To use some Las Vegas lingo, the 53rd ACM Awards were pretty much a push, as any major wins the show pulled off were tempered with missteps and head-scratching moments. Women delivered some of the night's best performances, but were shut out of the Entertainer of the Year race.

And the shadow over the room – how to acknowledge the Route 91 Harvest festival shooting – never seemed to be fully dispelled. Here are the 15 best, worst and WTF moments of the 2018 ACMs.
