Why is Science Always Dissed?

I’m watching the Oscars while proofing the eBook versions of Warnings  and I noticed Marisa Tomei being introduced to tell us about the “science” Oscars presented “at a luncheon earlier this month.”

The scientists’ moment of glory consisted of about a 5-10 second pan which, I guess, is better than nothing. Then, some guy in a tux standing next to Anne Hathaway leans into the microphone and says, “congratulations, nerds.”

Would someone explain to my why scientists are always dissed?
