Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty Are Announcing Best Picture Winner Again

How to avoid another Oscar mistake

TMZ reports that the two were spotted rehearsing for Sunday's awards ceremony at the Dolby Theatre.

IT'S hard to believe it's been a year since the Best Picture envelope-geddon. Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway took the stage to announce the victor of the night's top award, and what happened next was unprecedented.

When La La Land producer Jordan Horowitz held up the right card showing that Moonlight was indeed the victor, Weiss had a camera ready to zoom in on it, creating an image that became an instant viral meme. "I wasn't trying to be amusing", Beatty clarified on stage at the time, after host Jimmy Kimmel had joked "Warren, what did you do?"

And The Academy has made a decision to retain accounting firm PwC despite the now infamous Best Picture flub. "This is not a joke".

The Academy has been less forgiving, however, of Brian Cullinan and Martha Ruiz, the PriceWaterhouseCoopers partners who have counted the votes and managed the envelopes containing the winners' names for years.

Letting them do so would be the IOC's "worst decision", he said . Two Russian athletes failed drug tests during the games.

Dunaway then ran off the stage, leaving a bewildered Beatty behind.

Do you think they should return to the stage to have another go following the error?

"The presenters had mistakenly been given the wrong category envelope and when discovered, was immediately corrected", a PricewaterhouseCoopers statement read at the time. "I thought he was stalling". Many have assumed that returning host Jimmy Kimmel will directly address the gaffe this year.

PWC, which has counted the Oscars ballots for eight decades, has taken extra steps for 2018 to make sure nothing goes wrong, ABC News US has reported.

Legendary: Faye, 76, and Warren, 80, returned to the spotlight at last year's Academy Awards for a Bonnie and Clyde reunion, to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the film.
