Best Picture Oscar again

A year later, Weiss is preparing to direct another Oscars telecast (airing Sunday), but he still can't shake those infamous few minutes of live television. Stone had just won Best Actress in the category before Best Picture.

In a recent interview with Good Morning America, Oscars host Jimmy Kimmel jokingly assured viewers that this will not happen again.

The company might have been sacked outright, but PricewaterhouseCoopers and the Academy have an 84-year-long history, making the disentanglement of the two entities nearly impossible.

Faye, 76, and Warren, 80, returned to the spotlight at last year's Academy Awards for a Bonnie and Clyde reunion, to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the film.

And The Academy has chose to retain accounting firm PwC despite the now infamous Best Picture flub.

Gal Gadot, Mark Hamill, Oscar Isaac, Armie Hammer, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Gina Rodriguez and Zendaya will also present awards. He then showed the real card from the actual envelope to the crowd. Which momentarily had the cast and crew of La La Land (as well as viewers at home) convinced they'd won when in reality the victor was fellow indie darling Moonlight. At this year's ceremony, the company's chairman, Tim Ryan, has said he will be personally involved in making sure the evening goes smoothly. "I guess I have to go up there, '" Kimmel said. "I thought well, maybe this is a misprint".

"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. No matter how awkward or embarrassing it might be, there would be no cutting to a commercial, no breaking away for 'technical difficulties.

As you probably remember, Warren and Faye came under fire when they read what was reportedly the wrong envelope.
