Jenna Bush Hager, Michael Keaton Botch Movie Title During Golden Globes

“Hidden Fences” isn’t a real movie, but Michael Keaton and Jenna Bush Hager got two films mixed up.

Hager, an NBC correspondent and daughter of former President George W. Bush, botched the name of a movie that earned Pharrell Williams a nomination for best original score for “Hidden Figures,” calling it “Hidden Fences.” 

“Hidden Figures” is about female African American mathematicians who helped win the U.S. space race, while “Fences” is a 1950s family drama set in Pittsburgh starring Denzel Washington—and it was also up for nominations.

“If I offended people I am deeply sorry,” Hager later said. “It was a mistake, because ya’ll know I’m not perfect,” she continued, Variety reported. “I am authentic, but a human. And what I didn’t want to do is make anyone lesser than who they are. I apologize to both the cast, to Pharrell, but it was a mistake and I hope we can move on.”

Keaton made the same mistake on stage, introducing nominees for best-supporting actress.

On Twitter, it turned into a meme of sorts.

“So Jenna Bush is just merging all of the black movies tonight at the #GoldenGlobes, huh?” one user wrote.

“Pharrell’s face just held hundreds of years of whitewashing resolve,” another added.
