Forget about Adele Dazeem, this year’s Oscar buzz is all about Dick Poop. During this morning’s nominations announcement, Academy president Cheryl Boone Isaacs flubbed when listing Mr. Turner cinematographer Dick Pope as a contender. It was certainly a defining moment in Pope’s career.
Considering thousands of Twitter users now know him as “Dick Poop,” should Pope change his name?
I’m just happy The Academy is finally giving Dickpoop the recognition it deserves.

Some executive is screaming “GET ME A MEETING WITH THIS UP-AND-COMER DICK POOP” into their phone right now.

Really unfortunate this whole ’Dick Poop’ thing is taking away from other deserving nominees like Robert Poovall and Bradley Pooper.

She pronounced all those others and then said Dick Poop instead of Pope.

I’m sorry but your life is shit if the name you mispronounce ends up coming out as Dick Poop

Even if Pope suffered embarrassment today, he might get a sympathy Oscar from the Academy on February 22. They owe him, big time. Watch the hilarious mistake from this morning. (You’re off the hook, Travolta… for now.)
