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

Envelopes 2018 Oscars

Dunaway and Beatty were given the wrong envelope before they walked onto the stage.

After the "La La Land" cast showed up on stage to collect their Oscar, the presenters reannounced the victor as "Moonlight", stunning the cast members and the audience, alike.

The Academy Awards, hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, took place at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood on Sunday.

And all three accountants were scheduled to attend rehearsals and practice any mix-ups if one slips through, the firm said.

He said: "I want to dedicate this to every young filmmaker, the youth who is showing us how things are done in every country of the world".

The changes are meant to avoid an embarrassing mistake akin to the one the academy suffered previous year, when a PwC representative mistakenly handed Warren Beatty the backup envelope for best actress, which had already been awarded to Emma Stone for "La La Land".

Hollywood called it "Envelopegate" and promised that it wouldn't happen again.

La La Land producer Jordan Horowitz came forward after some commotion to tell everyone, "There's a mistake". They had been given the Best Actress envelope by mistake and when Dunaway saw the words "La La Land" under the name Emma Stone she blurted them out.

Past 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. It's very humbling to be up here and I hope it's inspiring to little black boys and brown girls who feel marginalised.
