President Donald Trump supplied his opinion Monday on the Best Image mix-up at the Academy Awards, saying that the ceremony's focus on politics distracted from its organization and "glamour."
Trump produced the comments as component of an Oval Workplace interview with Breitbart News. The president noted that he had "been to the Oscars" previously and that one thing was "missing" this year.
"I feel they had been focused so hard on politics that they didn’t get the act collectively at the end," said Trump. “It was a tiny sad. It took away from the glamour of the Oscars. It didn’t really feel like a extremely glamorous evening… To finish that way was sad."
"La La Land" was announced as Very best Picture by actress Faye Dunaway just after she and fellow presenter Warren Beatty have been mistakenly given the envelope for Very best Actress, won by the movie's star Emma Stone. As "La La Land's" representatives had been providing their acceptance speeches, the show's producers hurried to the stage to right the error and and "Moonlight" was declared the award's correct winner.
Trump's presidency loomed more than the show as quite a few honorees gave politically-themed remarks and host Jimmy Kimmel poked fun at the president -- at 1 point publicly tweeting to him from the stage.
