Oscars 2015: Academy President talks 'Dick Poop' and pulling 'a John Travolta'
Even right before the Oscars, Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs can’t live down that time she said “Dick Poop.”
Isaacs, who will give a twominute speech in the middle of the ceremony, made her flub when she was revealing that cinematographer Dick Pope was nominated for his work on Mr. Turner. “People are going to see me and think, what is she going to say next,” she told EW‘s Nicole Sperling. “Is she going to pull a John Travolta?” Travolta, of course, called Idina Menzel “Adele Dazeem” at last year’s ceremony.
As for that infamous morning she recalled, “when I started talking, I just went ummm,” she said. “When I got off the stage my husband told me I was trending.”
