Well someone is having a bad morning! The highly anticipated Academy Award nominations were just held. And then (cue horror movie music)...
Academy president Cheryl Boone Isaacs announced that “Dick Poop” was up for Best Cinematography. Dick poop!
Isaacs meant to name veteran cinematographer Dick Pope for his work on Mr. Turner. Do you think she's laughing with a mimosa now or under her desk quietly sobbing?
She quickly corrected herself but Twitter went crazy over the mistake. (The handle @dickpoop actually exists. Let's all watch the follower count spike!)
IMPORTANT NOTE: DO NOT GOOGLE "DICK POOP". Just don't go there.
@Andy Honestly this wasn't Dick Poop's best work but it feels like a career award.— billy eichner (@billyeichner) January 15, 2015
Yes, you just heard the phrase "Dick Poop" on the Oscar nomination telecast. She meant "Pope." #Oscars— Pat Kiernan (@patkiernan) January 15, 2015
Overheard in the newsroom: “She made the Oscars interesting again.” #dickpoop— Jim Roberts (@nycjim) January 15, 2015
