What Happened at the Oscars Last Year?

What Happened at the Oscars Last Year?”

Beatty and Dunaway have reportedly been selected to present the 2018 Oscar victor for best picture, despite the two presenters' botched announcement previous year. They went through their lines twice.

According to TMZ, Beatty, 80, and Dunaway, 77, "were shuffled onstage together", with Dunaway reportedly quipping, "Presenting is better the second time around".

For those who missed it, the two Hollywood legends were brought in to present the award at the 2017 Oscars. So when La La Land was announced as best picture, Dunaway was reading the card for Emma Stone's Best Actress win.

A new formal procedure will also be in place for when the envelopes are handed over.

Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway announced the wrong Best Picture victor, La La Land, at the 2017 Oscars after being handed the wrong envelope. The real victor was Moonlight, and after being given the correct envelope and card, Horowitz went back to the microphone and said, "There's a mistake".

An accountant with the PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) firm, which was in charge of calculating the award votes and keeping it a secret until showtime, was blamed for the gaffe. Both the celebrity presenter and the state manager will check they are given the correct envelope. We are now investigating how this could have happened, and deeply regret that this occurred. "I want to tell you what happened", he said. "I thought he was stalling".

This year's Best Picture nominees are Call Me by Your Name, Darkest Hour, Dunkirk, Get Out, Lady Bird, Phantom Thread, The Post, The Shape of Water and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri.

Host Jimmy Kimmel jokingly interjected, "Warren, what did you do?!" It said Emma Stone, 'La La Land.' That's why I took such a long look at Faye and at you.
