Playing Michael Keaton Says 'Hidden Fences' at Golden Globes After Same Mistake Was Made Earlier in the Day

Whoops.

While announcing Octavia Spencer as a Best Supporting Actress nominee for the film Hidden Figures on Sunday, presenter Michael Keaton accidentally referred to the movie as "Hidden Fences," seemingly thinking of Fences, another film with a primarily African-American cast.

Strangely enough, the same mistake was made earlier in the night by NBC's Jenna Bush Hager, who asked Pharrell Williams about "Hidden Fences" on the red carpet.

Twitter was quick to react to the two flubs, some in jest:

While others argued the mistake is sadly indicative of the lack of diversity in Hollywood.

"The whole 'Hidden Fences' thing is actually a big deal," tweeted Carina MacKenzie, writer for The Originals. "A slip-up that's so, so indicative of the biggest problem in Hollywood."
