I really feel so bad for everyone involved in the La La Land/Moonlight fuck up and I mean everyone.
I feel bad for the interns/low level employee who had to hand out those duplicate envelops because the academy is probably going to push this all on them and ruin any future they could have in the industry just to save their own ass.
This sucks for Warren Beatty because for some reason he’s exclusively getting the blame right now????
This sucks for Faye Dunaway because she has to deal with the fact that SHE was the one who read it.
This sucks for La La Land because I can’t imagine how awful it feels to have such an amazing moment taken from you, you could tell the guy who said it belongs to Moonlight was ready to completely break down
and this SUCKS for Moonlight because this will now be a bigger story then their win, this will forever be attached to the movie. It’s forever connected and it may even completely overshadow it and it sucks for all the people involved in Moonlight because of this fuck up they didn’t really get their moment or their full time making their speeches. Everything about this win for them is now significantly more about the fuck up. That’s so outrageously unfair.
This was so awful on so many different levels and the more I think about it the worse I think is it. What a devastation all around.
