Far-left British actress Emma Watson, best known for her role as Hermoine Granger from the Harry Potter films, debuted a brand new tattoo on the Oscars red carpet Sunday night.
Perhaps making the biggest political statement of all, Watson’s tattoo reads: Time’s Up. Clearly, Watson is a supporter of the feminist movement.
There’s just one glaring issue with the tat.
Check this out…
From Daily Wire:
Actress Emma Watson, who has been a leading supporter of the Time’s Up movement, decided to show off her new tattoo honoring the movement at the Oscars on Sunday evening, but the spellchecker for the tattooist didn’t get there in time.
Watson, who got her bachelor’s degree in English literature from Brown University in May 2014, displayed a tattoo reading “Times Up” without the requisite apostrophe, prompting some to express their disenchantment with the error:
More from Sky News:
But people were quick to notice that the actress and UN ambassador was missing a vital punctuation mark from the inking – an apostrophe.
Instead of reading “Time’s Up”, Ms Watson’s tattoo says “Times Up”.
Some have questioned whether the tattoo is real, or simply a temporary piece to make a statement.
Others backed her decision to get rid of the apostrophe, with one tweeter suggesting it would look “weird just floating there”.
D’oh! Times Ya?
No apostrophe? Illegible?
Good going, Emma!
More on the 2018 awards show, which is poised to hit an all-time low in the ratings, via Deadline:
The good news did not carry over to ratings for the 90th Academy Awards, which (correctly) crowned The Shape of Water as Best Picture. Last night’t ceremony drew a 18.9 Live+Same Day rating in the metered market households. That was off 16% from last year’s 22.4 rating, which was a nine-year low. The 18.9 appears to be an all-time low for the Oscars, below the previous low ratings point for the Oscars, logged with the 2008 telecast (21.9), hosted by Jon Stewart, when No Country For Old Men won Best Picture.
Last year, those metered market results last year translated to 32.9 million viewers — also a nine-year low — and a 9.1 rating among adults 18-49. We will update with viewership and demo numbers when they become available later today.
Fox News has more:
The final political jab came when discussing the gay romance film “Call Me By Your Name.” The host noted that the film, despite being an Oscar-nominated feature, did not score big at the box office.
“We don’t make films like ‘Call Me By Your Name’ for money,” he quipped. “We make them to upset Mike Pence.”
He lauded the actual Oscar statue, noting its age of 90 and taking a swipe at Fox News viewers in the process: “Oscar is 90 years old tonight, which means he’s probably at home tonight watching Fox News.”
(In fact, according to Nielsen Media Research, the median age of Fox News is 65, meanwhile MSNBC is 66 and CNN is 59.)
He also said the Oscar, “Keeps his hands where you can see them, never says a rude word, and most importantly no penis at all. He is literally a statue of limitations.”
The host ended his opening monologue by explaining that winners are allowed to say whatever they want in their acceptance speech, encouraging people to comment on the recent shooting in Parkland, Fla. as well as other activism with regards to the #MeToo movement.
From there, the show launched into its first trophy of the evening, with Sam Rockwell taking home the Oscar for best supporting role for his part in “Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri.”
