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

Ways to Spice Up the Oscars

"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?"

But the biggest change became quickly apparent on Sunday as Viola Davis presented the award for best supporting actor.

Director Barry Jenkins told The Hollywood Reporter recently that he was "distraught" at the Oscars after party when he should have been on Cloud Nine.

So this year the Academy took some not-so-minor and obviously very important steps to make sure such a fiasco didn't happen again. "I said, 'Is he doing this purposely?"

At the 2017 Academy Awards, Beatty and Dunaway originally announced that La La Land had won the best picture Oscar.

La La Land producer Jordan Horowitz said: "There's a mistake". I'm afraid they read the wrong thing.




Showing her sense of humor, the actress actually wore the same glamorous blue Esteban Cortazar dress to present Best Picture this year as she wore on the red carpet of last year's Oscars.

"What happened a year ago was Waterhouse under the bridge", a reference to the accounting firm of PricewaterhouseCoopers, which took responsibility for the envelope mix-up.

The firm is responsible for the balloting process of the Oscars prizes and is one of the largest professional services firms in the world and a leading auditor. So, there was nearly a stigma that I felt.

"On PricewaterhouseCoopers' statement on that same screw up: "'Our singular focus will be on the show and delivering the correct envelopes.'" "What was your focus the other 89 years?" Here's hoping they all have the right cards.

The drama, starring Trevante Rhodes, Ashton Sanders and Alex Hibbert, won three Oscars from eight nominations past year.
