When Hollywood stars celebrate their Oscar wins at the annual Governors Ball bash on Sunday, Donald and Melania Trump will be hosting their own White Property Governors’ Ball in Washington, D.C.
The scheduling conflict means Trump will probably not be watching the 89th Academy Awards live on Tv.
“The 1st lady has put a lot of time into this event that is going to happen and welcoming our nation's governors to the capital,” White Home press secretary Sean Spicer told reporters Wednesday. “And I have a feeling that that's where the president and the initially lady are going to be focused on on Sunday night, and so we'll go from there.”
Trump did not tweet about the Academy Awards final year. Instead, in involving appearances on Sunday morning shows and a speech in Alabama, Trump directed at least a single of his Feb. 28 tweets at his then-presidential opponent, Sen. Marco Rubio, calling him a "lightweight no show Senator from Florida."
In 2015, Trump deemed that year's ceremony, hosted by Neil Patrick Harris, an "insult" to earlier Oscars. He also got technical, criticizing even the ceremony's graphics.
What ever happened to the good old days of The Academy Awards. This show is an insult to the previous, just plain negative!
Worst graphics and stage backdrop ever at the Oscars. Show is terrible, seriously BORING!
In 2014, Trump declared the awards ceremony “AWFUL” and compared it to the web page for then-President Obama’s Economical Care Act. Ellen DeGeneres hosted the Oscars that year, although "12 Years a Slave" won very best picture and stars like Matthew McConaughey and Lupita Nyong’o took dwelling leading acting honors.
Was President Obama in charge of this years Academy Awards - they remind me of the ObamaCare site! #Oscars.
I'm possessing a actual hard time watching the Academy Awards (so far). The last song was terrible! Kim really should sue her plastic surgeon! #Oscars
This can not be the the Academy Awards #Oscars AWFUL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
He also declared the evening "amateur evening," criticized DeGeneres' longtime producer and seemed to imply the awards show was "dishonest."
Which is worse and which is far more dishonest - the #Oscars or the Emmys?
Little Andy Lassner, who lives his life via Ellen and has nothing at all else going for himself, is having a seriously poor night! #Oscars
Ellen is sadly having a difficult time with her lines. #Oscars
That year the future commander-in-chief also retweeted supporters who appeared to indicate Trump's no-holds-barred Oscar tweets would make him a great president.
"@CashMoneyBonas: @realDonaldTrump I wish I was watching your presidency campaign instead of the oscars"
"@reza_rezvani: @realDonaldTrump You need to run for President. This nation requirements you. #Trump2016" zip. I know! #Oscars
Trump told his Twitter followers in 2013 that he was tweeting that year’s ceremony, hosted by Seth MacFarlane, due to “popular demand.”
By well-known demand, I will be tweeting on the incredibly tainted Academy Awards tonight!
Despite writing in a 2012 tweet that McFarlane getting named Oscar host was “something new that should really be enjoyable,” Trump referred to as the ceremony "quite average" the morning following.
...All round, the Academy Awards had been incredibly typical at greatest.
In among his evaluations of McFarlane, Trump named “Django Unchained,” a finest picture nominee, the “most racist movie I have ever noticed," slammed the British accent of Daniel-Day Lewis, who won greatest actor for "Lincoln," and deemed the Oscar set "extremely tacky."
Trump was so angry about the Oscars in 2012, hosted by Billy Crystal, that he took to another type of social media, YouTube, to vent.
Trump, seeking straight into a camera at his desk in Trump Tower, known as for a safety guard to be fired after Sacha Baron Cohen, dressed as his character in “The Dictator,” sprinkled what he claimed to be ashes on Ryan Seacrest during E’s Oscars red carpet coverage.
Trump also known as the ceremony "boring," mentioned people have been sleeping via it and made use of the occasion to take a dig at Vanity Fair, whose editor, Graydon Carter, has a extended-running feud with Trump.
“Nobody enjoyed it. There was no good feeling and it was actually like symblomatic [sic] of what occurred to Vanity Fair,” Trump mentioned. “...It used to be a fantastic magazine. Suitable now it’s boring, just like the celebration they had.”
I hear the worst, or at least most boring, Academy Awards party this year was the @VanityFair party. It's lost (cont) //t.co/u5SS2G0Q
Just one particular year earlier, in 2011, Trump and his wife attended the Oscars. The couple also attended the Vanity Fair Oscar party at the Sunset Tower Hotel, as noticed in photographs taken at the time.
