Oscars 2018: Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty Will Present Best Picture Again

How to avoid another Oscar mistake

Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway are getting a chance to redeem themselves at the Oscars this weekend after a mishap at 2017's ceremony led to the pair announcing the wrong victor for the night's biggest category. It took La La Land producer Jordan Horowitz to rip the card out of Beatty's hands and correctly announce the Best Picture win for Moonlight. Beatty and Dunaway had inadvertently been given the second envelope for the previous award, Best Actress, which Emma Stone won for her performance in La La Land. Which momentarily had the cast and crew of La La Land (as well as viewers at home) convinced they'd won when in reality the victor was fellow indie darling Moonlight. In addition to forbidding the use of cell phones and social media backstage at the ceremony, presenters and a stage manager will confirm the correct envelope is going on stage before an award is presented.

"Presenting is better the second time around", Dunaway supposedly recites while opening the announcement, to which Beatty follows up with, "The victor is Gone with the Wind".

TMZ reports that the writers are still putting finishing touches on their lines. She said La La Land and the team from that film came up on stage to accept the award. It just makes everyone a little uneasy that all the elements for Best Picture Flub: Round Two are in place.

Last year's gaffe was mainly the mistake of PricewaterhouseCoopers, the accounting firm that the Oscars puts in charge of counting ballots and managing the envelopes.

The 90th Oscars will be broadcast live on Sunday, March 4, at 8 p.m. ET on ABC. "I thought he was stalling". As the person on the production team responsible for booking and taking care of the show's presenters, she felt very bad for Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty, who had been handed the wrong envelope by a PricewaterhouseCooper accountant.

"I strolled up onstage, looked around to see what was happening and made a couple of jokes to try to settle things down", Kimmel told People.
