The Academy President Accidentally Nominated Someone Named 'Dick Poop'
By John Boone
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.
