Material, girl!

Sofia Vergara stole Alaska’s act at the Golden Globes

We hope Sofia Vergara is feeling like Melania Trump the morning after the Republican National Convention.

At last night’s Golden Globes, Vergara was on hand to introduce Sylvester Stallone’s daughters — Sophia, Sistine, and Scarlet, which is already sounding a little weird. The three girls were sharing the title of Miss Golden Globe, which we did not know was a thing but there you go.

And boy does Sofia need some new material. Whoever wrote her introduction basically just had her get up on stage in a very fancy dress and say the word “anal” quickly followed by “anus.”

Get it? Because she’s not from here — it’s hilarious!

Actually, it wasn’t. It was awkward and weird, which you may relive below:

But wait.

Haven’t we heard this act before? Yes, and from a much more credible source: Alaska Thunderfuck.

Here’s Alaska’s crowning moment from RuPaul‘s Drag Race All Stars Season 2. Anything sound familiar?

Alaska even has a rather work unfriendly single and music video called “Anus,” and it’s perfect in the way that Alaska is perfect.

It’s high time awards show writers stop pilfering the material of our drag royalty!

Also, even if you wouldn’t call the move a “steal” per se, the whole “funny accent broken English” joke is a bit tired regardless.

      If you watch earlier episodes of “Modern Family”, her accent is not as severe as it is now. She’s been making it worse to pander to her audience.

      She looks beautiful, actually very much like one Margaux Hemingway
      after watching the video clip, sadly her moment was all staged, her accent is a little too over done. Just watch her facial expression as a seasoned actress she knew she couldn’t pull it off it only made her look as if she clumsy trying to hard to be funny in a flopped moment.

      Before attacking Sofia Vergara, folk need to remember that the intro bits are written by WRITERS. While she performed the bit, someone else wrote it. Keep that in mind.

      I refuse to be upset about something when the person is willingly allowing themselves to be made fun of. Sorry, it just makes no sense to be more offended than the butt of the joke, especially when said “joke” says her lines and then goes home a millionaire.

      @BigRedEO: Or, as she’s gained popularity, she hasn’t tried to Americanize her accent as much as she used to.

      Gay men are always the trend setters in Hollywood. I think Elizabeth Taylor said something to that effect. I stopped watching Modern Family because of sofia’s annoying voice. It’s a great show but she drives me up the wall. And she’s on too many commercials, too! Argh.

      Couldn’t you just tell us what Sofia and Alaska said? I can’t get the videos to play.

      @he_bgb, the basic crux is a play on the words “annual” versus “anal”, and in Sofia’s case, using her accent as a reason for the perceived “miscommunication

      DAVID GRANT You are sooo petty. It was hardly the same line.

      @He BGB: Most of what passes as trend setters today, aren’t – with the exception of Tom Ford.

      It’s a bit of a STRETCH to think this way about “anus” puns, as those puns have already been INSERTED into the ANNALS of literature. Alaska said it herself, “Anusthing is possible.”
