Al Pacino’s Oscar Blunder Leading To Major Confusion



Clear Facts

  • Al Pacino, the legendary actor, made a significant blunder during the 96th annual Academy Awards presentation.
  • Instead of announcing the nominees for the Best Picture category, Pacino skipped that part entirely, leading to confusion among the audience.
  • The actor’s awkward behavior, including a failed attempt at a Shakespeare joke, has led to suggestions that he should receive an award for the worst presenter.

Al Pacino, the renowned actor known for his roles in films like “Scarface,” had a less than stellar performance at the 96th annual Academy Awards. His task was simple: announce the nominees and the winner for the Best Picture category. However, Pacino had a different plan in mind.

The actor failed to mention the nominees for the most prestigious award of the night. Instead of listing the films in contention, he skipped this part entirely. His announcement, “Here it comes. And my eyes see Oppenheimer, yes!” left everyone in the room baffled, questioning whether it was an actual announcement.

“I’m obsessed with the way Al Pacino announced Oppenheimer as Best Picture. couldn’t have been more chaotic or confusing lol “Best Picture…uh, I have to go to the envelope for that. And I will. Here it comes. And my eyes see Oppenheimer?”#Oscars”

Pacino’s performance was awkward from the start. He appeared disheveled as he walked onto the stage to a standing ovation. The actor then attempted to make a joke about Shakespeare, which fell flat.

“Wow. What … thank you. Oh, my friends. Thank you, thank you,” he said, acknowledging the standing ovation from his peers.

“I don’t know. Should I do some Shakespeare now? That’s in order, right? ‘To be …’ no, I’m not going to do, Sorry.” he said.

The audience was visibly confused by his reference.

“Well, this is the time for the last award of the evening. And it’s my honor to present it,” Pacino said.


“Ten wonderful films are nominated, but only one will take the award for best picture. And I have to go to the envelope for that. And I will.”

Pacino’s failure to name the nominees in the Best Picture category left the cameras without a cue, eliminating the biggest movie nominees from his speech. He then fumbled with the card, mumbled inaudible and slurred words, and stumbled through the announcement for “Oppenheimer.”

The cast of “Oppenheimer” awkwardly made their way to the stage.

To give credit where it’s due, the other films nominated in the Best Picture category were “American Fiction,” “Anatomy of a Fall,” “Barbie,” “The Holdovers,” “Killers of the Flower Moon,” “Maestro,” “Past Lives,” “Poor Things” and “The Zone of Interest.”

Clear Thoughts (op-ed)

Al Pacino’s disastrous performance at the 96th annual Academy Awards is a prime example of the decline in Hollywood’s standards. A renowned actor, Pacino should have exemplified professionalism and respect for his peers during the prestigious event.

Instead, we witnessed a disheveled and confused man stumbling through the biggest announcement of the night. His failure to mention the other nominees was a blatant snub to the artists who poured their hearts into their respective projects.

The audience’s reaction to Pacino’s awkward Shakespeare joke attempt further demonstrated the disconnect between the actor and his contemporaries. One would expect a thespian of his caliber to be well-versed in the works of the Bard and to know when a joke is appropriate.

In conclusion, Al Pacino’s cringeworthy performance at the Academy Awards serves as a stark reminder that even the most celebrated individuals can falter. It’s disheartening to see a legend falter so publicly, but perhaps this will serve as a wake-up call for Hollywood to prioritize professionalism and respect for the art.

    The last award of the night, begs the question did Pacino sit in his dressing room sipping way too much single malt?

    What better way to pay homage to the commander in chief of the free world than to appear unsure where he was, mumbling and stumbling, and making ill timed jokes that fall flat. If Biden was watching, he no doubt questioned whether or not he could be in 2 places at once. No foolin’. I’m not kidding around!
