The Oscars got the winners right this year

Oscars Best Picture Mistake in 2017 - What Went Wrong, What Happened Next?

A year ago it was a much different story as the Bonnie And Clyde actors were at the center of an envelope mishap involving Academy Awards agency PriceWaterhouseCoopers which counts the votes. As you'll recall, Beatty and Dunaway incorrectly announced "La La Land" as the Best Picture at the end of the 2017 awards show. "Check out that font size", wrote one twitterer, while another tweeted, "Omg they made the letters on the envelope so big this year to avoid another mix up hahaha #Oscars".

In 2017 Dunaway read the wrong best picture victor after the pair was handed the best actress category envelope.

That's right folks, Hollywood legends Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty are making their Oscars comeback after things got a bit bloody awkward during the best picture presentation at last year's Academy Awards ceremony.

Even though it was not their fault, the screen legends were ridiculed past year for announcing the wrong victor. Everything was eventually sorted out, and the Moonlight team took the stage to accept their big win, but many looked for who to blame for the snafu: Dunaway?

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. "It's so nice seeing you again".

He told the Hollywood Reporter: 'It's bittersweet because when that switch happened, I didn't enjoy it. Faye echoes his excitement saying presenting is better the second time around. "Why didn't I see Emma Stone's name on top of the card?" "What is happening?'" she said.
