How Do You Explain a Goof Like the Oscar Foul-Up of All Time?

Goof is an understatement, don’t you think?  How would Warren know he did not have the right card? Why would there be an extra card? Tweeters are all over this as expected.

I love that Warren Beaty knew better and made Faye Dunaway read La La Land 😂🤣😂🤣

    1. Amen to that. Though, frankly there was not a great choice. I think that’s the only reason he won. I voted for his opponent, but I am registered Republican! Like many others on both parties. I did not like either candidate. I’ve voted D 3 out of the last 4 presidential elections, though. 🙂 So much for being fiscally conservative. 🙂 There’s not a party for me! 🙂

        1. And in what part of the world do you live? I’m still sticking with my nickname of Ladybug. 🙂 My real name either means a derivative of Mars, the god of war or little Martha (my mother’s name). I think ladybug fits. 🙂 My husband calls me Marshamallowpie, which is a sweet cookie-candy. I like his name for me best! 🙂 Enjoy your status of Ladybugdom and write away! I’m Always Write. 🙂

          1. You have a beautiful life .. I am a lucky bug. You can call me lucky. I wish happy nights. You come to my page. I am writing from Turkey. Turkey is the most beautiful country in the world. Sea sand is a paradise with sunsets and historical monuments. Religious tourism such as Anne Meryem and Noehl Baba are also important places; Turkey. People are charming, full of happiness. From which country do you write. 🙂 🐞🐞🐞

          2. I am from California, USA. I have heard that Turkey is lovely. One of our teachers from our school traveled there years ago. I have been as far as Greece, which is very much like California in climate and beaches. We lack a lot in history! 🙂

          3. Turkey is surrounded by the sea on three sides in the east of Greece. Mediterranean, marmara aegean and black sea are our seas. The most important cities of Turkey are the capital Ankara istanbul Izmir and Antalya. History is rich. We have works of the Binzans empire. Turkey is a state of democratic law, bearing many historical riches. In the field of health, many developments in Turkey also come from foreign countries to treat patients. My Turkish is a paradise. I recommend you come.

    1. The emotion is so clear in his face. It must have killed him! but good for him! 🙂 Thanks for taking the time to visit and comment, and follow my blog. I appreciate it! 🙂 I’m a friend of Sylvia’s, which is how I found your blog. 🙂

    1. Blogging has had an amazing effect in my life. Not only have I learned so much, but it opened opportunities that I could never have foreseen, including my trip to Australia to meet up with two of my blogger friends, Carol and Leanne. Who would guess that would happen? I think you are a friend of Sylvia, if I remember. She is another person I’d love to meet some day. Who knows where blogging will eventually lead. I’d love to hear your story of what blogging has done in your life. I’d bet it is just as amazing. 🙂


      1. I started blogging 4 years ago and it wouldn’t be an exaggeration to say it’s been life-changing. From the people I’ve met – both in the real world and online, to introducing me to photography as a new passion, and sharpening my interest in – well, everything.

        It’s impossible to explain the attraction of blogging to someone who isn’t a blogger. My husband and none of my ‘real world’ friends really ‘get’ it.
        … but that’s ok 🙂

        1. I know. My husband commented today that he wondered when I was going to be growing into the computer. My friends range from hostile about it to being able to see the benefit to following every word I write and a few even make a comment or two. 🙂

    1. It was unbelievable. No goofs. Some of the folks were so FUNNY! The male student of the month walked up unfolded his speech notes, smiled and said, “Thank you.” Left his notes on the podium and sat down. The emcee picked up the notes and said, “That’s what his notes said – thank you!” The crowd roared. My friends who came from out of town loved it. It was warm and full of love. One young man who received an award for Youth Mentor of the Year said, I’ll never forget what coach Ainley always taught us. (Coach Ainley is in the audience as Life time Achievement Award Winner) “This is the most important thing you should practice every day.” Long pause. “Hygiene!” the award winner shouts. “You need to shower every day!” The crowd went wild. My friend Margaret laughed until the tears rolled. It was so much fun. Wish you could have been here. 🙂

      1. Sounds like ecstatic fun!! I wish I could have been there too- Sir was away on a business trip and I had to stay behind to watch after the creatures. Gah, it sounds absolutely wonderful. Thank you for sharing a slice of it with me, I can just imagine it. TOO many chortles to count, dear friend. 😀

  1. Congratulations on becoming woman of the year, Marsha. That is quite the achievement. This year was the first time I ever watched the Oscars (we usually don’t have TV) and just when I was telling Mark how well everything seemed to be organized, this happened. Unbelievable. Even at the highest level, people make mistakes. It shouldn’t surprise us! I love Denzil’s comment.

    1. Thanks so much Liesbet. It is quite an honor. I rarely watch the Oscars. I don’t know why we did, but it was good to watch how the pros handled it. WOW! How embarrassing would that have been. I don’t think I could have gotten up in the morning. 🙂
