Warren Beatty, Faye Dunaway to again present Oscars Best Picture

At last year's ceremony, Beatty stood alongside Dunaway as he opened the envelope, but appeared to look instantly confused. When announcing the recipient of the night's top prize, the trophy was wrongly awarded to "La La Land" instead of the actual victor, "Moonlight". Even 2017 Oscars host, Jimmy Kimmel will be returning 'cos as his Oscar promo showed, he clearly has unfinished business.

One year on and just days away from the 90th Academy Awards, we revisit the biggest blunder in Oscars history.

Moonlight director Barry Jenkins then said that a do-over would not be the same and that he would not have the chance to enjoy the moment.

Director Barry Jenkins told The Hollywood Reporter recently that he was "distraught" at the Oscars after party when he should have been on Cloud Nine. We may never get an official explanation, but at least we got a do-over this year. "I'm afraid they read the wrong thing". "It was super-personal".

Dunaway and Beatty incorrectly announced the musical "La La Land" as the Best Picture victor in 2017 when it was actually the drama "Moonlight".

The producers of the hit musical film were part way through their speeches when the mix-up was revealed.

Finally, producer Jordan Horowitz had the wherewithal to step forward and say, "Guys, guys, I'm sorry. No".

As she did with every other presenter, Bourdon turned to Beatty and asked: 'This is the best picture envelope, could you please confirm that?'

Frances McDormand, Sam Rockwell and Guillermo del Toro are each heavily favoured to win, while Aussie golden girl Margot Robbie is nominated for a Best Actress award. The presenters had mistakenly been given the wrong category envelope and when discovered, was immediately corrected.

How are the Oscars preventing another "Moonlight" debacle this year? "So, there was nearly a stigma that I felt".

"I hope they take some inspiration from seeing this handsome group of artists".

Despite the infamous incident The Academy has made a decision to retain accounting firm PwC despite the now infamous Best Picture flub.

One of the changes made included making sure that the same partners from last year were not behind the scenes this year, reports The Hollywood Reporter.
