Oscar 2018: Beatty and Dunaway to resent (Again) Best Picture

Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty are expected back at this year’s Oscar show to again present the final award, Best Picture.

Sources confirmed the duo will give it another try on Sunday, this time with much more attention to the handling of the envelope.

The “Bonnie and Clyde” actors rehearsed the moment in advance of Sunday’s Academy Awards ceremony at the Dolby Theater Thursday afternoon.

Dunaway, 77, and Beatty, 80, are associated  with the infamous 2017 scandal, when Beatty took a look at the card, seemed to be unclear about what he saw, and handed the card to Dunaway, who saw the words “La La Land” and pronounced it best picture winner instead of “Moonlight.”

Beatty and Dunaway had been handed the best actress duplicate card that Emma Stone had won moments before for “La La Land.”

The presenters had mistakenly been given the wrong category envelope and when discovered, was immediately corrected. We are currently investigating how this could have happened, and deeply regret that this occurred.”

This year, the celebrity presenter as well as a stage manager will confirm that they have the correct envelope before announcing the award. PwC partners will not be allowed to use social media during the show. In addition, a third “balloting partner” will sit with producers in the control room with a third set of envelopes.

Cullinan and Martha Ruiz will not be returning to carry the ballots this year. Balloting partners will include PwC’s Rick Rosas, who has handled Oscar duties before, and Kimberly Bourdon.
