Emmy Awards fail: 'Big Bang Theory' nomination 'inadvertently left off' list  2 Months ago

Source:   USA Today  

The Emmy Awards are still two months away, but already the ceremony has suffered an embarrassing faux pas: They forgot to include a nominee. And then they misidentified the episode nominated.

Late Thursday, the Television Academy confirmed that the "Big Bang Theory" was inadvertently omitted from the best directing in a comedy series category. The episode is "The Bow Tie Asymmetry" (not "The Bow Tie Symmetry," as the release originally said). It's about Amy and Sheldon's wedding and it's directed by Mark Cendrowski. 

Oops!

It's just the latest fail for a major award ceremony. Here are some other mistakes we've seen during nomination and winner announcements in recent years.

This goes down as the biggest awards flub ever. At the 2017 Academy Awards Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway presented the Best Picture envelope to "La La Land," the filmmakers began to accept the award, and then realized that the honor was meant to go to "Moonlight."

In December 2015, host Steve Harvey accidentally named Miss Colombia the winner of the Miss Universe pageant. The crown had to be taken off of her head -- she was actually the runner-up. Miss Philippines was the real winner.

2015 was a big year for misreading cue cards. In January of that year, Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences President Cheryl Boone Isaacs mispronounced Oscar-nominated cinematographer Dick Pope's name, calling him "Dick Poop."

John Travolta butchered Idina Menzel's name as he introduced her to the Oscar stage in 2014 to sing "Let It Go" from "Frozen."

Will there be more award show fails at this year's Emmys? We'll find out when the show airs live from Los Angeles on Sept. 17.
