Normally the Oscar nominations are uneventful, with the only controversy coming in the form of snubs. But this year’s nomination ceremony had a bit of a Freudian slip, if you will.
Cheryl Boone Isaacs, president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, made a “verbal typo” when announcing the nominations for Best Cinematography. Dick Pope got a nod for Mr. Turner, which in and of itself is not exactly worthy of note. But in announcing the nomination, Isaacs didn’t say “Dick Pope,” she said the now trending online “Dick Poop.”
Whether or not there actually is a “Dick Poop” in the movie business is something you are free to Google on your own, just make sure no one is looking over your shoulder when you do.
