Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway return to present Best Picture at Oscars

The Bonnie and Clyde duo were reportedly seen at the Dolby Theatre rehearsing the best picture announcement, and went through their lines twice TMZ said.

Dunaway, 77, and Beatty, 80, gave viewers one of the most memorable Oscar nights ever in 2017 when Beatty took a look at the card, seemed to be unclear about what he saw, and handed the card to Dunaway, who saw the words La La Land and pronounced it best picture victor instead of Moonlight. It was only after a "La La Land" producer interrupted the celebration onstage that people realized the wrong movie had been announced and that Moonlight was supposed to be the Best Picture victor. Black-tie bedlam played out in front of the world's viewing population.

But then came last year's Academy Awards. In January, the Academy unveiled a new set of guidelines to better prevent against a mix-up happening again.

"The victor is 'Gone with the Wind, '" Beatty responded.

As important, the famously-uptight Academy has embraced last year's fantastic gaffe. The card that was read came from the envelope for the Lead Actress victor category, which went to Emma Stone in "La La Land".

The show producers Jennifer Todd and Michael De Luca are back as well for a second Oscar try after dealing with a mistake that was out of their hands.

The 2018 Academy Awards will be hosted by Jimmy Kimmel for the second year in a row and presented on March 4. "We're not curing cancer. We are now investigating how this could have happened, and deeply regret that this occurred".

Iraq sentences 16 Turkish women to death for joining Isis
The Iraqi Criminal Court yesterday sentenced 15 Turkish women to death for belonging to Daesh. He added, "This also applies to foreign women of ISIS militants".

'I was about to tweet 'That's a wrap, ' says Thomas, who was the first woman ever hired by the academy to announce the Oscars - and will return this year for her ninth time. We were hoping for that unexpected moment.

So while there may not be truth to this source's predictions about Sunday, we'd love to see Moonlight get a chance to take Best Picture again, and to run the clock out thanking people and talking about how important this film was.

Beatty's return is especially right.

Beatty has made merry with the mishap over the ensuing year.

He has been nothing but class in the aftermath of the exoneration that followed.

TMZ reports that, in rehearsals, Beatty and Dunaway reprised their roles, this time with intentional comedy.
