Jennifer Coolidge makes hilarious flub at the Golden Globes

‘The Oscar goes to’: Nervous Jennifer Coolidge makes hilarious flub as she presents at Golden Globes in bombshell Dolce & Gabbana dress

Jennifer Coolidge made a hilarious flub while presenting at the 2023 Golden Globe Awards on Tuesday.

The White Lotus star, 61, was getting ready to present the award in the best supporting actor in a TV musical/comedy or drama category, when she read out: ‘So, the Oscar goes to’ before quickly realizing her mistake.

‘Oh, no, no, wait, Golden Globes,’ she corrected herself, before giving the award to Abbott Elementary star Tyler James Williams.

Hilarious: Jennifer Coolidge made a hilarious flub while presenting at the 2023 Golden Globe Awards on Tuesday as she called the Golden Globe award an ‘Oscar’ 

The audience roared with laughter at the Legally Blonde icon’s viral moment.

Before the hilarious error, Coolidge explained how she was nervous to accept the role of a presenter at the awards show. 

She said she received a call from a person affiliated with the show: ‘I said, oh, my god, that is such an honor, thank you, thank you so much. Yes, I would love to, and I hung up on her.’ 

‘And the Oscar goes to’: The White Lotus star, 61, was getting ready to present the award in the best supporting actor in a TV musical/comedy or drama category, when she read out: ‘The Oscar goes to’ before quickly realizing her mistake

She continued with her story, saying she got an anxiety attack when thinking about presenting.

‘And then I thought about it for a little bit, and I just had a complete anxiety attack. And I got very, very nervous and I said “oh, my god, I’m not doing this so I called Cara right back.”‘

‘And I said, Cara, I’m so touched that you would want me to do something, but, listen, I’m going to tell you something, there is no way that I’m going to make it from behind the curtain all the way to the podium without breaking my skull, you know, because of all these overwaxed floors and stuff.’ 

Realized her mistake: ‘Oh, no, no, wait, Golden Globes,’ she corrected herself, before giving the award to Abbott Elementary star Tyler James Williams

Funny: She also joked that she was nervous about accepting the presenter role due to fear of tripping: ‘There is no way that I’m going to make it from behind the curtain all the way to the podium without breaking my skull’

The person on the other end reportedly said back: ‘Jennifer, then why don’t you just wear a pair of crocs.’

To that Jenifer quipped: ‘Well, are you kidding me with my Dolce & Gabbana dress, all those crazy Italians would lose their minds.’

She continued to list the reasons for why she shouldn’t present, adding that she might lose her place on the teleprompter and not know what to say.

Blondie: The blonde bombshell wore her tresses parted in the middle and styled into bouncy curls for the night

She added that her ‘biggest nightmare’ is the pronunciation of people’s names.

‘I can’t do it. Once I say someone’s name the wrong way, I’m sc****d. Like you hear it that one way, and you can’t undo it.’

Coolidge then explained how she had trouble pronouncing Bill Nye’s name at a dinner party one night, before mispronouncing Kaley Cuoco’s name.

Earlier in the night the actress stunned on the red carpet in a form-hugging black sequin Dolce & Gabbana dress. 

Sensational: The beauty matched her dress with black manicure and added more sparkle with a number of silver rings

Mingling: She was also seen mingling with actress Julia Garner, 28, who looked incredible in a pale pink dress

The Golden Globes ceremony is being held once again at The Beverly Hilton hotel in Beverly Hills following a one year break from screens amid controversy over ethical lapses and a lack of diversity.

Now the embattled Hollywood Foreign Press Association – which puts on the Globes – is seeking a primetime comeback.
