But all the positive ended with the comment of Matusow, he attacked the event and blamed “Academy Award” is a “Racist”. The vocal players have started a “race war,” in the industry.
And it is not just the Matusow, who has a problem with the content of the Award, but Selbst also raised the question about some categories it the award. There was category present in the award show Best film editing, and best sound editing. Selbst raised a question, how would one know which editing was good.
On the other hand Mike Matusow twitted on his account and said some hard words about the event. And the comment of Matusow wasn’t unjustified. At the event, La La Land was mistakenly announced as the best picture of the year. And the entire team of movie went on stage to take the award. After that the host realized that it has made the wrong announcement and the actual winner of the award is movie Moonlight.
Matusow said, how could happen, can anyone imagine this type of mistake can take place accidently. According to the comment of Matusow, the activities of the Academy were intentional.
