In the aftermath of what was arguably the most memorable screw-up in Oscars history, there may be a lesson to be learned: Do Your Job.
Liberal celebrities were so busy poking fun at President Donald Trump’s policies on Sunday night that even the PricewaterhouseCoopers accountants responsible for putting the correct envelopes in the the presenters’ hands took their eyes off the road.
In an interview with Breitbart on Monday, Trump explained the real cause of the inevitable crash.
As most of America knows by now, “La La Land” was incorrectly announced for Best Picture by two clueless actors on the Dolby Theatre stage in Los Angeles. The actual winner, of course, was “Moonlight.”
Trump said that perhaps a little less attention to politics and a little more attention to detail might have avoided the humiliating mix-up.
“I think they were focused so hard on politics that they didn’t get the act together at the end,” he said.
And the end was memorable. After an evening of Trump-bashing, snarky asides, tweet-mocking, political statements during acceptance speeches, digs at Trump’s daughter Ivanka and a tasteless attempt at bathroom humor, the evening closed in Keystone-cops chaos.
Hollywood veterans Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway were clearly perplexed at the mistake and there were plenty of apologies to go around. At that moment — a complete trashing of what was supposed to be the highlight of the evening — only one person was laughing. And he who laughs last, laughs best.
Even entertainment magazines focused on the politics of the show rather than the entertainment highlights. Saying that “it only took only a few minutes for the Donald Trump bashing to begin,” The Hollywood Reporter had the honestly to admit that this season’s awards shows had been “used” by celebrities to tout their opinions about the president.
And Trump summed up the general feeling pretty well.
“It was a little sad. It took away from the glamour of the Oscars,” he told Brietbart. “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.”
Trump’s succinct assessment of the Oscars is spot on. Ultimately, these people exist to entertain us. That’s their job. When they cease to entertain, we’ll find someone else. That’s how the business works.
Memo to Hollywood: everyone is entitled to an opinion. But keep it off the stage that I stayed up until midnight to watch.
P.S. Do Your Job.
