Ellen DeGeneres Mocks Oscar Snub As “Alternative Facts” (VIDEO)
Ellen DeGeneres’s animated movie Finding Dory wasn’t nominated for an Oscar, but according to “alternative facts,” it was. The talk show host used her monologue on Wednesday to mock the Trump administration’s latest phrase while also discussing the Academy Awards. Watch the video below!
As Gossip Cop reported, the 2017 Oscar nominations featured many snubs, including Pixar’s Finding Nemo sequel, which failed to score a nod for Best Animated Feature. “Every year there are more snubs and people are like, ‘Oh no, movies should of been nominated and they weren’t,'” DeGeneres said on her show. “Unfortunately, Finding Dory did not get nominated. According to alternative facts, it did,” she joked.
DeGeneres is of course referencing a new term coined by Kellyanne Conway, the Counselor to President Trump. During a “Meet The Press” interview on Sunday, Conway claimed that White House press secretary Sean Spicer gave “alternative facts” when he inaccurately described the number of attendees at Trump’s inauguration.
DeGeneres also joked about the films nominated for Best Picture at this year’s Academy Awards, saying that the movies “range from sad all the way to extremely depressing.” The talk show host went on to note that La La Land is tied with Titanic for the most Oscar nominations, adding, “One is two people spontaneously breaking into song, the other one has a boat sinking in the middle of the ocean. One of them is my worst nightmare, the other is Titanic.” Watch the video below!
