ABC had to bleep Mark Mangini when he took the Oscar stage
Maybe he should have squeezed it in the thank you crawl.
Sound editor Mark Mangini dropped the F-bomb when he took the stage Sunday to accept an Oscar with David White for Best Sound Editing on Mad Max: Fury Road.
Mangini raised his arm and yelled ‘F— yeah’ before accepting his prize.
It was the first bleep of the night by ABC’s Standards and Practices Department.
Backstage, Mangini realized he may have crossed the line. “I’m gonna hear it from my wife, so that’s about as big a regret as one can have.”
Added White, “It’s pretty intense up there, you know… It’s typically Australians that do the swearing. So the fact that I didn’t swear, I deserve the Oscar just for that.”
