Gina J’s Dirty Laundry February 27, 2017

We go inside the awesome highs… and embarrassing LOWS of the Oscars and lots more in today’s Dirty Laundry.

The Oscars started off with a fun performance from Justin Timberlake but ended in a big mess after the wrong movie was announced as the winner for Best Picture! Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty argued in rehearsals over who would read the winner last night for Best Picture… and well, looks like Warren Beatty let Faye take the fall even when he knew something was wrong. Warren was handed the wrong envelope… the envelope that said Best Actress (which was Emma Stone for La La Land).

Okay so let me break it all down… there is an accounting firm company called PwC (PriceWaterhouse Coopers) that is in charge of protecting the envelopes and of handing them to the presenters. The two accountants, Martha Ruiz and Brian Cullinan, are both driven with police escorts for security purposes in separate cars to the event with identical briefcases (that’s why there a two of the same envelopes for each category).   The two stood on opposite sides of the stage with their briefcases but at the end they were seen together and Brian was posting a photo of Emma Stone with her Oscar on his Twitter account while Faye and Warren were walking out (he has since deleted the photo). Emma had her envelope with her so someone handed Warren the duplicate envelope for Best Actress.  Someone is probably going to get fired… odd thing is didn’t the voice over woman know who the winner was?  She went with it and gave facts about La La Land.

So Warren stood on stage with the wrong envelope and that’s why he looked confused and even looked in the envelope again BUT instead of saying something he passed if over to Faye who saw La La Land and she announced it! What an embarrassing moment for all.

Another mistake in the show was during the In Memorium portion where Sara Bareilles did an amazing performance…. so what was the mistake?  An Australian costume designer named Janet Patterson died but the photo shown was of her good friend, producer Jan Chapman… who is alive!

Best part of the night I thought was the tour bus people passing through… Gary and Vicki from Chicago!  Denzel Washington pretended to marry them and Vicki got Jennifer Aniston’s sunglasses!

Food was dropped down to the audience… first it was candy then cookies and doughnuts.  Mean tweets was part of the show too.  Chrissy Teigen was caught sleeping on John Legend’s shoulder and people were making fun of Nicole Kidman’s clapping … they were comparing her on Twitter to the Grinch.
