The 2017 Golden Globe Awards Couldn’t Remember That “Hidden Fences” Isn’t A Real Movie

Twitter is now making the best #HiddenFences mash-ups because of the Hidden Figures flub.

January 08, 2017

At the 74th Annual Golden Globe awards tonight in Beverly Hills, no one could remember that Hidden Figures and Fences are two different movies. On the hectic red carpet, reporter (and George W. Bush's daughter) Jenna Bush began interviewing Pharrell Williams and flubbed the title.

"So, you're nominated for 'Hidden Fences,'" Bush begins. Except Pharrell is nominated for his work on the score for Hidden Figures starring Janelle Monae, Taraji P. Henson, and Octavia Spencer. And Fences is an entirely different movie starring Denzel Washington and Viola Davis. In response, Pharrell immediately tuned Bush out and began flickering his eyes back and forth in disbelief. Watch the footage above.

When Michael Keaton announced the winner for Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture later on, he made the same faux-pas. "Octavia Spencer, Hidden Fences," Keaton read from the teleprompter. View below.

Of course, Twitter was delighted by Pharrell's side-eye, but equally outraged by the two mishaps. For comedic relief, users started making up the best mash-ups from well-known pieces of black culture in order to satirize the ridiculousness of the Golden Globe Awards' mistakes. View the best reactions below.
