Pharrell Is Asked About His Film 'Hidden Fences' at 2017 Golden Globes -- Only He's Nominated for 'Hidden Figures'
NBC's Jenna Bush did a movie-title mash-up.
There are dozens of movies and television shows nominated at Sunday night's (Jan. 8) Golden Globes, and one red-carpet reporter accidentally mixed up a few of those titles when interviewing Pharrell Williams -- and Twitter, of course, noticed.
"So you're nominated tonight for Hidden Fences," NBC's Jenna Bush (yes, the daughter of former President George W. Bush) announced to Williams in the instantly viral pre-show clip. In fact, Pharrell is nominated for his soundtrack work on Hidden Figures, the untold story of three African-American NASA mathematicians, while Fences is a completely different nominated film starring Denzel Washington.
Twitter users zeroed in on Williams' unamused reaction to the flub, including in the video below:
