Live events always have some awkward moments, and the 73rd annual Golden Globes had more than a few of them, but perhaps none more so than when presenter Jamie Foxx did his best Steve Harvey ala Miss Universe announcing flub joke while presenting the award for Best Original Score.
First, he said the winner was "Straight Outta Compton," which wasn't even nominated. Fake apologizes. And then lets co-presenter, Lily James, announce the correct winner, Ennio Morricone.
Writer and director, Quentin Tarantino, picks up the award for "The Hateful Eight" winning composer, Ennio Morricone, and soon after, things get even more awkward as the director attempts to sing Morricone's praise by saying, "As far as I am concerned, he is my favorites composer. I don't mean movie composer, that ghetto. I'm talking about Mozart. I'm talking about Beethoven ...that's who I'm talking about."
Afterward, Foxx can't help but question Tarantino's choice of words, approaching the mic, and shaking his head with a laugh, while saying, "Ghetto?"
Alright. So audiences got a bad joke, a diss to all movie composers, and a not so kosher racial comment all within a two-minute span. Nice Job, Golden Globes!
