Oscars: Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway Reference "Envelopegate" While Presenting Best Picture

  • Why the Oscars won't be announcing the wrong winners in 2018

Last year, he was amusing, and he handled the best-picture "wrong envelope" chaos with some aplomb; this past year, he's proven more political with his talk show (from health-care to the president), so let's see where his monologue goes.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences did everything in its power this year to prevent a repeat of the Best Picture disaster that marred the ending of 2017's Oscars telecast, instating a lengthy list of new rules centered around the envelopes containing the winners' names.

In January, the Academy unveiled a new set of guidelines to better prevent against a mix-up happening again. "Presenting is better the second time around", Dunaway reportedly says, before Beatty jokes, "The victor is Gone with the Wind".

ABC's late-night host is the network's choice to emcee its biggest TV-viewer night of the year for the second straight year.

Hollywood does like a sequel - even when it comes the Oscars.

"I do want to mention: This year, when you hear your name called, don't get up right away", he joked. Host Jimmy Kimmel jokingly commented on Beatty's move at the time, "In other words, Clyde threw Bonnie under the bus". Our biggest fear is that Warren Beatty will decide to say this year's victor is Lala Land as a joke.

Immediately, netizens and celebrities such as model-actress Tyra Banks were calling for the amusing duo to host next year's awards.

Kimmel hoped for a better result at this year's ceremony. "It's so nice seeing you again".

Walking towards Bourdon with a soda, his presenting partner Dunaway turned to him and asked, 'What's in there?

Now it's time for some celebration and laughter one year later, with Beatty and Dunaway triumphantly striding out on the Oscar stage with that right envelope.
