How the Academy changed the Oscars envelopes after last year's mix-up

How the Academy changed the Oscars envelopes after last year's mix-up

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.

North Korean delegation arrives for Olympics closing show
Later on Sunday the White House said in a statement that "denuclearization must be the result of any dialogue with North Korea". President Trump called the measures targeting the country's shipping industry "the heaviest sanctions ever imposed".

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".

Tiger Woods to play in Valspar Championship in Palm Harbor next week
The Arnold Palmer Invitational is set for March 12-18 at the Bay Hill Club and Lodge in Orlando . It will be his first start at the event since his last win in 2013.

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.
