Robert De Niro seemed just a bit out of sorts after losing out on the Best Supporting Actor Award at the Golden Globes.
De Niro was up against Robert Downey Jr., Charles Melton, Mark Ruffalo, Ryan Gosling, and Willem Dafoe for the award.
De Niro perked up when he heard the name “Robert” announced, but when they finished reading off the name, he seemed a bit perplexed as to how he did not win.
After seeing the video, De Niro seemed ready to jump out of his seat before he realized that it was the other Robert in the room that won the award.
De Niro was up for the award for “Killers of the Moon,” while Downey Jr. was up for his role in “Oppenheimer.”
De Niro did not win the award, but he did get plenty of ribbing from the host, Jo Koy, who had more jokes that landed flat than got a laugh.
Predictably, Koy hit De Niro over the fact he managed to get his 45-year-old girlfriend pregnant.
De Niro took the ribbing well, laughing off the jokes, but that was not the case for everyone.
One of the worst parts of the night for Koy was when he made a joke about Taylor Swift that fell completely flat.
Koy joked, "The big difference between the Golden Globes and the NFL? On the Golden Globes we have fewer camera shots of Taylor Swift.”
The camera then went to Swift, who was hardly amused and just took a sip of her drink, and barely anyone in the room laughed. Even Koy had to admit the joke bombed.
While Talking to GMA3 on Monday, he stated, "I think it was when the Taylor [Swift] one was just a little flat. It was a weird joke, I guess. But it was more on the NFL, you know what I mean? I was trying to make fun of the NFL using cutaways and how the Globes didn’t have to do that.”
