This morning, as Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences president Cheryl Boone-Isaacs proudly announced the nominations for Best Cinematography for the 87th Academy Awards Nominations, she said “Dick Poop.”
The nom was intended for Dick Pope, cinematographer of Mr. Turner, and Boone-Isaacs quickly caught and corrected her mistake. But she did it right after correctly pronouncing Lukasz Zal and Ryszard Lenczewski (fellow nominees), which makes it all the funnier.
We’re not the only immature ones who found this hilarious:

“Now let’s analyse those Oscar nominations with our expert. What do you think?” - “Someone said ‘Dick Poop’. Someone said ‘Dick Poop’. Ha."— SimonNRicketts (@SimonNRicketts) January 15, 2015
"Dick Poop." - Cheryl Boone Isaacs ... and Cheryl Strayed.— Joe Reid (@joereid) January 15, 2015
If Poop — err, Pope — wins on the big night, hopefully whoever presents the category has better luck. (Actually, hopefully they don’t, because another Dick Pope flub would be just as funny.)
