On Sunday, During the Golden Globes Awards ceremony the title to film Hidden Figures, starring Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer and Janelle Monae as the Black mathematicians who helped launch the first spaceship into orbit was pronounced incorrectly during the telecast…
First by Jenna Hargar Bush who asked Pharrell about his nomination for Hidden Fences…. And then by presenter Micheal Keaton who also called the film Hidden Fences while announcing Octavia Spencer’s nomination.
Here’s an update on that..
Jenna Bush Hager apologized Monday for a mistake she made at the Golden Globes that involved her mixing up the names of two movies, both of which feature predominantly black casts.
The mistake occurred while Jenna was interviewing singer Pharrell, who was nominated for best original score for the movie “Hidden Figures.”
“I accidentally, in the electricity of the red carpet, which I had never done one before, called ‘Hidden Figures’ ‘Hidden Fences,’” she said on TODAY Monday.
