Dennis Quaid Gets Mocked for Butchering Saoirse Ronan’s Name at Golden Globe Nominations

“Sheesha Ronan” got a surprise nomination for “Brooklyn,” and quickly became a Twitter trend

Dennis Quaid was the surprise hit of Thursday’s Golden Globe Award nominations, for all the wrong reasons.

The veteran actor totally butchered Irish actress Saoirse Ronan‘s name while reading her nomination for Best Actress in a Drama.

“Sheesha Ronan, ‘Brooklyn,'” the presenter said — and the Twitter world went wild.

Just like when John Travolta infamously renamed Idina Menzel as “Adele Dazeem” at the Oscars in 2014, Quaid quickly became the butt of endless jokes.

Dennis Quaid and John Travolta should totally do a Hooked on Phonics ad,” one witty Twitter user wrote.

“Is Sheesha Ronan the new Adele Dazeem?” was a common question.

Another user had a great new film suggestion for the actor: “Dennis Quaid in ‘The Sheeshaw Redemption.'”

For those who are still confused, the correct pronunciation of 21-year-old Ronan’s name is “Seer-sha.”

Hopefully everyone will learn how to say it before the Golden Globes air on Sunday, Jan. 10, 2016, at 8 p.m. on NBC.

Quaid is now is a select club with Travolta and academy president Cheryl Boone Isaacs, who mispronounced cinematographer Dick Pope’s name as “Dick Poop,” during the Academy Award nominations earlier this year.
