Associated Press Has Figured A Way To Avoid Envelope Gaffes At The Oscars
February 16, 2018
February 26, 2017, was a mixed night for the Academy Awards. What started out as a grand affair turned out to be a nightmare. Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway who co-starred in Bonnie and Clyde stepped on stage to present the award for Best Picture.
But Beatty looked confused on opening the envelope. It read "Emma Stone, La La Land". And his co-presenter, none the wiser, thought to sort out the confusion and announced La La Land as the winner.
