'The Hateful Eight' director Quentin Tarantino accepted an award on behalf of composer Ennio Morricone at the Golden Globes on Sunday (10.01.16) but made multiple blunders in his speech, and confused presenter Jamie Foxx with the use of the word "ghetto"
Quentin Tarantino appeared to confuse Jamie Foxx during his acceptance speech at the Golden Globe Awards on Sunday (10.01.16).
The 52-year-old director accepted the Best Original Score in a Motion Picture prize on behalf of composer Ennio Morricone - who wrote the score for his latest western 'The Hateful Eight ' - and seemingly left Foxx bemused with the use of the word "ghetto".
Speaking about Morricone, Tarantino stated he is: "My favourite composer, and not just in that ghetto of movie composition."
He added: "I'm talking Mozart, I'm talking Beethoven, I'm talking Schubert."
But Foxx, who presented the award, immediately made clear his puzzlement at the use of the word which Americans often associate with housing slums that are populated with minority groups.
Taking to the mic after Tarantino left the stage, Foxx said sternly: "Ghetto?"
Another blunder made by the director during his speech, was when he wrongly claimed Morricone had never won an award in the US.
He said: "Ennio Morricone has never won an award for an one individual movie that he's done. He has in Italy! But not in America."
However, the composer had previously won two other Golden Globes and the director's error was quickly picked up on social Twitter.
Collider News wrote: "Pssst... Quentin Tarantino: This was Ennio Morricone's third win at the #GoldenGlobes, so your movie wasn't his 1st.(sic)"
While a fan tweeted: "Quentin Tarantino at #GoldenGlobes. And just like that, Sean Penn is no longer the biggest buffoon in Hollywood. (sic)"
