Music producer Pharrell Williams was left confused on the Golden Globes 2017 red carpet when a reporter mixed up the title of his nominated film. NBC's Jenna Bush Hager had intended to ask the musician about his work on Hidden Figures but accidentally said "Hidden Fences".

Ahead of the awards show at The Beverly Hilton, California on 8 January, Hager stopped Williams, 43, on the red carpet to ask about his production on the Hidden Figures soundtrack. Reacting to Hager's question: "So you're nominated tonight for Hidden Fences," Williams grimaced and looked unimpressed but gracefully answered without mentioning the reporter's mistake.

Trump says he's not surprised at 'liberal' Meryl Streep's 2017 Golden Globes attack

  Trump says he's not surprised at 'liberal' Meryl Streep's 2017 Golden Globes attack Donald Trump has responded to Meryl Streep's Golden Globes 2017 speech, which slammed the President-elect and specifically referenced disabled journalist Serge F. Kovaleski and an incident that saw Trump "mock" him during his electoral campaign. Speaking to the New York Times, Trump admitted that while he didn't see the awards ceremony broadcast on NBC, he was "not surprised" to have been attacked by "liberal movie people". After receiving the Hollywood Foreign Press Association's Cecil B DeMille Award at the ceremony, Into The Woods actor Streep never used the president-elect's name, but said: "There was one performance this year that stunned me. It sank its hooks in my heart. Not because it was good; there was nothing good about it. But it was effective and it did its job. It made its intended audience laugh, and show their teeth. "It was that moment when the person asking to sit in the most respected seat in our country imitated a disabled reporter," she continued, remembering back to when Trump twisted his arms, reportedly in imitation of Kovaleski during a speech in November 2015. "It kind of broke my heart when I saw it, and I still can't get it out of my head, because it wasn't in a movie. It was real life." But Trump has disputed Streep's statements, explaining: "I was never mocking anyone.

It appears Hager unknowingly mistook Hidden Figures for Fences, the period drama starring Denzel Washington and Viola Davis, which is also nominated. Viewers watching the Golden Globes pre-show quickly took to Twitter to mock Hager over the error.

One joked: "#HiddenFences is not a movie. Excuse me, I'm going to watch LALA By The Sea. #GoldenGlobes #FAIL," while another quipped: "I can't wait to watch Hidden Figures. Fences was incredible and no, there is no such film as Hidden Fences but..."

Joining in on the joke, another commented: "Hidden Fences and straight outta selma were my fave movies of 2016," while another said: "#HiddenFences starring Octavia Davis and Denzel Jackson." Criticising Hager for the lack of research and preparation, one critic weighed in: "The #HiddenFences incident is more than an innocent mistake. It's a lack of research or care for black cinema," but another sympathised with the reporter, adding: "Feel bad for the white lady that said "hidden fences" that one mistake could be it for career. It will definitely haunt her forever."

Both Hidden Figures and Fences are incredible films nominated for awards at the Golden Globes this year. Yet when Pharrell Williams hit the red carpet on Sunday night, rather than ask him about his nomination for best original score for the former, NBC presenter Jenna Bush Hager instead asked him about his nomination for Hidden Fences — a film that does not exist.

Coincidentally, Batman Returns actor Michael Keaton made a similar gaffe as he also referred to "Hidden Fences". Criticising the actor, one commented on Twitter: "Making the mistake of calling 'Hidden Figures' 'Hidden Fences' not once but twice is so ridiculous," while another said: "The whole 'Hidden Fences' thing is actually a big deal. A slip-up that's so, so indicative of the biggest problem in Hollywood."

Hidden Figures, starring Taraji P Henson and Octavia Spencer, is based on the true story of a group of African-American women who provide Nasa with key mathematical data needed to launch their first space missions. Fences, starring and directed by Denzel Washington, follows a working class African-American father as he tries to raise his family in the 1950s while battling life's hardships.

Williams produced Hidden Figures and collaborated on the soundtrack with Hans Zimmer and Benjamin Wallfisch.
