But that’s not how the latter part of it went down as best picture presenter Warren Beatty confessed he was reading incorrectly off the best actress victor card which listed Emma Stone as best actress, instead of the best picture card.
Jimmy Kimmel just nailed it with that tourists segment!
Most presenters entered stage right, where Cullinan was posted and where he handed Beatty and Dunaway the errant envelope. “There’s been a mistake”, he said.
Cullinan was confirmed by PwC as the person responsible for giving Warren Beatty – who presented the award with Faye Dunaway – the wrong envelope.
“Look, it just seems like the other side, whenever they’re losing badly, they always pull out the race card”, Trump said in an interview conducted Monday night for Tuesday morning’s episode of “Fox & Friends” on Fox News. Pictured: Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty on February 26, 2017 in Hollywood.
The Wall Street Journal reports that Brian is the accountant behind the error, and Cullinan was warned not to update social media during the Oscars in order to focus on his job, reports People.
After revealing that she was engaged to the man with her, Kimmel prodded Washington, “Will you be the best man at their wedding?” I opened the envelope and it said Emma Stone, ‘La La Land.’ That ” s why I took such a long look at Faye and at you.
And there was Jane Fonda, who won the best actress award for “Klute” in 1973, accepting her statuette by saying, “There’s a lot to be said tonight, but I won’t say it”. Finally, Dunaway announced, “La La Land“.
The La La Land team arrived on stage, and producers Jordan Horowitz and Marc Platt delivered their speeches.
“Once the error occurred, protocols for correcting it were not followed through quickly enough by Mr. Cullinan or his partner”, the accounting firm said in a statement.
Warren walked up to the microphone with the winner’s card in hand and displayed it to the cameras while stating that Barry Jenkins’ film “Moonlight” was the in fact the victor.
“He feels very, very awful and frightful”, Ryan said.
Cullinan reportedly “feels very, very awful and horrible” and “is very upset about this mistake”, according to PWC chairman Tim Ryan, per Variety. “And it is also my mistake, our mistake, and we all feel very bad”.
Academy representatives are yet to reply to Beatty’s comment. ‘Remember a year ago when it seemed the Oscars were racist?’ he asked. “I was still clueless about what had actually taken place”. Thankfully, we now know it wasn’t all her fault, but questions around what exactly happened are still being raised.
The Academy Award for Best Screenplay went to Affleck’s director, Kenneth Lonergan, for Manchester by the Sea.
