Oprah Blooper Alert! Oscar Special Broadcast in English and Spanish (VIDEO)

Colin Firth on 'The Oprah Winfrey Show' - In Spanish and English!Those viewing today's special Oscar version of 'The Oprah Winfrey Show' (weekdays, syndicated) might have been a bit confused during the first 10 minutes or so. Apparently due to technical difficulties, the broadcast started with the regular show, in English, plus a Spanish translation, making it hard to concentrate on either language. (For an example of this principle, click here).

In the clip below, Winfrey talks to Best Actor winner Colin Firth about his Oscar experience, while a Spanish translation plays over the top of it (reminiscent of the Talking Stain commercial from a couple of year ago). As far as we can tell, he responds, "You try to ignore the stuff. People telling you you're a front-runner is not that helpful." We think he said it was detrimental to his peace of mind, but we're not entirely sure.

At least the translators are spirited.

Oprah doesn't know how to appeal to the Hispanic Bilingual Cmmunity yet, and the biligual production (even thou tried to sepparate English with Spanish simultaneous translation) results in a chaos.
