Roughly half of Venezuela’s TV audience was not able to watch supporting actor winner Jared Leto express solidarity with all the “dreamers” in Ukraine and Venezuela as he accepted his Oscar.
That’s because the private channel Venevision, for the first time in several decades of carrying the Academy Awards, did not broadcast the show Sunday night. (See Pics: Oscars 2014 red carpet)
It was carried on cable television by the TNT network, but many Venezuelans can’t afford cable.
Venevision announced via Twitter earlier Sunday that it did not have the rights to broadcast this year’s Oscars. It offered no additional explanation. (Oscars 2014: Complete list of Winners)
Some Venezuelans mounted a campaign on Twitter urging participants in the Oscar ceremony to speak out in support of anti-government demonstrators.
