Jamie Foxx Parodies Steve Harvey Miss Universe Mistake At Golden Globes (VIDEO)
Foxx and Lily James were on stage toward the end of the first hour to present the award for Best Original Score in a Motion Picture. The actor first joked about it being the “first time” he and James were meeting. That seemed to be a reference to a tabloid story Gossip Cop busted last October for falsely claiming he was making James uncomfortable with flirting on the set of Baby Driver.
The two then continued the award presentation as normal… until Foxx announced Straight Outta Compton as the winner. Though hugely successful, that film was not among the nominees, and it quickly became clear he was spoofing Harvey mistakenly announcing the wrong winner at last month’s Miss Universe pageant. Foxx repeated some of the exact lines Harvey had said, including, “It’s written right here on the card,” and flashing it for the camera.
Eventually, James announced the actual winner as Ennio Morricone, who did the score for The Hateful Eight, and writer-director Quentin Tarantino came on to give the acceptance speech. It’s actually a big night for Foxx, as his daughter Corinne Foxx is serving as this year’s Miss Golden Globe. And shortly after this bit, he gave her a heartfelt introduction to the audience. Harvey, for the record, was not in attendance. Check out the video below!
