Jenna Bush Hager on Monday apologized for a verbal flub in which she mistakenly combined the names of two Golden Globe-nominated films—both with predominantly black casts—during a red-carpet interview the previous evening. “So you’re nominated for ‘Hidden Fences,’” Bush Hager said during a chat with Pharrell, who was nominated for his soundtrack work for Hidden Figures. (Fences, starring Denzel Washington and Viola Davis, was also nominated for several other awards.) “When I was interviewing the incomparable Pharrell, who I adore, I accidentally—in the electricity of the red carpet, which I’ve never done one before—called ‘Hidden Figures’ ‘Hidden Fences,'” Bush Hager said on NBC’s Today show. ” I have seen both movies, thought they were both brilliant. I’ve interviewed casts for both of the movies and if I offended people I am deeply sorry.” She added: “And what I didn't want to do is make anyone lesser than who they are.” Later in the evening, Michael Keaton made the same “Hidden Fences” flub while presenting an award.
