Oscars-Helen Mirren

Asked if the Prime Minister had responded to Helen Mirren’s win at the Oscars last night, the PMOS replied that the Prime Minister had said that it took a very special actress to take on a role of this kind, and to do so to universal acclaim. Helen Mirren was a very special kind of actress, and her Oscar was richly deserved.

Asked if the Prime Minister had seen the film, the PMOS said that he had not.

Asked by BBC24 how the Prime Minister knew the win was richly deserved if he had not seen it, the PMOS said because of everything he had been informed about it by those who had seen it. The Prime Minister thought that people only received Oscars if they did well!

Asked again by BBC24 why the Prime Minister was continuing to snub the film by refusing to see it, the PMOS replied that the Prime Minister had a very busy diary.

Asked what did the Prime Minister think of Michael Sheen’s performance, the PMOS replied that in this case, Michael Sheen was not in the picture.
