Tracy Morgan blames 'Soul' mispronunciation on thinking about pizza

Tracy Morgan blames 'Soul' mispronunciation on thinking about pizza

Soul  was impressive at Sunday night's 78th Golden Globes Awards, but not quite impressive enough to stop Tracy Morgan from daydreaming about pizza.

The 52-year-old actor presented the award for best original score, and when announcing Soul as the winner, Morgan pronounced it as "Sal":

"Sorry SOUL," Morgan tweeted. "I was thinking about the pizza I was going to get from my guy SAL on the way home!!"

Soul also claimed victory for best animated motion picture:

These two wins are only a drop in the overflowing bucket of awards recognition Soul has gotten. The Disney and Pixar film took inspiration from Coco and Inside Out to execute an entirely unique story about middle school music teacher Joe Gardner as he tries to save his soul from a near-death experience in time to make it to his long-awaited big break in jazz.

Joe is voiced by Jamie Foxx. The star-studded voiceover cast also boasts Tina Fey, who co-hosted the Golden Globes with Amy Poehler, as well as Angela Bassett, Phylicia Rashad and Graham Norton. Pete Doctor ( Inside Out, Up, Monsters, Inc.) and Kemp Powers (One Night in Miami) are credited as directors and writers.

As for the best original score in question, it was composed by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross. The soundtrack also included songs by Grammy-nominated Jon Batiste.

Megan Armstrong (@megankarmstrong) is a writer with previous work appearing in places such as Billboard, Bleacher Report, GQ and others. She's most interested in writing about people and how they live their lives, through the framework of music, entertainment and sports.
