my god you are taking so much time with this and you're making everyone nervous!' 

The pair's touchy-feely exchanges only got more and more intense as Maya continued to explain the origin of their love story.

Maya and Kenan raddled off several other nonsensical lines, including a line joking about COVID-19 being 'a hoax,' before being drowned out by the infamous 'drowning out' music that urges award recipients to wrap up their speeches.

This year's Golden Globes ceremony, which usually takes place in early January, was pushed back to February 28 as Hollywood continues to adjust to the coronavirus pandemic and new safety guidelines.   

Poehler and Tina Fey returned to host for the fourth time. The comedy duo did the honors in 2013, 2014 and 2015. It is the first ever awards show to be broadcast from two separate coasts. 

Wild! 'Mr. Francois Jean Rudy! Oh, this man!' uttered Rudolph in her go-to husky voice, with Poehler remarking from side stage: 'Oh my god you are taking so much time with this and you're making everyone nervous!'
