Warren Beatty, Faye Dunaway Get Second Chance To Present 'Best Picture'

News, report that Beatty and Dunaway are getting a do-over after "Envelopegate", that spectacular fiasco where they announced the wrong victor of the Best Picture Oscar at last year's ceremony.

It's being reported that Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty will once again be presenting the award for Best Picture at this year's Academy Awards.

A year ago saw the Hollywood legends present the highly coveted award to the wrong film - announcing the victor as La La Land instead of the real victor - Moonlight - causing no end of drama at the end of the night.

Beatty responded by announcing, "The victor is "Gone with the Wind".

What followed was unprecedented live TV chaos as La La Land was proclaimed the victor before the mistake was corrected on stage and the Oscar given to the rightful victor, Moonlight. The envelope was a duplicate copy of the best actress envelope, which had revealed Emma Stone for "La La Land" as the victor moments before.

Instead, it's now been announced, the Best Actress award will be presented by Jennifer Lawrence and Jodie Foster, with Jane Fonda and Meryl Streep presenting the Best Actor award.

"The presenters had mistakenly been given the wrong category envelope and when discovered, was immediately corrected", a PricewaterhouseCoopers statement read at the time. But according to TMZ, the pair were rehearsing on stage at Dolby Theater in Hollywood on Thursday, with Faye saying: "Presenting is better the second time around". And we don't know what's going to happen this Sunday night. New procedures have been put in place to further guard against such a mix-up, and the PricewaterhouseCoopers officials who handled last year's envelopes have been replaced. I wasn't trying to be amusing. The cast and crew stormed the stage, and the producers gave their acceptance speeches. "I thought he was stalling". "I still can't explain how it happened", Kimmel said. He then showed the real card from the actual envelope to the crowd.
