    Warren Beatty & Faye Dunaway announce wrong Best Picture Winner - Oscars 2017

    Good Lord




    Beatty and host Jimmy Kimmel explained the error, telling everyone they had read the wrong envelope, seeing Emma Stone won for La La Land, who was actually the winner for best actress.

    Watched it while it was happening. I don't know if this was accidental or intentional, I'll just say that the Miss. Universe ratings went through the roof this year after Steve Harvey's mishap with announcing the wrong winner last year. This incident at the Oscars seemed a little too obvious and on the nose to me - JMO.

    I don't watch Hollywood award shows (only Independent Spirit Award), as I would rather blow myself to bits instead. When I read the title I thought it was staged too, so I peeked inside.

    I don't watch any longer either. I stumbled on it on you tube.

    Wanted to hear all the stuff about Trump! There were some really funny tweets with a lot of folks saying stuff like I wish this happened on election day - which just cracked me up!!!

    Around 2:07 you can see people running frantically behind all them - and a bit later you see like the director of the show or whomever taking one envelope and then going over and taking the other out of the other guys hand



    At 2:30 look at what is going on behind the guy at the mike.

    I think it was real after looking at the video again

    I'll take your word for it, CARIIS. But remember, they are actors, doing what they do best. LOL

    That is funny! I might go with you with it being a passive aggressive staffer !!

    That too is confusing --the Best actress envelope had to have been already opened - so it would seem somewhere in this (!) someone had to make it look unopened when they gave it to them ha !

    I would also think the winners take the envelope off with them !!

    So aha we have a WS mystery --who made two cards and envelopes on it ah ha a mystery of the highest order !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



    Cue the music -- the plot thickens !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Bets being taken how many say this is the lead in the AM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Depending if Trump tweets his witching hour is approaching !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Warren Beatty brushed off Faye Dunaway's concerns as the pair made a surprise appearance at the Governors Ball - the official afterparty.
    Still clutching the wrong envelope in his hand, 79-year-old Beatty told Faye, 76, they had nothing to be ashamed of.

    'Are we in the sink?' she asked him, to which Beatty replied: 'No. It wasn't us.'

    he kept it as proof!!

    Warren Beatty announces wrong Best Picture Winner for La La Land (Moonlight Won)

It took a pretty considerable amount of time for Beaty and Dunaway to collect the envelope, wait to be announced, walk out on stage, deliver their joke, and wait for the nominees clip to play.

    Additionally, if the accountants are in control of the envelopes wouldn't they hand the envelope to the announcers rather than allowing the announcer to take whatever envelope they choose as the accountant seems to insinuate in his exclamation?!

    Emma Stone says she had her card in her hand. But apparently there are two sets of envelopes.

    Apparently there are “two sets” of envelopes for each winner, according to a partner at accounting firm PriceWaterhouseCoopers.

    I don't watch the Oscars either. Since it's west coast they start late and end very late, well after midnight, on the east coast. Besides, I don't go to the movies and usually have no clue of any of the movies up for an award. I wait until after the Oscars when it's on OnDemand and say, oh, let me watch that film, it won an award, maybe it's good.

    By the way, the title here reads "Warren Beatty announces" when in reality it was Faye Dunaway. Warren held the envelope, opened it, and handed it to Faye who read it.
