Deja vu? Beatty, Dunaway announce correct victor this time

We hope you've recovered from that very bad Oscar's Best Picture drama of previous year because the Academy has recreated the ideal set-up for it to happen again.

The legendary actress is opening up about last year's infamous mistake. The contents, he said, read "Emma Stone - La La Land", which explained his confused pause. You will be once you've surveyed our Academy Award viewing guide.

As for the host who had to deal with it all, Jimmy Kimmel still has nightmares about the whole thing.

Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway gained a lot of attention during last year's Oscars for the wrong reason, after they read the wrong movie as the victor of Best Picture.

And that film was The Shape of Water. Aside from Orson Welles for Citizen Kane, Beatty is the only person to have been nominated for acting in, directing, writing, and producing the same film, and he did so twice: first for Heaven Can Wait (with Buck Henry as co-director), and again with Reds.

After the victor was announced, Peele got up and hugged his star, Daniel Kaluuya , who was nominated for Best Actor last night. National Basketball Association and Los Angeles Lakers' legend, Kobe Bryant won an Oscar for best animated short film .

An Oscars source told TMZ that Faye, 77, started their rehearsal segment by saying: "Presenting is better the second time around".

Before the "Bonnie and Clyde" co-stars came on stage, Kimmel introduced them by quipping: "This is the home stretch". In a backstage mix-up, Beatty was handed the wrong envelope just before he went on stage.

"Obviously mistakes happen", Todd tells USA TODAY about the humorous look back to past year. He told Business Insider that previous year he thought Beatty and Dunaway were just doing a comedic bit at first - until he was notified a minute and a half after the "La La Land" announcement that there was a mistake. To make sure the envelope mix-up won't happen again, the Academy has implemented new procedures that include making sure the announcers get the correct category envelope before stepping onto the stage.

One of the key changes was visible on Sunday as awards were being presented.

You can compare how large the text is in the image above with last year's envelopes, and the difference is huge - literally.
