Actors Who Host Annual Prime-Time Celebration of Their Own Unique Talents Fail to Clap for Lowly Wardrobe Person
At the 88th Annual Academy Awards ceremony Sunday, a select group of fabulously wealthy, culturally-isolated celebrities inexplicably neglected to properly recognize the contributions of a non-actor.
Although Jenny Beavan bagged the Oscar for Best Costume Design 2015 to commemorate her work on Mad Max: Fury Road, The Huffington Post UK huffed that Beavan, 66, was not regaled with nearly the enthusiasm that possibly the most entitled, self-absorbed and self-righteous gathering of people imaginable lavished upon themselves.
“Look, obviously it takes all kinds to make a movie,” former Best Supporting Actor winner George Clooney admitted to DarthFranktheTank.com in a phone interview this morning. “But the costume lady? C’mon, I didn’t even know we had an award for that.”
CSI: Cyber and 2014 Best Supporting Actress recipient Patricia Arquette agreed. “Everyone knows it is us, the actors, who add all the real value to a movie. Plus, Jenny’s jacket was hideous.”
For all her artistic talent, Beavan completely dropped the ball in her acceptance speech by foregoing the traditional soapbox remark about women’s salary inequality in Hollywood or gay rights, instead offering a lame plug for the environment or something.
Reached for comment, Jada Pinkett Smith, who did not attend the ceremony, pointed out that Beavan was probably disrespected because she is not white.
