Remembering The Oscars

The mishap at the Oscars was one of my favourite events of the year. It’s easy to think that movie stars are better than us with their perfect smiles and great hair but when it comes to it they can mess up like the rest of us.

If you missed it, Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway were given the wrong envelope and announced La La Land as the winner of the best picture award before it was taken off them and given to the rightful winner Moonlight.

Some people have taken this news story very seriously but it’s not that bad. Some rich famous people got an award and some didn’t. They’ll all be having a better year than the rest of us, so don’t feel sorry for them.

And if could have been much worse. Warren Beatty could have opened the envelope to read, “And the winner is… you have been entered into the Reader’s Digest prize draw?”

We’ve all said the wrong name before. I introduced a girlfriend by the name of my ex when I was at the Edinburgh Festival a little while back. Thankfully my ex was called Michelle, so I introduced my than partner by saying, “This is Mi… m’new girlfriend.” And I think I got away with it.

I know someone who’s other half said the name of another man while they were kissing and he didn’t raise it till after because he didn’t want to kill the mood.

It was the accountancy firm PWC who made the error. Maybe the votes were kept off-shore for tax reasons, but the wrong film was announced. Credit where it is due, the cast and crew of La La Land took the news very well, because if there’s one group of people who could really make a big song and dance about something it’s them.
