  • How to avoid another Oscar mistake

News, report that Beatty and Dunaway are getting a do-over after "Envelopegate", that spectacular fiasco where they announced the wrong victor of the Best Picture Oscar at last year's ceremony.

Wait, what?! Hollywood icons Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway are going to be presenting for Best Picture again at the Oscars despite the debacle past year! "La La Land." Of course, we all know that Beatty handed Dunaway the wrong envelope because the real victor was "Moonlight". Beatty then announced "The victor is". Half way through the "La La Land" team's victory speeches, producer Jordan Horowitz revealed that "Moonlight" was in fact the actual victor.

Backstage Moonlight director Barry Jenkins made a point of thanking the La La Land team for being "gracious", while Emma Stone praised Moonlight, calling it one of her favourite films of the year.

This year, the celebrity presenter as well as a stage manager will confirm that they have the correct envelope before announcing the award. And we were, I won't say 'deer in the headlight, ' but you are completely stunned. "She began by saying, "Presenting is better the second time around".

It has been reported by TMZ that the Academy wants to cleanse itself and bring back the duo so they can make get it right this time.

It was a cluster when "La La Land" producers on stage realized they didn't win.

It's a potentially genius move, sure to give a helping hand to the evening's ratings (which have been dropping steadily over the years) and to hold on to the spectacle of last year's awards show.

Ultimately it was decided that the accounting firm of PwC - short for PricewaterhouseCoopers - will be kept on board for the 90th ceremony next year with a few new precautions to prevent the same blunder from happening again.

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

"We are more aware that unexpected moments can happen on a live show", Todd told People.
