It’s a bit hard to ignore when “Dick Poop” keeps floating up and down the list of Twitter’s trending topics all day long, but there’s a good reason for it. When Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences President Cheryl Boone Isaacs was announcing this year’s nominations, she briefly slipped up and called Oscar-nominated cinematographer Dick Pope “Dick Poop.”
As for Dick Pope, the famed cinematographer told USA Today, “I have never been on Twitter and I don’t know what trending means. I am completely naive,” adding, “They might as well be saying I am landing on the moon, as far as I am concerned.”
If anything, Boone Isaacs’ goof-up gave the beautiful and talented Adele Dazeem of “Frozen” a second shot at Twitter fame.
