No one's suggesting they shouldn't have acknowledged a mistake was made and give a satisfying explanation (which they did). But since it's an awards show (and there's no need for "only" or "silly" - it is what it is), which should be all about celebration and fun, why not act as grownups with a sense of humor and embrace it all? It seems there's this fear, a mental avoidness of the unscripted (or the unorthodoxly scripted), the random nature of real Life which is being deeply infused into popular culture nowadays - both in it's products (films, in our case) and in the way people expect reality to be reflected in the media. So these unrehearsed, truly spontaneous, candid incidents (and true to life representations of them in films) becomes rarer and rarer. And when they happen, people seem to be truly unequipped to deal with them. I'm still one of those who crave for them to occur, so I found this "catastrophe" extremely welcome. All they should do it lightly slap this guy on the hand for being naughty and pray for something like this, or preferably totally different, to happen next year.
Please, bring back Sacheen Littlefeather and David Niven's streaker!
