Cheryl Boone Isaacs Says 'Dick Poop' At Oscar Nomination Announcements

UPDATE: Dick Pope has a great sense of humor. "I've been called a lot worse," he told USA Today. "I don't think twice about anything like that. I am happy to be nominated." And later, he added, "I feel sorry for the lady who made the mispronunciation." Bravo, Dick Pope.

EARLIER: The year's most surprising Oscar nomination was a cinematographer, Dick Poop, er sorry, we mean Dick Pope. Academy president Cheryl Boone Isaacs misspoke while announcing Thursday's nominations with Chris Pine, and though she meant to honor longtime cinematographer Dick Pope for his work on "Mr. Turner," her mispronunciation caused the Internet to break down in giggles.

Dick Poop thinkpiece.
