President Trump Blasts Best Picture Oscar Mix-up on Politics
President Trump likes to tweet and has complained Oscar in the past years.
Yesterday he simply blasted the Best Picture mix-up at Sunday's Academy Awards on politics.
In an interview with the Breitbart news website, Trump said the announcement of La La Land as Best Picture and subsequent announcement Moonlight had actually won by mistake was because of producers’ focusing so hard on politics.
“I think they were focused so hard on politics that they didn’t get the act together at the end,” Trump told Breitbart. “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.”
What’s said is many parts of the Academy Awards ceremony seemed aiming at President Trump, from Jimmy Kimmel's gibes to a speech by an Iranian filmmaker who did not attend in protest of the Administration's travel ban and other comments from both presenters and winners.
Trump has a history of criticizing the Oscars on Twitter as "boring" and a "sad joke" for years, but quitted tweeting last night. The host Kimmel tried to spur Trump to comment with a tweet during the ceremony, but Trump didn't show the interest, although a former campaign spokeswoman spoke up in response.
Meanwhile, a news in the Wall Street Journal Monday indicated Twitter may be partly to blame for the mix-up. A managing partner at Price water house Coopers LLP, overseeing the awards ceremony, tweeted with a celebrity photo minutes before giving the wrong envelope to actor Warren Beatty, the Journal reports.
