Donald Trump has at last spoken out about the Oscars, saying all the emphasis on politics undermined the glamour of the evening and led to the infamous mix-up over Best Picture.
He told Breitbart:
"I think they were focused so hard on politics that they didn't get the act together at the end. It was a little sad. It took away from the glamour of the Oscars. It didn't feel like a very glamorous evening. I've been to the Oscars. There was something very special missing, and then to end that way was sad."
