Oscars best picture gaffe sends Twitter into frenzy, Blame Russia

Does the Oscars blunder have implications for the US election result? Are Russian hackers to blame? Social media is in meltdown.

Oscar memes, gifs and hilarity are swamping social media today after La La Land was incorrectly given the best picture Oscar, when in fact Moonlight was the winner.

Organisers have been forced to apologise over the mix-up at the key moment in the ceremony, which saw the wrong envelope being opened on stage.

Some tweeters asked if the results of the US election could also have been a mistake, while others joked the awards ceremony had been hacked by Russia.

The Sixth Sense director, M Night Shyamalan, who made a name for himself with the dramatic twists in his films, joked that he wrote the ending to the 89th Academy Awards.

    Oscars In Memoriam gaffe:'dead' woman in tribute video is alive


    There's further embarrassment for the Academy as it includes an image of a living film-maker in its In Memoriam montage.

    PIERS MORGAN: The night I La-La-Laughed until I cried as Hollywood proved it wouldn’t recognize The Truth if it was hand-delivered in a red envelope


     HA HA HA HA HA…

    Sorry.

    Nope, not sorry.

    HA HA HA HA HA ..

    Let’s be honest, the greatest Oscars fiasco in history couldn’t have happened to a bunch of smugger, more deserving people.

    All night, the theme of the Academy Awards had been one of truth.

    The New York Times, America’s most self-satisfied, snobbish and unrelentingly Trump-bashing media entity led the way with a $2.5 million TV ad celebrating the very word itself.

    ‘The truth is hard,’ it began. ‘The truth is alternative facts are lies.’




    It then listed a series of things it inferred President Trump has lied about, from Russian ties and his travel ban to climate change, before ending with this comically pompous piece of cynically commercial propaganda:

    (Note: the Times is making tens of millions of dollars from its astonishingly partisan anti-Trump coverage - preaching, very lucratively, to an ever-expanding choir of subscribers desperate to gorge on its daily diet of deplorable Donald disasters.)

    ‘The truth is hard.

    The truth is hard to find.

    The truth is hard to know.

    The truth is now more important than ever.’

    It was a theme that thrilled the audience, packed mainly with equally elitist, snobbish, Hillary-loving celebrity actors.

    And as the legendary Warren Beatty strode on stage with Faye Dunaway to present the final award for Best Picture, it was a theme he gleefully seized on to round off the night:

    ‘Our goal in politics is the same as our goal in art, and that’s to get to the truth,’ he solemnly declared.

    The crowd cheered.

    Of course they cheered.

    Truth is what Hollywood’s all about, right?

    Hmmm.

    Forgive me if I laugh again?

    Hollywood tells a good story, definitely.

    But facts have never been its strong point. Time and again, movies abuse and bastardise historical events to suit its slathering need to drive box office cash.

    I don’t object to that practice, because frankly, I just want to be entertained when I go to the movies.

    But I do object when Hollywood pretends to stand for ‘The Truth’.

    Just as I object when the New York Times pretends to be an impartial newspaper.

    It’s not.

    PwC accountants who screwed up the Oscars have had to hire bodyguards after receiving DEATH threats from members of the public


    Accountants Brian Cillinan and Martha Ruiz, and their families, are being guarded after receiving threatsPictures of their homes were posted online, apparently prompting fears for their safetyTheir employers, PricewaterhouseCoopers, are paying for the bodyguards to protect themAcademy president Cheryl Boone Isaacs announced Wednesday that Cullinan and his co-worker Martha Ruiz had been fired from working any future telecastsCullinan rehearsed the ceremony so it is unclear why he was holding the Actress envelope since he knew he would not be responsible for that category 

    The bean counters behind the infamous Academy Awards envelope blunder are now being protected by bodyguards paid for by their bosses after receiving death threats.

    Brian Cullinan and Martha Ruiz have faced a barrage of abuse, leaving chiefs at their employer, PricewaterhouseCooper, fearful for their safety.

    The mistake meant that La La Land was accidentally announced as Best Picture instead of real winner Moonlight by presenter Faye Dunaway.

    Cullinan had moments before handed the wrong envelope to Warren Beatty, prompting chaos at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood before shocked audiences were told what had happened.
