Warren Beatty And Faye Dunaway Set To Present At The Oscars Again

An accountant from PricewaterhouseCoopers gave Beatty the wrong envelope as the actor, along with Faye Dunaway, his co-star in 1967′s "Bonnie and Clyde", went out to present the Best Picture award at the end of the show. "Moonlight has won best picture". In addition to two partners stationed on either side of the Oscars stage, there will be a third balloting partner who will have all victor envelopes in their possession and join Oscar producers inside the show's control room "as a safety control".

The chaos came when Warren handed the card over to Faye, but it mistakenly featured information about Emma Stone winning Best Actress for her role in "La La Land", and the "Chinatown" star read the movie's title out as the Best Picture victor. I thought he was upset about the fact that La La Land had won.

La La Land producer Jordan Horowitz came forward after some commotion to tell everyone, "There's a mistake".

Dunaway, meanwhile, said of the incident in April 2017 on NBC Nightly News: "I was very guilty, I could have done something surely".

I don't blame Beatty and Dunaway for wanting a do-over. "This year, it seems like there are nine of them happening all at once, so that's something that has to be handled, has to be balanced, has to make sure that people that want time have enough time to talk about". Although PricewaterhouseCoopers - the firm that oversees the tabulation of Academy votes and the creation and distribution of the results - has assured the Academy and the public that they are taking extra precautions to ensure that situation never ever happens again, ever.

Both stars spoke out in the weeks after the show. ('I'm not really at liberty to talk about that one, Hurd says.) Beyond that, while there's no doubt the #MeToo movement will be represented in the show, how exactly that unfolds remains to be seen.

Other confirmed presenters during this year's telecast include Sandra Bullock, Lupita Nyong'o, Emily Blunt, Armie Hammer, Tiffany Haddish, Jodie Foster and Gal Gadot, while the ceremony will again be hosted by Jimmy Kimmel. Plus, Kimmel also made a somewhat compelling case that last year's Best Picture flub was more of a blessing than a curse: "I guess the worst thing the Oscars can be is boring I think, right?"
