It seems that the glitz of Hollywood awards fashion is less exciting to a dog than, say, a squirrel.
Case in point: Regina King’s puppy Cornbread made some very good appearances during his interviews on the virtual red carpet at the Golden Globes on Sunday night when the dog decided to sneak into the “Golden Globes Pre-Show of NBC ”and then proceeded to postpone another Q&A with E! (on).
Many people on Twitter loved seeing the doggo casually stroll in a suspiciously placed dog bed for a nap while the director of “One Night in Miami” talked about her nominated film and was surprised in a beautiful Louis Vuitton dress.
King’s Golden Globe nomination for best director, along with Chloe Zhao’s for “Nomadland” and Emerald Fennell’s for “Promising Young Woman,” was undoubtedly momentous, as it was the first time in her tenure. award that more than one woman was nominated in the category, but Cornbread doesn’t give a damn.
And like most of us on Zoom Company calls during the pandemic, King’s interviewers had a hard time ignoring the seeming indifference of his sleepy little beloved.
“I love that cornbread over there. Your dog says, ‘Listen, Mommy looks amazing and I don’t care if it’s awards season, I’m chilling out,’ ”Karamo Brown of“ Queer Eye ”fame happily observed during King’s interview with E!
“Your dog is trying to steal the show,” NBC Golden Globes Pre-Show co-host Susan Kelechi Watson told King.
This isn’t the first time King has turned heads in an unexpected way during awards season.
In September 2020, she made headlines when she wore a “Say Your Name” t-shirt with a portrait of Breonna Taylor as she accepted the award for Best Leading Actress in a Limited Series or Movie for her performance on HBO’s “Watchmen.”
