Tiffany Haddish Mispronouncing All The Oscar Nominee Names...Is Priceless.

January 24, 2018

The Girls Trip star and comedienne Tiffany Haddish was in the process of announcing the contenders for the 2018 Oscars alongside Andy Serkis when she faced a few monikers that gave her some pronunciation trouble. Needless to say, the flubs quickly turned into hilarious TV. For example, when it was time to reveal Get Out's Daniel Kaluuya as a Best Actor nominee, she casually gave his name a makeover. "Daniel Coolye," she started. "Daniel Kalua," she attempted again. "He know his name," she quipped. "Tiffany Haddish could make reading a dinner menu fun," one follower tweeted. "Teachers, professional educators, mispronounce names on a daily basis. She's not the first celebrity to make a mistake and won't be the last. #TIffanyHaddish will be okay."

Haddish did retweet this from a fan: "Would have been cool if @TiffanyHaddish got to read her own name as a nominee and pronounced it Tiffany Haddock #OscarNoms."

Britney Spears is taking her Las Vegas "Piece of Me" show on tour around the world.  The pop star confirmed the trek on Instagram.  She's taking the show to select cities in North America, Europe and the U.K. this summer.  Spears ended her Vegas residency this past New Year's Eve after a staggering 250 performances and almost 140-million dollars earned.

Joel Taylor who starred in the Discovery Channel’s Storm Chasers show has died at the age of just 38. His friends shared the sad news on social media. No word on the cause of death but it wasn’t related they say to his storm chasing.
