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

Oscars: Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway Reference

An exuberant Roberto Benigni shouted his acceptance speech while collecting the foreign language film award for Life is lovely at the top of his lungs and his euphoria is irresistible.

It was the biggest awards debacle of in all of Oscars history. 'Moonlight, ' you guys won best picture.

"It's Waterhouse under the bridge", host Jimmy Kimmel teased before introducing the Bonnie and Clyde co-stars.

Last year, Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty mistakenly announced La La Land as the Best Picture victor instead of Moonlight, apparently because Beatty was handed the wrong envelope, which contained the results for the Best Actress victor - La La Land's Emma Stone.

"I'm never going to get the opportunity to enjoy that - because even if it happens again, it won't be the same". "Just give us a minute". Eight films he has produced have earned 53 Academy nominations, and in 1999, he was awarded the Academy's highest honor, the Irving G. Thalberg Award. There was a little bit of black, a whole lot of white, bits of red, a ton of blush tones, a dollop of buttercup and a few outlier shades of gray, silver and caramel, wrote fashion critic Robin Givhan. "This is not a joke, Moonlight, you won best picture". "Golly, there's people up there too", she continued gazing upwards at the auditorium, before adding famously: "When I watched Kate two years ago it looked so f**king easy" before exclaiming "Oops!" We all have stories to tell and projects we need financed.

"Don't talk to us about it at the parties tonight, invite us into your office, we'll tell you all about them".

Rita Moreno in the dress she wore when she won an Oscar in 1962. "My pinkie toe fell off".

A simultaneously gracious and amusing Cate Blanchett singled out her fellow nominees for praise and lighthearted jabs while collecting the best actress for Blue Jasmine in 2014, before addressing "those in the industry who are still foolishly clinging to the idea that female films with women at the centre are niche experiences". The case was dropped after his accuser refused to testify in court. This nine-time Grammy champ will be taking center stage to perform "Mighty River", which she co-wrote with Raphael Saadiq and Taura Stinson.

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

In the months that followed, PwC met with the academy many times to come up with new protocols and safeguards to prevent such a blunder in the future.

Gary Oldman took home the Oscar for lead actor for his role in "Darkest Hour", and Frances McDormand took home the statue for best actress. The actor was unrecognizable playing the prime minister during World War II as he weighed his options for the Dunkirk evacuation.

It's been roughly one year since the biggest Oscars debacle of our lifetimes (besides Crash winning): The infamous envelope mixup at the 89th Academy Awards that had presenters Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway preemptively give the award to nominee La La Land instead of the actual victor, Moonlight.

She said: "Meryl (Streep), if you do it, everyone else will".

Partner for accountancy firm PricewaterhouseCoopers, Brian Cullinan, and colleague Martha Ruiz were the pair in charge of counting votes for the awards, both standing side of stage and giving sealed envelopes to presenters through the night right before they took to the stage.
