Goldberg Embarrassed By Brolin Mix Up

Comedic actress WHOOPI GOLDBERG was left red-faced while hosting a recent movie awards ceremony - after she introduced JOSH BROLIN as his famous father, JAMES.
The Oscar-winner presented Wednesday (14Jan09) night's 100th annual National Board of Review of Motion Pictures ceremony in New York, where she mixed up the W star with his dad, Emmy Award-winning actor/director James Brolin.
And when Brolin took to the stage to collect his Best Supporting Actor gong for Milk, he laughed off the gaff, telling the audience: "That's how f***ing famous I am! I just whispered in her ear, 'What's the matter with you?' She said, 'I don't know - I'm high!'"
But Goldberg insisted on making up for the misstep, quickly adding, "I want to apologise to Josh Brolin. Josh. Josh. Josh. Not James. I don't know what happened - I do know how to say his name. I'm sorry."
