Wes Anderson Made A Really Awkward Joke About HFPA Members’ Names

Jeffrey Tambor gave one of the best acceptance speeches at Sunday’s Golden Globes. Wes Anderson, however, did not.

After winning the award for Best Picture, Musical or Comedy, the writer and director of The Grand Budapest Hotel took charge of the microphone and quickly began reading names. Anderson’s gimmick was this: claim to not thank the people who worked on the film, then proceed to thank the individual members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. As the audience giggled nervously, he named names, forcibly mispronouncing many of them due to the implied these-weird-names-are-hard-to-pronounce shtick.

Thanks for helping the image of small, scrawny white American males everywhere, Wes.
