* Warning, Hide Your Children Now – Hollywood celebrities appear in this story *
A glaring mistake occurred this year with the Academy Awards. So far, we’re the only ones who noticed. Full Disclosure: Jayne, my wife, noticed this before I did. She’s swift to spot problems!
The Same Story Was Nominated Twice!
Two identical movies were nominated for Tinseltown’s greatest award, Best Picture.
The movies are:
- 12 Years a Slave
- Captain Phillips
12 Years a Slave is about a man named Solomon Northup who was Shanghaied on his job.
Captain Phillips is about a man named Richard Phillips who was Shanghaied on his job.
You Now See the Problem Now
I’m sure that I don’t have to point out that 12 Years a Slave has the same letter and space count as Captain Phillips.
I’m sure that I don’t have to point out that Solomon Northup and Richard Phillips have the same number of letters in their first and last names.
Both are crimes committed on one race by another race.
I told you they were identical in every way.
