  • Warren Beatty, Faye Dunaway We're Back Presenting Best Picture We Won't Screw Up Twice!!!

After last year's disastrous "La La Land"/"Moonlight" mixup, Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway returned for a do-over.

Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty, who starred as Bonnie and Clyde in the 1967 film, announced the wrong best picture victor at last year's Oscars.

The Academy has added six extra steps to avoid the flub from happening again. "Presenting is better the second time around", Dunaway reportedly says, before Beatty jokes, "The victor is Gone with the Wind".

And we're in store for the ultimate redemption story on Sunday's Oscars with the news, as reported by The Hollywood Reporter and TMZ, that Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway will present the final Academy Award.

Watch the 2018 Academy Awards hosted by Jimmy Kimmel on Sunday, March 4 at 8 p.m. ET on CTV.

Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway returned to the stage this year to announce the big victor, and this time they got it right. All my years of training at that moment went 180 degrees. 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.


Chuckling a little as he opened the envelope, Warren announced Shape Of Water as the winning flick.

He also joked that the incident was "waterhouse under the bridge", in reference to the PricewaterhouseCooper accountants who were responsible for the envelope mix-up.

Kimmel hoped for a better result at this year's ceremony.

Walking towards Bourdon with a soda, his presenting partner Dunaway turned to him and asked, 'What's in there? "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?"

Last year's design led, in part, to one of the biggest Oscar mix-ups of all time.
