John Travolta and Scarlett Johansson take the most awkward Oscars photo ever

There's awkward, and then there's awwwwwkward.

Pretty sure this photo of whatever John Travolta is trying to do with Scarlett Johansson falls into the latter category.

Seriously, every single thing about this photo makes you want to cringe.
