At first, some Golden Globe Awards 2017 viewers couldn't tell if Sofia Vergara was kidding or really couldn't pronounce "annual." She introduced Sylvester Stallone's daughters as co-Miss Golden Globes and made a joke about it being an "anal" -- er "anus" -- tradition. She winked to the camera, since it was just a second-language joke in line with her famous "Modern Family" character, Gloria.
Some viewers laughed at the joke, but others found it in poor taste, especially since the girls she was introducing -- Sophia, 19, Sistine, 17, and Scarlet, 14 -- are only teens:
Once with anal was enough then had to add anus? Who's writing for her?? https://t.co/pz32JutJik

#GoldenGlobes "Anus"! It's funny because Sofia Vergara is foreign! Can we go back to Hugh Laurie's speech, which was genuinely funny?

@goldenglobes in really bad taste to mock a second language speaker's English : the anus/anal/annual "humor" of SV

@Soniagm28 no I laughed when she said anal too but then when she said anus I figured it was staged
