Someone Accidentally Said "Dick Poop" During The Oscars Announcement

Cancel the Oscars, Dick Poop's already won.

Posted on

A slip of the tongue by the president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences' Cheryl Boone Isaacs has meant today is not a good day for Mr. Turner cinematographer Dick Pope, despite receiving an Oscar nomination.

If Twitter's reaction to the slip-up is anything to go by, the new nickname for Pope — whose long career has seen him collaborate with British director Mike Leigh multiple times — is going to prove difficult to shake.

“Now let’s analyse those Oscar nominations with our expert. What do you think?” - “Someone said ‘Dick Poop’. Someone said ‘Dick Poop’. Ha."

@Andy Honestly this wasn't Dick Poop's best work but it feels like a career award.

Pope has now addressed the slip-up after being told by the BBC he was trending worldwide on Twitter.

"I've been told about that but I don't really follow Twitter so I don't know what means," he said.

"What did they say? Dick Poop. Well, I'm going to change my name to Dick Poop.

"I'm going to change my name to it and I think they'll be so embarrassed at the Academy, they'll give me the Oscar anyway. That would be great."

He also told 5 Live he should win "for the embarrassment alone":

Fair play to Oscar nominee Dick Pope - mispronounced as 'Dick Poop' - who says "They should give it to me for the embarrassment alone."
