We can all agree that Amy Adams should have been nominated instead of Emma Stone, then won Best Actress, but if we can’t agree on that, let’s just agree that Amy Adams’ look fantastic and I’m not sure why those aliens left in Arrival unless they’re sending her dick pics right now.
Who the hell else knows what else is gonna come about the 2017 Oscar today. Maybe Carrie Fisher is alive and won Best Actor. We just don’t know what’s real anymore. Until then here’s a bunch of photos from the red carpet when it was a simpler time during the Oscars.
The 2017 Oscars isn’t done taking L’s this morning, as we learn that an image of a person used in the “In Memoriam” segment of the show isn’t actually dead.
Janet Patterson, an Australian costume designer and four-time Oscar nominee (“The Piano,” “Portrait of a Lady,” “Oscar and Lucinda” and “Bright Star”) passed away in October 2015. Her name and occupation were correct in the montage, but the photo used was of Jan Chapman, a still-living Australian film producer.
“I was devastated by the use of my image in place of my great friend and long-time collaborator Janet Patterson. I had urged her agency to check any photograph which might be used and understand that they were told that the Academy had it covered. Janet was a great beauty and four-time Oscar nominee and it is very disappointing that the error was not picked up,” Chapman told Variety by email. “I am alive and well and an active producer.”
Shout out to interns everywhere.
IF ANYONE FROM THE IN MEMORIUM IS STILL ALIVE PLEASE LET US KNOW
In what might be the greatest fuck up in Oscars history besides Gwyneth Paltrow winning one, WarrenBeatty and Faye Dunaway were given the wrong envelope, causing them to announce La La Land as Best Picture instead of Moonlight. Watch the car crash below:
La La Land is a good movie and all, but if Moonlight didn’t win Best Picture, in 10 years we’d all look back and consider that a criminal act bordering on treason. Regardless of subject matter, it’s one of the best movies I’ve ever seen in my life. That being said, when Warren Beatty opened the thing, he clearly had the look of a man who was like, “y’all fucked up, so I’m gonna drag this out until somebody realizes what happened because everybody looking at me and I don’t wanna read this shit oh please god help” then Faye Dunaway snatched it out of his hand, then Emma Stone said she had her envelope the whole time, then Twitter went full Alex Jones. If I was Donald Trump, I’d tweet them my sincere thanks for dominating the news cycle for two weeks while I pass a law to kill all dolphins or whatever is next on his list.
Humbled. And once again: congrats to Moonlight. A truly beautiful picture made by some even more beautiful people. https://t.co/sOP1K0EiwW
