#1 At the Oscars 2015

This years Oscar nominations were announced yesterday and the announcement of the nominations got many people laughing because Academy president Cheryl Boone accidentally called the cinematographer Dick Pope, Dick Poop. See the video above.

#2 At the Oscars 2014

This isn’t the first time it’s happened either, last year John Travolta got it very wrong when he tried to announce Idina Menzels name at the 2014 Oscars

#3 On a game show

This guy on wheel of fortune didn’t just say the name wrong, he said a whole different name all together

#4 At your own wedding

This guy who was holding his wedding speech and accidentally confused his wife’s name for one of his mates names…oops. Reminds us of that friends episode where Ross says the wrong name when saying his vows.

#5 On Australia’s Next Top Model

On this season of Australia’s Next Top model, the presenter got told the wrong information when announcing the winner and got told the other girl had won after she had already held her thank you speech. Awkward. Watch the full video here

#6 When presenting an award to the president

Another award presentation mishap. This time by Jennifer Lawrence. You will probably just be here for 5 minutes now re-watching her facial expression after the realises she’s said the ex presidents name completely wrong
