Take two: Dunaway and Beatty return to scene of Oscars fiasco

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

Cape Town - Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway will be getting a do over at the Oscars on Sunday.

Last year's Oscars will definitely go down in history as one of the momentous ceremonies to date, with the main award - Best Picture - accidentally presented to La La Land instead of real winners Moonlight after the envelope was mixed up.

After the incorrect announcement that La La Land had won Best Picture, the on-stage revelry of the film's cast and crew ground to a halt once it was revealed that Moonlight had actually won the award. "La La Land", is what Dunaway read, and so it came to be the wrong picture was announced as the year's best.

Walmart raises to 21 minimum age to buy firearms, ammo
Walmart followed suit a short while later, announcing that they, too, were raising the age to purchase a gun to 21. Dick's stock price was little changed as of midafternoon Wednesday afternoon, up 1.7 per cent.

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. In addition to forbidding the use of cell phones and social media backstage at the ceremony, presenters and a stage manager will confirm the correct envelope is going on stage before an award is presented. First, the accountants who worked a year ago will not be back.

TMZ reported that the two arrived at Hollywood's Dolby Theatre for a rehearsal - and we're sure they practiced a few more times than they did past year. "We are now investigating how this could have happened, and deeply regret that this occurred".

I don't blame Beatty and Dunaway for wanting a do-over.

"I think that's the worst idea I've heard in a very long time", Sean O'Connell, managing director at Cinemablend, told Cheddar on Friday. Indeed, as the producers of La La Land took the stage to accept what they thought was their best picture award, the production team was preparing to bring the carefully choreographed telecast in for a smooth landing.

Last year, the two reportedly disliked each other so much they did not rehearse together, TMZ said.

Jimmy Kimmel, who was commended for how he handled the situation as host last year, is back to host this year's award show as well.

Westbrook is seen on the play attempting to recover a rebound, but gets caught up with Young and Pachulia and falls to the court. Pachulia and Westbrook have also tangled before, the former knocking the Thunder star to the floor in a game last season.

In a move that makes it entirely obvious that Beatty and Dunaway shouldn't be blamed for the mix-up, the Academy invited them back once more to present the top honor at Sunday night's show.
