Kirsten Dunst gets mistaken for Jennifer Aniston in awkward TV moment at Golden Globes

Posted on in MUSIC VIDEOS

There was some seriously awkward stuff going down on the Golden Globes red carpet. Most recently, Giuliana Rancic might have just called Kirsten Dunst by Jennifer Aniston’s name??? Let’s investigate.

If you watch this video, you can see what’s going down. Ryan Seacrest finishes his interview with Jennifer and says he’s going to toss it to Giuliana. Then, Giuliana said: “My favorite actress, Jennifer Aniston, nominated tonight!” But she was standing with Kirsten Dunst…

It was incredibly awkward, TBH. Kirsten handled it like a pro. It doesn’t look like she even flinched at the mixup, which makes us think it was something else…

If you rewatch the clip, Giuliana’s lips don’t match whatever the voiceover is saying. It looks like there was a technical difficulty, because she and Ryan were obviously on different feeds. That doesn’t really matter in the eyes of the internet, though, because people were still talking about it on Twitter.

We’d venture to guess that Giuliana definitely knew Kirsten’s name. Who doesn’t know Kirsten Dunst?! Especially because Giuliana did mention Kirsten’s nomination later on in the interview. There are a lot of awk red carpet moments, but we’re chalking this up to bad technology. Either way, it’s hilarious.
