We don’t all look alike and our movie titles don’t all sound alike, but for some reason, during the 2017 Golden Globes, folks kept confusing two of the biggest Black movies of the year.
During Sunday night’s award show, Hollywood hot shots continued to mash up Hidden Figures and Fences for a nice remix called Hidden Fences.
For those of you who don’t know, Hidden Figures stars Octavia Spencer, Janelle Monae and Taraji P. Henson and tells the story of three African-American women who become the brains behind astronaut John Glenn’s launch into orbit.
Fences, on the other hand, is a play-turned-film starring Viola Davis and Denzel Washington. In the movie, Washington plays a sanitation worker in the 1950s who holds onto his dream of becoming a professional baseball player.
The movie shenanigans first started when Jenna Bush, the daughter of former President George W. Bush, called Hidden Figures “Hidden Fences” while interviewing Pharrell on the red carpet. The producer was nominated for best original score. His reaction, by the way … priceless.

Twitter had a complete field day with the flubs, drawing reactions from viewers across the country. Even actress Gabrielle Union couldn’t help but chime in.
And we can’t forget about the memes that instantly sparked on social media. Click to see how folks grabbed the mishap by the reigns and ran full speed with it. You might want to get a tissue to wipe the tears from laughing so hard.
Watch: Halle Berry Issues Whiskey Challenge During ‘Kingsman’ Interview
Halle Berry proved she could hang with the fellas when she downed a glass of whiskey at Comic Con alongside her Kingsman: The Golden Circle co-stars. But don’t expect her to do that again.
“No more, no more,” she said after hilariously bolting from the room when we asked her if she’d drink another glass. “I will never [do it again], and no one lets me live down the fact that I did it either.”
According to Berry she was ill for three days after, but that didn’t stop her and Pedro Pascal from daring me to throw back a glass right before our interview.
Not one to turn down a challenge, I did it, and received a round of applause and high fives before preceding to discuss the duo’s roles and why they decided to join the cast of Kingsman.
“Matthew Vaughn’s version of these movies always interested me” explained Berry who is no stranger to spy flicks after starring in the James Bond film Die Another Day. “I was apart of the Bond series and I feel like this is similar but it’s also for the new generation.”
She continued, “Some of the elements are the same but I call it spy thriller 2.0, he takes it to the next level that no one else does right now.”
In the film Berry, Pascal, Jeff Bridges and Channing Tatum play members of the Statesmen – a U.S. Spy agency operating out of a Kentucky Bourbon distillery. Pascal told us he gained a newfound appreciation for men in suits, but still prefers his jeans.
“I play agent whiskey. I’m a southern gentlemen so I’m a little more buttoned up … I’m like the stateside version of those square pegs from across the pond,” he joked.
Kingsman: The Golden Circle hits theaters September 22.
