GOLDEN Globe nominations were announced on Monday and the room fell silent when Snoop Dogg mispronounced Ben Affleck’s name, among other things.
Hollywood fans have seen a variation of the mess up when Drake stumbled over Jennifer Lopez’s name and Aisha Tyler mispronounced John Mayer’s name in February.
Another possibly funnier example is when Mark Wahlberg, who plays the head of an Irish gang in The Departed’s (Trailer) 3, had the tricky words delivered to him in 2016. He said it wrong.
So Snoop, who appeared alongside the other Golden Globe nominees, took a stab at it.

Ben Affleck’s name was bleeped out in the video below
He was joined by Denzel Washington, Aishwarya Rai, and Lady Gaga (Greta Gerwig). The last two were not easy to say.
Gerwig had difficulty pronouncing Poppy Montgomery’s name (Rosie Lopez) while Franco struggled with Gerwig’s (Greta Gerwig).
“Does he say Denzel or Ben?” Gerwig said with glee when she realised just how bad it was.

“Congratulations, everyone,” Snoop suggested, after a few mumbles.
Ben Affleck, who was nominated for Best Actor for The Accountant, told the nominees, “This one’s for the new Hollywood Reporter called the SAG Awards”.
Mr Robot co-creator Sam Esmail, also nominated for The People vs OJ Simpson: American Crime Story, was silent.
Actress Natalie Portman struggled with Kerry Washington’s name
Poppy Montgomery, who stars in Denzel Washington’s Tom Hanks-starring comedy thriller A Star Is Born, looked amused.
Her husband, Dax Shepard, was mortified.
