Should've nailed that during rehearsals! Host Neil Patrick Harris flubbed the name of 2014 Oscar nominee Chiwetel Ejiofor's name multiple times while introducing him to the stage at the 87th Academy Awards held Sunday, Feb. 22, at the Dolby Theatre in L.A.
Harris, 41, confidently took to the stage before his mishap occurred. "Ladies and gentlemen: As Nicole Kidman, Chiwe-del Ejifor," Harris said, blundering the 12 Years a Slave actor's name. "Chiwe-Tell Ejiofor," he continued, before finally getting the British star's name correct. "Chiwetel Ejiofor and Nicole Kidman!" Harris noted.
Harris later made fun of himself for stumbling over the actor's name while introducing Marion Cotillard to the stage. The Gone Girl actor described the Best Actress nominee as someone "who knows the proper way to pronounce 'escar-gets."
Along with Ejiofor, Harris also messed up the names of numerous stars on Sunday night. He blundered the last name of Selma actor David Oyelowo, as well as the name of Wolf of Wall Street actress Margot Robbie.
