(CNN)Dame Judi Dench is one of the industry’s most venerated actors, but could she pull off playing a bagel? A cinnamon bun?
At Sunday night’s 24th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards, Dench was a nominee in the movie category for outstanding performance by a female actor in a leading role for her royal turn as Queen Victoria in “Victoria & Abdul.”The problem was the slide, which aired as the nominations were read.

Instead Frances McDormand was the toast of the town, taking home the award for her performance in “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.”The SAG Awards aired on TNT and TBS, which like CNN are part of Turner Broadcasting. CNN has reached out to the SAG Awards for comment.
