How to avoid another Oscar mistake

Why the Oscars won't be announcing the wrong winners in 2018

In 2017 Dunaway read the wrong best picture victor after the pair was handed the best actress category envelope.

The two Hollywood legends correctly announced The Shape Of Water as the victor of top honors at the 90th Annual Academy Awards held at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, California on Sunday evening. But it was unclear why they would have been given the wrong envelope - until it came to light that the chaos stemmed from a rep for the Oscars' accounting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers.

"Sorry guys, we're out of Oscars", he said.

Emma Chambers, 'Vicar of Dibley' actress, dies at 53
Broadcaster Emma Freud , who is married to Curtis, was among one of the first to pay tribute to the couple's "beautiful friend". Former Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson, who grew up in Doncaster near Chambers, wrote: "I'm sad about Emma Chambers ".

He said to the Hollywood Reporter: "It's bittersweet because when that switch happened, I didn't enjoy it".

This year's best picture announcement went off without a hitch - especially compared to the 2017 Oscars, when Beatty, 80, and Dunaway, 77, erroneously presented the trophy to La La Land instead of the correct victor, Moonlight.

"Nobody's hiding the fact that it happened, though we are taking measures so that it doesn't happen again".

Security clearance of Trump's son-in-law downgraded
Kushner received some scrutiny a year ago for failing to disclose a host of communications between himself and foreign entities. In light of the new allegations, Kushner now appears to be embroiled in one controversy after another.

As they announced that The Shape Of Water had won Best Picture, director Guillermo del Toro took to the stage, among other members of the cast and crew, to give his acceptance speech. I'm afraid they read the wrong thing.

Previous year it was a much different story as the Bonnie And Clyde actors were at the center of an envelope mishap involving Academy Awards agency PriceWaterhouseCoopers which counts the votes.

How are the Oscars preventing another "Moonlight" debacle this year? It's very humbling to be up here and I hope it's inspiring to little black boys and brown girls who feel marginalised.

Jordan Peele opens up about historic win at 2018 Oscars
Is Peele ready to cash in even more with a " Get Out 2"? This year's Academy Awards was a bit different from those in the past. Get Out creator Jordan Peele won the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay Sunday night, and everyone was elated.

Picking up the evening's biggest prize, Best Picture, the director dedicated the honour to up-and-coming movie makers.
