Best Tweet on Oscar Best Picture Error Goes to…


Humorous Billy Crystal turned in the best tweet following the revelation of an error in the announcement for Best Picture at Sunday night’s 89th Annual Academy Awards show.

I was gasping for breath over the hateful messages and tweets immediately sent over social media concerning the gaping error at the Oscars live ceremony when “La La Land” was named the Best Picture of the Year, rather than “Moonlight”, because a simple mistake occurred in the handling of presenter cards.

But comedienne extraordinaire Billy Crystal put everything in witty perspective when he declared on Twitter that it was a shame “that (announcement error) didn’t happen on election night”.

That’s funny, not hateful, not vengeful, not stupidly ignorant. His wit brought me back to Earth (for better, or worse!) Thank you, Billy C.!
