Oops! Mariah Carey accidentally steals Meryl Streep’s seat at Golden Globes

Paul Drinkwater/NBCMariah Carey inadvertently became Meryl Streep’s seat filler last night at the Golden Globes. The singer tweeted that she accidentally stole the actress’ seat.

“Got caught mingling on the way to the loo during a commercial break.. took the first seat available, happens to be right next to Steven Spielberg,” Mariah wrote. “Cut to next commercial break, guess who comes back to her seat…”

An embarrassed Mariah then had to apologize to the iconic actress, but Meryl was nothing but gracious.

Mariah tweeted their exchange, “(me) Dear Meryl, please forgive me!!! (MERYL STREEP) You can take my seat any time!”

Both women were nominees last night, but went home empty-handed. Mariah was nominated for Best Original Song for The Star and Meryl was up for Best Actress for The Post.
