Sunday night, the 89th Academy Awards were held by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. The ceremony, which honored some of the best films of 2016, was held in Hollywood, CA at the Dolby Theatre.
When the 2017 Oscars ended, there was a fiasco in the air that was even bigger than the Steve Harvey Miss Universe mistake. Presenters gave the Oscar for Best Picture to the movie La La Land. In the end, the award was taken back to give to the real winner, Moonlight.
On Monday morning, President Donald Trump put in his two cents about the sideshow at the 2017 Oscars, according to Breitbart:
President Donald Trump, in an exclusive interview with Breitbart News in the Oval Office, said that the Academy Awards failure on Sunday evening was due in large part to Hollywood’s obsessive focus on politics—attacking him, generally speaking.
Trump told Breitbart News in the exclusive interview that the Oscar fail may have been avoided had Hollywood’s finest focused less on attacking him and more on getting the event’s details right.
‘I think they were focused so hard on politics that they didn’t get the act together at the end,’ President Trump said. ‘It was a little sad. It took away from the glamour of the Oscars. It didn’t feel like a very glamorous evening. I’ve been to the Oscars. There was something very special missing, and then to end that way was sad.’
The Oscars comprised just one part of a lengthy interview, which ranged in topics from healthcare to tax cuts to immigration to trade and more. The rest of the interview is forthcoming here on Breitbart News.
