Oscar 2017: Warren Beatty Wants AMPAS President Clarify Envelope Snafu

Warren Beatty is asking that Cheryl Boone Isaacs, the president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, “clarify what happened as soon as possible” with the miscue that led to the wrong film being recognized as best picture at Sunday’s Oscars.

Apparently through with addressing the matter himself, Beatty issued a brief statement on the controversy, in which he and co-presenter Faye Dunaway presented the top award of the evening to “La La Land” instead of “Moonlight.”
