You Didn’t See Javier Bardem and Josh Brolin Kiss At The Oscars Because Producers Didn’t Know It Was Coming
Though ABC won’t comment on why Oscar viewers on Sunday night missed the on-stage kiss between presenters Javier Bardem and Josh Brolin, the telecast’s producer Bruce Cohen, who is a ‘mo and had some terrible idea about how to attract The Youngs, will: “It [the dance and the kiss] was unscripted, and the plan in the truck was always to cut to Penelope in the audience applauding Josh’s and Javier’s introduction, so that is what happened, just as they were starting to dance. Josh and Javier’s moment (I saw them start to dance, but, to be honest, I have no idea if they kissed — that’s the first I’ve heard of that) would have made a great TV moment, but since no one knew it was coming, we cut to the gorgeous Mz. Cruz as planned. By the time we cut back from her close-up, James and Javier were walking to the podium.” Wasn’t this after Melissa Leo won Best Supporting Actress and said “fucking” on air? They should’ve kicked on a ten-second tape delay, which would’ve provided enough buffer to catch J&J’s smooch.
