The
awards
ceremony
had
not
been
telecast
and
the
winners
were
announced
on
Twitter.
However,
despite
the
low
key
ceremony,
the
organizers
landed
in
trouble
when
a
congratulatory
tweet
called
the
winning
musical
West
Side
Story,
a
comedy.

The
tweet
read,
“If
laughter
is
the
best
medicine,
[West
Side
Story]
is
the
cure
for
what
ails
you.” Steven
Spielberg’s
West
Side
Story
which
is
a
musical
won
the
Best
Motion
Picture
for
a
Musical
or
Comedy.

The
tweet
was
later
deleted
and
updated
where
the
“laughter”
was
replaced
with
“music”
and
mocked
themselves
for
the
bad
tweet
using
a
GIF
of
Hugh
Laurie
saying,
“Thank
you,
this
is
obviously
a
terrible
mix-up.”

Meanwhile,
netizens
had
been
mocking
the
controversy-riddled
Hollywood
Foreign
Press
Association
for
the
mix-up.
One
Twitter
user
wrote,
“This
tweet
is
the
funniest
thing
to
ever
happen
in
the
history
of
the
world.” Another
user
added,
“Even
the
Golden
Globes
tweet-bot
is
drunk
and
corrupt,
you’ve
got
to
respect
the
brand
consistency.”
