Bonnie and Clyde are getting another shot.
Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway, who are two of the people responsible for last year's Oscars fiasco where La La Land was announced as the Best Picture winner over actual winner Moonlight, will announce Best Picture at this Sunday's Oscars ceremony, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Us Weekly, however, reports that they'll be re-presenting last year's award to Moonlight to give that film's producers the recognition they deserve without being overshadowed by the craziness of the moment. TV Guide has reached out to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to clarify.
Last year, Beatty and Dunaway were mistakenly handed the Best Actress category envelope by a PricewaterhouseCoopers accountant. When Beatty opened it to find "Emma Stone, La La Land," he was confused, and then Dunaway went for it and announced "La La Land." Moments later, when La La Land producers were accepting the award, the mistake was revealed, resulting in one of the most surreal live television moments of all time.
Dunaway later told Vanity Fairshe felt "very guilty" about what happened.
She's getting her chance at redemption this Sunday. Will the joke be that the envelope is rolled out in a safe and then Dunaway announces The Emoji Movie won Best Picture?
The 90th Academy Awards airs live Sunday, March 4 at 8/7c on ABC.
