During the Academy Awards nominations announcement, there was a minor slip-up in pronunciation. Social media is going crazy with this one.
Dick Pope received his second Oscar nomination this morning for his work on Mr. Turner. During the official announcement, Academy president Cheryl Boone Isaacs slipped as she pronounced his name. Instead of saying Dick Pope, it came out as Dick Poop. She quickly fixed her mistake, but it was too late. Her mishap has gone viral.
The silly slip-up even ended up trending on Twitter, thanks to celebrities and normal folk, alike.
I am very excited for Dick Poop's Oscar Nomination! I hope he wins!!

I think we can all agree John Travolta should present the #oscar for Best Cinematography, just so we can hear him say Dick Poop.
