Deja vu? Beatty, Dunaway announce correct winner this time

The big victor! The Shape of Water won best picture at the 90th Academy Awards at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles on Sunday, March 4.

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.

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". "I opened the envelope and it said Emma Stone, La La Land. It was super-personal".

Last year's big reveal descended into chaos when Dunaway announced that "La La Land" won best picture, only for that film's producer to tell a shocked audience that the real victor was "Moonlight".

Who could believe it? "You hope until the end that a player like Hazard can invent something during the game". I was looking forward to watching this game today. "They're better than that, they're much better than that".

The producers of the hit musical film were part way through their speeches when the mix-up was revealed.

La La Land producer Jordan Horowitz came forward after some commotion to tell everyone, "There's a mistake". Mr. Beatty and his co-presenter, Faye Dunaway, were presenting best picture.

"This is no joke". I...talked to them very nicely, the accountants. "Moonlight has won Best Picture".

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.

The firm is responsible for the balloting process of the Oscars prizes and is one of the largest professional services firms in the world and a leading auditor.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences confirmed several changes in January, including presenters ensuring they have the correct envelope before they go on stage, with that fact confirmed by stage managers, too. However, last year's supporting winners Viola Davis ("Fences") and Mahershala Ali ("Moonlight") will present those awards. So, there was nearly a stigma that I felt.

"I hope they take some inspiration from seeing this attractive group of artists". "This is Moonlight, the best picture".

The Oscars kept the drama in the movies this year.
