John Travolta got a chance to redeem himself at the 2015 Oscars. The actor famously mispronounced “Frozen” star Idina Menzel’s name as "Adele Dazeem" during the 2014 ceremony, but this year, the two presented the Academy Award for best song together.
“Benedict Cumberbatch is not only the best name in show business, it’s also the sound you get when you ask John Travolta to pronounce Ben Affleck,” host Neil Patrick Harris joked before introducing Menzel.
“Please welcome to the stage my very dear friend Glom Gozingo,” Menzel said.
Travolta came out and revealed that he had practiced and finally knew how to say Menzel’s name. “I deserve that, I deserve that. But you, you my darling, my beautiful, my wickedly talented Idina Menzel.”
“You did it! That was so good!” Menzel said. “Not like it’s going to follow me around for the rest of my life or anything.”
However, that doesn’t mean Menzel trusts Travolta with pronouncing new names. When Travolta started to announce the nominees, the "Frozen" singer cut him off.
“Want me to do it?” Menzel interrupted. She read off the nominees for best song, but luckily, the winners’ names weren’t too hard to pronounce. “Glory” from the film “Selma” won. John Stephens (John Legend) and Lonnie Lynn (Common) wrote the music and lyrics.
