‘BoJack Horseman’ Somehow Predicted Last Night’s Oscar Screw-Up

39 minutes ago

Netflix original shows are somehow becoming visions of the future. First, “Black Mirror” eerily predicted the rise of Donald Trump with “The Waldo Moment,” and now “BoJack Horseman” managed to predict last night’s bizarre “Moonlight” Best Picture Oscar victory in what has now been dubbed “#Envelopegate” on Twitter. On the third season of “BoJack,” which largely dedicated itself to satirizing the insanity of awards season, BoJack finds himself being considered for an Oscar nomination for his work in the movie “Secretariat.” In the episode “It’s You,” he’s elated to discover that he has indeed scored the nomination, »

La La Land” was erroneously named the Best Picture winner at the 2017 Oscars on Sunday night — but was it just one big prank by host Jimmy Kimmel?

Columnist Blasts ‘Brain-Dead’ Warren Beatty for ‘Horrific Night’ for Actors

2 hours ago

A New York Daily News column titled, “Warren Beatty completely to blame for Oscar flub — but then again, he’s just a dumb actor,” completely rips the Hollywood icon for “La La Land” being mistakenly announced as the Best Picture award winner during Sunday’s Academy Awards.  (Of course, the award really went to “Moonlight” in what was arguably the biggest fumble in the history of the Academy Awards.) “The mistake was all Beatty’s — and it’s because he’s an actor,” columnist Gersh Kuntzman wrote. “Because of said affliction, Beatty has spent his entire adult life avoiding having to think at. »

Ratings: Fox’s Animated Reruns Break Broadcast Tie (Way) Behind Academy Awards

2 hours ago

The Oscars dominated Sunday night, obviously — but we’re still a few hours away of knowing for sure where the awards show will end up historically. The below fast national Nielsen numbers for ABC’s primetime should be considered quite unstable, due to the nature of the live event. The earlier metered market ratings are actually more accurate due to time zone adjustments — read those here. And around 3 p.m. Et/noon Pt we’ll have an accurate total viewer count for the Oscars and its pre-shows.

Oscars Flub: Was the Academy’s New Envelope Design Partly to Blame? (Photos)

2 hours ago

One possible explanation for the backstage confusion that led to the epic screw-up of the Best Picture envelopes at Sunday’s Academy Awards: the new design for the envelopes themselves. The dark red envelope opened by Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty, from which they announced the wrong Best Picture winner, was a new envelope design for the show, TheWrap has learned. Invitation designer Marc Friedland and his company, Couture Communications, had designed the previous high-contrast gold envelopes for the last six Oscar ceremonies, going back to 2011. The Academy’s deal with Friedland did not continue or renew for 2017. The reason for the change was unclear. »

The Oscars and PwC Post-Envelope Flub: Can This Marriage Be Saved?

3 hours ago

The Academy’s longtime accounting firm has apologized for the envelope mixup that plunged the end of the 89th Academy Awards into chaos, but it may take more than a two-paragraph apology to repair the relationship between PwC and the Academy. On the biggest of stages, working for the client of 83 years that gets the firm formerly known as PricewaterhouseCoopers more publicity than anything else it does, the company made two huge errors that damaged the credibility of the Academy and the Oscars. First, one of the company’s two Oscars balloting leaders gave the wrong envelope to Warren Beatty, »

Oliver then dove into the talking points that Republicans will be using to pitch the closest thing they have to a plan, including refundable tax credits. »
