Dick Poop Is the Breakout Star of the Oscar Nominations
Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs accidentally mispronounced the name of Best Cinematography nominee Dick Pope and the Internet love it
We have our first Adele Dazeem of 2015.
During Thursday morning’s Oscar nominations announcement, Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs accidentally mispronounced one of the nominees in the Best Cinematography category.
While presenting with Chris Pine, Isaacs inadvertently nominated a man named “Dick Poop” for his work on Mr. Turner, instead of Dick Pope – the British cinematographer who actually worked on the film.
The president quickly fixed her slip, but not before the Internet took notice. Twitter now has a bad case of the giggles thanks to Isaacs. Hundreds of Tweets proclaiming Dick Poop, who is now a trending Twitter topic, the unofficial winner of the Oscars have already filled the social network.
Dick Pope isn’t bothered by the odd online fame that has come along with his Oscar nomination.
“You know what, I have been called a lot worse in my time,” the cinematographer told USA Today. “I don’t think twice about anything like that. I am happy to be nominated.”
