If you didn’t watch the oscars last night, you probably think the title of this blog means I might be a little deranged.
(If so, you’re not insulting me. It’s nothing new; I hear that from my wife on a more or less regular basis).
But some people are suspicious that, whether to compliment or tweak President Trump, the stage was modeled after what passes for his coif.
For those of you who didn’t see it, here’s a picture that should explain why…
…and here is a denial statement from the stage’s production designer, David Korins, who, after describing the stage as “a shimmering, swirling symphony of sparkling blues and gold dotted with 1,250 Swarovski crystal strands painstakingly hung above the Dolby stage, weighing 1,600 pounds”, said:
“I don’t see that, but I think that people see in artistic endeavors all sorts of things. You look at paintings and sculpture and architecture and people see what they want to see. And I choose to see one of inclusion and humanity, femininity and beauty.”
Personally, I think it looks a little more like Phyllis Diller’s hair after she got caught in a rainstorm. But that’s just me.
How about you? Are you persuaded?
