Faye Du­n­away opens up about Os­cars snafu

Metro USA (New York) - - Gossip -

Faye Du­n­away is fi­nally open­ing up about ye olde Os­cars mixup and she would like you to know she feels very, very bad.

The ac­tress ap­peared on “NBC Nightly News” and chat­ted with Lester Holt to tell Mid­dle Amer­ica all about it. “[Beatty] took the card out, and he didn’t say any­thing,” she said. “He paused. He looked over at me, [then] off­stage. He looked around. And I fi­nally said, ‘You’re im­pos­si­ble.’ I thought he was jok­ing. … War­ren’s like that. He kind of holds the power and makes peo­ple — a dra­matic pause. But it’s part of his charm.” I think we have dif­fer­ent def­i­ni­tions of “charm,” m’lady, but OK.

Af­ter two ag­o­niz­ing min­utes, the mis­take was cor­rected and Barry Jenk­ins’ “Moon­light” was cor­rectly an­nounced. And good thing: Like Matt Prigge says, “In the age of Black Lives Mat­ter, would this lily-white con­fec­tion, in which Ryan Gosling white­s­plains jazz to John Leg­end, steal the Best Pic­ture tro­phy des­tined for ‘Moon­light’ — the film about a poor, gay black kid strug­gling to eke by?” Nope!
