Faye Dunaway, Warren Beatty to present Oscars best picture again, report says

Oscars stars caught in epic name mix-up 'to return to this year's bash'

Oscars stars caught in epic name mix-up 'to return to this year's bash'

Faye has since admitted she felt "very guilty" following the Best Picture blunder at last year's Oscars, and was "completely stunned" after incorrectly announcing "La La Land" had won the award, rather than "Moonlight". Beatty and Dunaway had inadvertently been given the second envelope for the previous award, Best Actress, which Emma Stone won for her performance in La La Land.

This year, the celebrity presenter as well as a stage manager will confirm that they have the correct envelope before announcing the award.

TMZ confirmed that Beatty and Dunaway would return to do the honors of announcing this year's Academy Award for Best Picture at the Oscars.

After the "La La Land" cast showed up on stage to collect their Oscar, the presenters reannounced the victor as "Moonlight", stunning the cast members and the audience, alike. Furthermore, Tim Ryan, the company's USA chairman, said he would be personally involved with the Oscars this year.

For those who may have forgotten, the 2017 Academy Awards ended in chaos. According to a source who spoke with TMZ, Beatty and Faye exchanged a few lines before presenting a joke about the debacle a year ago.

But no one corrected the mistake right away, and the crew from "La La Land" came on stage to accept the award.

We knew there'd be jokes galore at the two Oscar winners' expense, but looks like they'll be making those digs themselves.
