People’s Most Beautiful Person of 2014 is Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o, unfortunately for news anchors around the U.S., who have no idea how to pronounce her last name. Jimmy Kimmel didn’t even need to trick anyone to get this montage of stuttering local newsreaders.

Nawango? Inyongo? Nye-ongo? Whatever, as long as you make sure to pause after “Lupita,” so everyone can see you struggle to get it right.
