It was a big night for Gravity director Alfonso Cuaron, who won best director Sunday evening at the 71st annual Golden Globe Awards. But the Mexican filmmaker made a mistake when he went onstage to accept his award.
After Cuaron joked about his thick accent, sharing a funny story about the time Gravity star Sandra Bullock misunderstood Cuaron as saying "herpes" instead of "earpiece," the play-off music began to play.
The flustered filmmaker then went on to rattle off a few names in an effort to give key people their due and when he got to Jeff Robinov, the former Warner Bros. film chief, Cuaron accidentally said, "Steve Robinov." Robinov was a champion of the movie and was a key player in making Gravity possible.
Robinov left Warner Bros. in June 2013 after he was passed over for the top studio job, which went to Kevin Tsujihara.
NBC's Sunday night telecast had its moments. Early on in the evening, presenters Jonah Hill and Margot Robbie dealt with a teleprompter issue and winner Jacqueline Bisset let a curse word slip during her lengthy acceptance speech.
