On one hand, Lupita Nyong'o isn't the easiest name to pronounce. On the flip side, the woman has already won an Oscar and has consistently been the most-buzzed about star at every Hollywood event she attends.
So when you're a reporter in the entertainment industry, there's really no excuse to mispronounce the moniker of People's Most Beatiful Woman. However, many apparently didn't do their homework before going live on air.
Jimmy Kimmel capitalized on their bloopers in a video montage where he pieced together clips of various anchors butchering the 12 Years a Slave star's name and hilarity ensues as the reporters fail to correctly state the moniker of the Yale alum.
"Lupita is unquestionably beautiful but her name is not easy to pronounce, which made it a tough day for our nation's news anchors," the late night host explained.
