If you missed the 2017 Oscars on Sunday, consider yourself lucky. Almost the entire 89th Academy Awards ceremony revolved around Hollywood's obsession with politics and attacking our president - but, what else is new, right?
However, it seems that celebrities probably should've focused less on their own political agendas and more on the function at hand, since the Oscars ended with the biggest and most humiliating blunder in the history of the Academy Awards!
President Trump, who has been an Oscars' guest in the past, was disappointed with the ceremony's mishap and had a lot to say about the Academy's foolish mistake.
“I think they were focused so hard on politics that they didn’t get the act together at the end,” President Trump told Breitbart News. “It was a little sad. It took away from the glamour of the Oscars. It didn’t feel like a very glamorous evening. I’ve been to the Oscars. There was something very special missing, and then to end that way was sad.”
The president, of course, is referring to the now infamous Academy Award for Best Picture blunder which made every single viewer cringe with horror.
On Sunday evening, presenters Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway wrongly announced La La Land as the recipient of the prestigious award, instead of the actual winner, Moonlight. Now, the spotlight is on accounting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers, which has overseen the ballot-counting process for 83 years.
And, now, the firm has been forced to conduct some damage control.
“We sincerely apologize to Moonlight, La La Land, Warren Beatty, Faye Dunaway, and Oscar viewers for the error that was made during the award announcement for best picture,” the firm released in a statement. “The presenters had mistakenly been given the wrong category envelope and when discovered, was immediately corrected. We are currently investigating how this could have happened, and deeply regret that this occurred. We appreciate the grace with which the nominees, the Academy, ABC, and Jimmy Kimmel handled the situation.”
While the award ceremony mishap may soon be swept under the rug, we have a feeling that President Trump isn't going to let the Academy off that easy.
