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.

Michael Keaton also couldn’t quite get it together when he announced the nominees for Best Supporting Actress In a Motion Picture, also mistaking the films’ titles.

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.

Cocktails & Coins! Inside Aisha Tyler’s Wild Life After Divorce & Departure From ‘The Talk’

Published

Aisha Tyler went through a few MAJOR life changes over the past two years and now, the actress is back on top living life to the fullest.

In 2016, Tyler’s college love and husband of 20 years, Jeff Tietjens, filed for divorce from the actress. As if that weren’t an emotional challenge to overcome, Tyler was then ordered to pay Tietjens $31,250 a month in spousal support for the next four years, plus a lump sum of $500k.

Following the emotional split, Tyler’s career then took a big turn when she walked away from CBS’s The Talk. Just eight months ago, the actress left the show to pursue other passions. “I also have three other series (Criminal Minds, hosting Whose Line Is It Anyway? and voicing a character on Archer),” the actress said during the big announcement. “People always go, ‘How do you do all that?’ And I don’t always have an answer.”

While it might sound like Tyler’s woes and 360 of a life might seem completely damaging, it all turned for the better. “The unknown can be very compelling and can be interesting. Instead of thinking about it as change, think about it as dynamism,” she told HipHollywood during the screening of Dwyane Wade’s, Shot in the Dark. 

She explained, “You can’t stay the same, your life can’t stay the same. Staying the same is staying in place and staying in place is dying slowly. For me, I always reminded myself I’m not always going to feel this way, it’s not always going to be this tuff.”

“You cannot get through this experience on this planet without a little bit of pain and you need to know that and see that it’s temporary,” Aisha said. “My life is so interesting now and it wouldn’t have been without going through the stuff that I’ve been through. It’s been good for me; all this change.”

The actress is not only the star of some major network shows, but she also is about to launch her new cocktail line, Courage and Stone. “It’s been a really really exciting process,” she told us. “It really came out of my love of cocktails, my love of going to great bars and then going home and being like ‘I don’t know how to do all this.'”

Tyler then admitted that she was a whiskey girl at heart and that when she left the Talk “Julie Chen put me in a whiskey of the month club. She she’s doubled my collection in the last couple of months.”

Set to releae late spring early summer 2018.
