Dench's Oscar Disgrace

DAME JUDI DENCH and MORGAN FREEMAN were nearly left out in the cold at this year's Academy Awards ceremony in March (06) - and Dench was later ordered to stand at the back of the auditorium. Dench, 71, arrived late with her daughter FINTY, as did Freeman and his wife. But despite their screen star status, they were shocked to be treated less than graciously. She says, "We arrived at the theatre with Morgan Freeman and his wife but the doors were already closed. "Eventually CHARLIZE THERON came and made a fuss so we followed her in. "We had seats in row C but Morgan was given those so we were told to stand at the back."

Seems to be Dame Judi didn't get treated that well at the Oscars this year anyway. But having to stand in the back was really pretty insulting. The seats in C were supposed to be hers - why were they given to Morgan Freeman??? She keeps getting treated badly and she keeps coming back. She is a lady. But I am ashamed of us Yankees.....
