Cinematographer Dick Pope Responds to Being Called 'Dick Poop' at the Oscars 2015 Nominations Announcement
“You know what, I have been called a lot worse in my time,” the Oscar nominated cinematographer said to USA Today. “I don’t think twice about anything like that. I am happy to be nominated.”
“You don’t need to explain it to me. I have had it explained one hundred times,” Dick added. “I feel sorry for the lady who made the mispronunciation. I have never been on Twitter and I don’t know what trending means. I am completely naive. All I know is that I have a lot of emails here saying I am trending on Twitter. They might as well be saying I am landing on the moon, as far as I am concerned.”
As for his nomination, Dick added, “We’re all very happy. It’s wonderful news. But I represent a whole company and the whole film. I represent the people who work on it. We are all very pleased. Delighted.”
