Mexican director Guillermo del Toro accepts the Oscar for Best Film for "The Shape of Water" from Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty during the 90th Annual Academy Awards show on March 4, 2018 in Hollywood, California. Although PricewaterhouseCoopers - the firm that oversees the tabulation of Academy votes and the creation and distribution of the results - has assured the Academy and the public that they are taking extra precautions to ensure that situation never ever happens again, ever. La La Land was mistakenly announced as the victor of the big prize of the night, as opposed to the true victor, Moonlight.
Hollywood does like a sequel - even when it comes the Oscars. Kimmel gave the potential winners a word of caution Sunday night after having hosted the ceremony previous year and needed to deal with the unexpected fiasco.
As he showed her the envelope, she took it from him before revealing that La La Land was the victor.
As for the host who had to deal with it all, Jimmy Kimmel still has nightmares about the whole thing. "That's just what we do when we try to keep shows clean".
But now the pair have been given another shot at their role, and will be announcing the same award this year. "What happened a year ago was so much Waterhouse under the bridge".
Kimmel hoped for a better result at this year's ceremony. Actually, it wasn't all their fault since they got the wrong card.
The company also now requires a stage manager and the presenters to verify the victor envelope is the right one before the presenters head onstage. "I wasn't trying to be amusing", Beatty clarified on stage at the time, after host Jimmy Kimmel had joked "Warren, what did you do?" This is history happening right here.
