Truth rating: 10

By Michael Lewittes



The TV broadcast for the 2014 Independent Spirit Awards kicked off with a HUGE editing gaffe when Reese Witherspoon and Matthew McConaughey presented the first award for “Best First Screenplay.”


Witherspoon was onstage when Bob Nelson was announced as the winner for his screenplay for Nebraska, but the editors of the TV broadcast did a cutaway to the actress sitting in the audience and clapping– at another time during the awards show — and then cut back to Witherspoon onstage with McConaughey.


And so Gossip Cop presents the Independent Spirit Awards with the “Worst Editing” trophy.
