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

"We sincerely apologize to Moonlight, La La Land, Warren Beatty, Faye Dunaway and Oscar viewers for the error that was made during the award announcement for best picture". Hollywood found the mix-up so outrageous that the act was dubbed "envelopegate".

One person remarked: "That man they cut off is p***ed. watch him write to the Academy like".

All-in-all, being part of an Oscar gaffe obviously isn't the end of the world for the stars. Is Beatty booked to return? Ideally, Kimmel already knows that and will avoid the subject entirely. "It's outside of my area of responsibility". Every year, someone promises a shorter show that moves fast, and most of the time, those promises aren't kept, but there's always a noble effort made. However, last year's supporting winners Viola Davis ("Fences") and Mahershala Ali ("Moonlight") will present those awards.

"The Shape of Water is about a woman who has sex with a sea monster".

The happy drama will finally close the circle of last year's still-unbelievable Oscar disaster in which Beatty received the wrong envelope to present the final best picture award with Dunaway.

However, this year, no one had to blow up the envelopes to see what they said.

PwC will also be back for this year's Oscars, but with some changes to hopefully ensure something like last year doesn't happen again.

The duo will again present the Oscar for Best Picture on Sunday, even after the embarrassing fiasco of a year ago.

"I said, 'Is he doing this purposely?" "But it feels weird. I hope it actually is having some positive impact".
