- Tiffany Haddish stumbled over more than a few nominee names
- Twitter can't decide if she was deeply entertaining or embarrassing
- Twitter is also outraging over Tiffany Haddish not being nominated
Ka-lu-ya. Simple? Not for Tiffany who managed "Daniel Kaluwa. Kallelujah," even as Andy Serkis attempted to help her out. "He know his name," she said finally, giving up. The comedienne also had trouble with 'Missouri' while reading out Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri in multiple categories.
Maybe she's just not a morning person - the Oscars are announced at the crack of dawn Pacific Standard Time. Oh, Tiffany. Top level Adele Dazeem-ness here. Twitter can't decide if she was deeply entertaining or embarrassing - tweets are leaning towards the former.
Tiffany Haddish literally butchered Daniel Kaluuya's name. imagine being nominated for an Oscar while the hosts act like they don't know you. this is the sunken place. #OscarNoms— Neg. (@_Negarrr_) January 23, 2018
Tiffany Haddish was embarrassingly brutal reading these Oscar nominations. It's called rehearsal. Try it next time.— James Crampton (@JimCramptonWPG) January 23, 2018
@TiffanyHaddish was a fabulous, hilarious messy mess and also completely validated my belief that it's ok to get drunk before noon. Meet me for mimosas, we'll switch to sangrias around 11.30— dallasbear (@DallasTheBear) January 23, 2018
Tiffany retweeted this one:
Yall think Tiffany Haddish running around barely able to speak English is funny?— Frank Glizzy (@themrwest) January 23, 2018
Best part of the Oscar nominations was Tiffany Haddish pronouncing Daniel Kaluuya and Daniel KOOL-YAY— luke (@lukeonfilm) January 23, 2018
Poor Tiffany Haddish had so much trouble with those names and meanwhile showoff Andy Serkis cruises through Saoirse like it's nothing. #Oscars— Peter Gwinn (@gwinns) January 23, 2018
Does Tiffany Haddish know how to read? why would they have someone like her read the oscars nominations this morning if she seems illiterate and can't read a simple screen— Christian Giancarlo (@CGiancarlo79) January 23, 2018
Urgent question: Is Tiffany Haddish going to be presenting an Oscar and if not, can she please, Academy? However else will you compete with last year's Best Film mix-up? Kallelujah
