Despite reading out entirely the wrong movie last year, Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway are to get a second chance at presenting the award for Best Picture at this year's Oscars.
The president of the film academy says the two accountants responsible for the best-picture flub at Sunday’s Academy Awards will never return to the Oscar show. Cheryl Boone Isaacs tells The Associated Press that the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ relationship with PwC, the accounting firm responsible for the integrity of the awards, remains under review. Boone Isaacs broke her silence Wednesday following the biggest blunder in the 89-year history of the Academy Awards.
Beatty released a statement Tuesday to The Associated Press in which he declined to comment further on the debacle that led to him and co-presenter Faye Dunaway mistakenly reading La La Land as best picture winner rather than Moonlight. “I feel it would be more appropriate for the president of the Academy, Cheryl Boone Isaacs, to publicly clarify what happened as soon as possible,” said Beatty. Since Sunday’s broadcast, the academy has largely left the explaining to PwC, the accounting firm that has taken the blame for the “La La Land” mistakenly being read as the best picture winner by Beatty and Faye Dunaway.
It’s been less than 24 hours since the most notorious fubar in Oscar history — the mistaken announcement that La La Land had won best picture, when in fact the award was meant for Moonlight — and accounting firm PricewaterhouseCooper has now issued an unusual second apology, while the Academy is announcing that it will conduct an investigation of the way the tell-tale envelopes are handled at the Oscar ceremony while offering an apology of its own. Going beyond the first statement of apology that was issued Sunday night, three hours after the Oscar broadcast ended, PwC on Monday sent out what it called a “revised statement” in which it squarely shoulders the blame for the incident, cites PwC partner Brian Cullinan for the mistake and offers another apology to all involved in the embarrassing drama that played out on national television.
When all around were losing their heads last night, it fell to Jordan Horowitz to take the reigns and make sure the Oscar for Best Picture went to the right people. The 36-year-old producer of ‘La La Land’ took to the microphone and clarified that his movie had not won the gong, but ‘Moonlight’ had, contrary to the announcement by Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway.
Accountancy firm PricewaterhouseCoopers have taken responsibility for the mistake that led to the wrong film being announced as the Best Picture winner at the 2017 Oscars. Presenters Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway erroneously announced ‘La La Land’ as the winner before recanting revealing ‘Moonlight’ was the actual winner. In an official statement released by PwC said a representative of their firm handed the presenters the wrong card before they went on stage.
While the Oscars of 2017 will be remembered for, quite literally, one thing, the ‘Moonlight’/’La La Land’ debacle can also perhaps be summed up in a single image. And it’s of Ryan Gosling’s face. Holding his hand to his mouth to try and keep from bursting out laughing, the ‘La La Land’ star looked very much how everyone was feeling. It seemed to say ‘someone’s going to get fired’, after ‘La La Land’ was mistakenly named Best Picture by Warren Beatty, when the winner was actually ‘Moonlight’. Of course, it’s been hailed on Twitter as being perhaps the quintessential image of the evening. ...
DiCaprio to blame? The biggest moment of the 2017 Oscars came when Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway incorrectly announced ‘La La Land’ as the Best Picture winner when the actual winner was ‘Moonlight’. It’s since emerged that Beatty was actually holding the envelope for Best Actress which announced ‘La La Land’s Emma Stone as the winner, so you can understand the confusion from the presenters. Some people on Twitter are suggesting that it’s all Leonardo DiCaprio’s fault.
The 89th Academy Awards was plunged in chaos right at the end of the ceremony on Sunday night when Warren Beatty announced the Best Picture winner as ‘La La Land’, when it was actually ‘Moonlight’. What made it even more excruciating was that the ‘La La Land team’ were already half-way through their speeches when the mistake was realised, which meant that they all then had to leave the stage and be replaced by those that made ‘Moonlight’. Warren Beatty, who read out the winner of the Best Picture gong alongside Faye Dunaway to mark the fiftieth anniversary of ‘Bonnie And Clyde’, came back on stage to explain that the envelope he had opened actually had Emma Stone’s name on it.
Warren Beatty’s first movie in 15 years, ‘Rules Don’t Apply’, in which he plays eccentric businessman Howard Hughes, has bombed at the box office. The $25 million (£20 million), star-laden movie also stars Lily Collins, Alden Ehrenreich, Matthew Broderick, Alec Baldwin, Steve Coogan, Ed Harris, Martin Sheen and Beatty’s wife Annette Bening, in a story about the relationship between a young actress and her driver, a relationship forbidden by their employer Howard Hughes.
Actor and renowned lothario Warren Beatty has scorned the legend that he has slept with 12,775 women. The 79-year-old star of movies like ‘Bonnie and Clyde’ and ‘Dick Tracy’ denied the claims, while speaking in an interview with AARP magazine, the publication produced by the American Association for Retired People. ...
With the #OscarsSoWhite controversy at the top of the agenda, we look back at the 1968 Academy Awards ceremony, broadcast six days after the death of Martin Luther King and featuring nominations for race-focused films like ‘In The Heat of the Night’ and ‘Guess Who’s Coming To Dinner’. It wasn’t until the announcement of the Best Actor award towards the end of 10 April that the 1968 Oscars properly acknowledged the tension that had been emanating round the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium all night. Rod Steiger (above), who won the prize for playing a bigoted Southern cop thrown together with a black detective to solve a murder in drama ‘In the Heat of the Night’, finished his speech with a stirring statement using pointed vocabulary normally associated with the civil rights movement.
There have been few better actors than Hackman – pretty much any film he’s been in is improved because of his presence. In 2004, after starring in flop ‘Welcome To Mooseport’, he said he thought his acting life was done and rather than pull a Sinatra and embark on a comeback, he’s stuck to his guns.
