Hollywood, California – The National Security Administration (NSA) continues to be in hot water in connection with leaks of classified information. Apparently, not even Hollywood is exempt from the monitoring of phone calls and emails by the U.S. government.
In the latest breach of secret and embargoed information, an NSA intern has intercepted an electronic document from Price Waterhouse Cooper, the official independent auditors of the Oscars, which contains the list of winners in the various categories of the 2014 Academy Awards. The announcement of winners is scheduled for March 2 during ceremonies at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood. The intern leaked the document to TMZ as well as The Adobo Chronicles.
The editorial boards of both TMZ and The Adobo Chronicles have decided not to publish the leaked information, except for “Best Picture.” The Oscar is going to “12 Years A Slave.” They have also decided to at least provide a clue as to who will win the Oscar for “Actress in a Supporting Role.” The clue: it is NOT going to be Jennifer Lawrence.
This is the second big controversy faced by this year’s Oscars. A few weeks ago, The Adobo Chronicles reported that Ellen DeGeneres withdrew from her role as host for this year’s ceremonies because the producers did not grant her request to include in her opening monologue an actual wedding ceremony with her spouse, Portia de Rossi. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences has not announced Ellen’s replacement. We wonder if NSA has that information.
