Jamie Foxx Pulls a Steve Harvey at the Golden Globes to Support 'Straight Outta Compton'
By John Boone
This year’s Golden Globes are officially out of control.
In just one of the evening’s many, many presenter bits, Jamie Foxx pulled a Steve Harvey and named the wrong winner for Best Original Score -- though, this time, he did it on purpose to prove a point: That Straight Outta Compton was seriously snubbed.
"And the winner is, Straight Outta Compton!" Foxx shouted excitedly. As the audience laughed, he said, "I'm sorry, folks. I made a mistake. It's right here on the card -- I take full responsibility. It's right here on the card. I apologize to everyone in Compton. I apologize to Ice Cube.”
For the record, the real winner was Ennio Morricone for The Hateful Eight.
As you no doubt remember, Harvey caused Miss Universe pandemonium when he accidentally named the wrong winner -- crowning Miss Colombia over Miss Philippines -- and was forced to correct the mistake live on air. Jane Lynch parodied the moment when she hosted the People’s Choice Awards earlier this week.
Moments after his “gaffe,” the Django Unchained star returned to the stage to introduce his daughter, Corinne Foxx, as Miss Golden Globe, and it proved to be quite emotional.
“This young lady never asked me for money. This young lady never asked me for anything. This young lady’s never been in trouble," the 48-year-old actor explained. "This young lady deserves this moment. She was here when she was 10 years old, when she was in the fifth grade and she came with her father to this event.”
“This young lady is the love of my life. This young lady is absolutely my heart,” Foxx concluded. “She is Miss Golden Globe. This young lady’s name is Miss Corrine Foxx.”
Speaking of stunts, Jaimie Alexander told ET on the Golden Globes red carpet that she is planning an “adrenaline stunt” for her wedding:
