"At an ungodly hour" nghĩa là gì?

'At an ungodly hour' nghĩa là rất sớm vào buổi sáng, hoặc rất muộn vào buổi tối, quá khuya.

Ví dụ
One of these years, the Academy is going to realize how drab and anti-climactic and underwhelming it for them is to rattle off the nominees in rapid-fire fashion at an ungodly hour.

It is three in the morning. Some may call it an ungodly hour, while for others, it’s when the night ends. But for the media team from Malaysia and Indonesia, 3am was when the day begins at Gold Coast in Australia, arguably one of the most famous coastal cities in the world.

If you have to get up at an ungodly hour in order to get yourself TV-ready and set to speak for an interview, you would be forgiven (in this writer's opinion) for snoozing on the job. If anything, it makes Michael Bolton seem a little more human if he is susceptible (dễ bị, dễ mắc, dễ bị ảnh hưởng) to sleep just like the rest of us. But Bolton doesn't believe that's what happened here. Instead, he claims that it was a glitch and that he was actually tweeting. Do you believe that story?
