First Adele Dazeem, now “Dick Poop.”
In announcing the Oscar nominations Thursday morning, Academy president Cheryl Boone Isaacs made a serious flub on the name of “Mr. Turner” cinematographer Dick Pope, mispronouncing his name as “Dick Poop.”
It didn’t take long for a clip of the flub to hit the Internet, though Isaacs quickly corrected herself, and “Dick Poop” quickly became a trending topic on Twitter.
Sony Pictures Classics, the studio behind “Mr. Turner” tweeted a tongue-in-cheek message correcting Isaacs.
This is Pope’s second Oscar nomination. See the clip below.
