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.

Finally! Taraji P. Henson Confirms Relationship With NFL Baller Kelvin Hayden

Published

Taraji is finally letting the world know what it already knew – she’s in a relationship with NFL cornerback Kelvin Hayden. Henson dished the (cold) tea while on Essence’s Yes, Girl! podcast saying that the reason she kept it a secret was because she’s a private person.

“I’m not the type to blast my personal business. But, you know, I think that’s important for people to know. I’m happy. I’m very very happy. I just am,” the “Empire” actress shared.

Rumors first circulated in December 2015 about Henson and 34-year-old Hayden, who played for the Chicago Bears and the Indianapolis Colts, after photos surfaced of the pair holding hands in Miami. Though Hayden has appeared on her Instagram feed, the Golden Globe winner never confirmed the intimate details until now.

“You know, we’ve been together for two years. No one would really know that because I don’t really blast my info like that. But I’m very happy,” she said.

Taraji girl we could tell. The Hidden Figures actress even broke out singing, “Finally! It has happened to me,”—quoting the CeCe Peniston‘s song “Finally.”

Henson also revealed the couple will be celebrating the holidays together with the new puppy Hayden gifted her with as an early Christmas present.

“Big #KBall with Lil squirt #KBall watching daddy brush his teeth! 😩😂😂😂,” she wrote, teasing a photo of her boo and new pup.

And speaking of Christmas, in case you missed it Taraji hosted her “White Hot Holidays” special on Fox Wednesday night. Peep the clips of Henson having some fun with her celebrity guests including Method Man, DJ Khaled, Neicy Nash, Salt-N-Pepa and The Ying Yang Twins.
