The Cause of the Academy Award Snafu Revealed!

I didn’t see last week’s Academy Award presentation mainly because I think as Americans we spend way too much time celebrating ourselves.

An award for this, an award for that; it seems like there’s one for just about every activity that you can think of.  And since they’re become so relatively common–maybe they’ve always been and I didn’t notice–that they feel progressively less meaningful.

And that’s not to say that they’re worthless, though they’re seem to be doing their damnedest to become so.

Then I heard about the Oscar snafu and wondered how it could have happened, especially since people of color having been overlooked by the Academy for a very long time now.

Though having seen the video below, I think I get it.
