The actress, 29, was seen clinging to an attentive man as she tumbled to her knees.
Once she regained her bearings, she removed her footwear and walked away barefoot.
In order to avoid another fall, Gomez presented an award that evening barefoot.
The actress was accompanied by Only Murders in the Building costar Martin Short, 71, onstage at the ceremony as they presented the honors for Outstanding Female Actress in a Supporting Role. (West Side Story’s Ariana DeBose took home the honors.)
The Dead Don’t Die actress donned a luxe ensemble to the award show in Southern California, wearing a black Oscar de la Renta gown with a $1 million Bulgari necklace with more than 200 carats of diamonds.

Said another: ‘Who walks barefoot at an award show? Only Selena Gomez … she really hosted the award barefoot’
