They don’t call her a Hollywood legend for nothing. Goldie Hawn poked fun at herself by pretending that she couldn’t read the teleprompter as she and Amy Schumer presented the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Comedy or Musical Film on Sunday, January 8. Watch the hilarious clip above!
The 71-year-old actress stunned in a metallic black off-the-shoulder Prabal Gurung gown with long sleeves and appeared to be squinting out toward the cameras as she bungled a few key words, much to the delight of the audience.
Hawn substituted “tainted” for “talented” in reference to the actors nominated in the category, and read aloud “mystical” for “musical” when describing the awards. Schumer, 35, who stars alongside Hawn as her daughter in the comedy Snatched, good-naturedly corrected her. At one point, Schumer even asked Hawn’s longtime partner, Kurt Russell, whether the Death Becomes Her actress had forgotten her glasses at home, drawing chuckles from the audience. (He mouthed back that she never wears them.)
Although the duo's bit was a hit with the crowd, Twitter users, on the other hand, had a more mixed reaction to Hawn and Schumer’s presenting schtick.
Just because Goldie Hawn is making us laugh by acting ditzy doesn't mean she's not a strong woman. It's called "comedy." #GoldenGlobes

The pair’s chemistry and friendship has been well documented throughout the filming of Snatched. In October, the actresses landed themselves in hot water after they created a spoof of Beyoncé’s “Formation” while filming in Hawaii.
