Oscars Messes Up Best Picture Award; Cue Conspiracy Theory

Welcome to live television, where everything you say is captured, and candid moments become more candid than we anticipated. Last nightLa La Landwas awarded best picture, only to have the award redacted from them and then presented to the original winner,Moonlight.We witnessed another Miss Universe blunder; this time with no Steve Harvey present. Okay, can someone answer me this: if the winners are explicitlyprintedon the award cards, how can you possibly mess this up? It is literally right in front of your face and all you have to do is read it.
Here is my conspiracy theory. This is all for rating spikes. Yeah sure, the mistake happened at the very end of the award show but this is all a ploy to get more viewership in general. We’ve seen it at Miss Universe and now The Oscars. People are going to be expecting these types of mistakes now at award shows. I wouldn’t be surprise if for the next award show, ratings double as they’re about to announce the major award at the end of the night. This only makes for better television, and now people can really root for the apposing film, or actor, or musician, or whatever because, hell, anything can happen.
Can you imagine at the Grammy’s, Daft Punk or Taylor Swift or Adele getting their album of the year award snubbed from them. It would be awkwardly cringe-worthy and we wouldn’t want to look away from the TV screen one bit. The reactions on their faces would be priceless and meme worthy. Kanye could actually be correct next time he barges on the stage and boasts his opinion. Call me crazy people, but I definitely think I’m on to something here. How many of you are going to look up the movie trailers now after watching this? Don’t lie. We’re more intrigued to go look up this movie now. Boom. Mind blown, drops mic, I’m Big Dad. Don’t be surprised if this becomes a common trend.P.S. Miss Universe Twitter handle coming in hot, post awards.
And this never gets old
We are so, so, so, so, so close to the end of this *horrific* 366 days. I can almost taste the sweet freedom that I am naively...
