Warren Beatty & Faye Dunaway Reportedly Presenting Best Picture Again
Mar 06 2018
An anonymous source toldUs Weekly that Beatty and Dunaway - who are scheduled to present - will start Sunday's Oscars by presenting last year's Best Picture award to Moonlight, so the cast and crew can properly experience the moment that many felt was taken from them. "La La Land." Of course, we all know that Beatty handed Dunaway the wrong envelope because the real victor was "Moonlight". The outlet added the two were rehearsing their lines for the big moment at the theatre on Thursday night. "Presenting is better the second time around", Dunaway said, before Beatty announced: "The victor is 'Gone with the Wind'". During rehearsal, Dunaway was heard saying, "Presenting is better the second time around".
Our biggest fear is that Warren Beatty will decide to say this year's victor is Lala Land as a joke.
Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway reportedly will return to this Sunday's Oscars to present the Best Picture award.
Warren Beatty has been nominated for fourteen Academy Awards - four for Best Actor, four for Best Picture, two for Best Director, three for Original Screenplay, and one for Adapted Screenplay - winning Best Director for Reds (1981).
After Beatty opened the envelope onstage, he hesitated.
The Bonnie and Clyde costars then announced The Shape of Water as the victor as director Guillermo del Toro and cast members Sally Hawkins, Michael Shannon, Octavia Spencer and Richard Jenkins took the stage to accept their statuette.
No one really knows which film is going to win best picture. And Allison Janney had been the best-supporting-actress favourite throughout awards season for her scabrous portrayal of Tonya Harding's mother in "I, Tonya", even if her role was smaller and her performance less nuanced than those of her competitors in an extraordinarily strong category.
The 2018 Academy Awards will be hosted by Jimmy Kimmel for the second year in a row and presented on March 4. "Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway will do the honors again!" another chimed in, along with a clip from the gruesome final scene from Bonnie & Clyde. In addition to two partners stationed on either side of the Oscars stage, there will be a third balloting partner who will have all victor envelopes in their possession and join Oscar producers inside the show's control room "as a safety control".
