Oscars Conspiracy Theory

goof

Let me be clear I don’t really believe this conspiracy.  But I DID think of it.

If Moonlight had won, award would’ve gone to Adele Romanski, Dede Gardner, and Jeremy Kleiner, the producers.  That’s who would’ve accepted and given the speech.  White producers winning for a movie directed by a black man about black characters would’ve been a terrible look for an Academy terrified by its own dismal record on representation and diversity.  So, the Academy deliberately staged a mixup.  This had the added benefit of helping the Oscars’ other big problem, people tuning out of the telecast, by making wild unpredictable surprises a part of the experience — “you gotta watch to the very end to see what happens!”

Again, I don’t believe this theory, there’s no evidence for it and significant evidence against it.  Still sharing it.
