The Way The Stranger Things Cast Pronounced Dermot O'Leary's Name At The NTAs Is Hilarious
Absolutely the best moment of the night.
Fans have spent the last fifteen hours in a state of confusion after Stranger Things actor Charlie Heaton somehow mispronounced Dermot O’Leary’s name on live television.
IRL Jonathan Byers and girlfriend Natalia Dyer flew over to the UK to attend the National Television Awards on Tuesday night, and found themselves in a bit of a fix when the 23-year-old pronounced Dermot’s name as…. Duh-mot.
Let's get checking out an update from MTV News...
The situation went down as the pair walked on stage to present an award, with Natalia opening: “Good evening ladies and gentleman, it is such an honour to be here in the UK presenting the award for Best Drama.”
That’s when Charlie chipped in with the moment we’ve had on loop since the show aired: “Yes and hopefully by the time we’ve had a look at the five incredible shows nominated this evening, Duh-mot will have found his way back here.”
Considering Charlie did actually grow up in the UK and therefore has no reasonable excuse for not knowing Dermot’s name, fans couldn't quite work out how he'd made such an epic hash of it.
Honestly, it’s a mystery that deserves its own episode in ST Series 3 and a potential Netflix spin-off show.
Oh, Charlie. Might be time to ease off fighting demogorgon's and tune into ITV every once in a while. Still, what a moment.
