Dennis Quaid is getting teased on social media for mispronouncing actress Saoirse Ronan's name while announcing her Golden Globe nomination on Thursday.

"Sheesha Ronan, Brooklyn," said Quaid, flubbing Ronan's first name. Ronan was nominated for best actress in a motion picture — drama for her role in Brooklyn.

Quaid's mispronunciation is being compared to John Travolta's mispronunciation of Idina Menzel's name. Travolta famously referred to Menzel as "Adele Dazeem" when he introduced her performance at the Oscars in 2014. After Quaid's flub, #dennisquaid began trending on Twitter.
