Hollywood veterans Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway will reportedly present the Academy Award for Best Picture during the Oscars ceremony, a year after their infamous mix-up. Kimmel gave the potential winners a word of caution Sunday night after having hosted the ceremony past year and needed to deal with the unexpected fiasco. Kimmel will return as the host for the 90th Academy Awards. "She began by saying, 'Presenting is better the second time around, ' Beatty followed up with, 'The victor is Gone with the Wind'". Hopefully no one will be confused as to which envelope they've been handed.
That's right folks, Hollywood legends Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty are making their Oscars comeback after things got a bit bloody awkward during the best picture presentation at last year's Academy Awards ceremony. "It was such a, you know, a trauma the first one". Our biggest fear is that Warren Beatty will decide to say this year's victor is Lala Land as a joke. Host Jimmy Kimmel is getting a new chance at presenting after he hosted a great 2017 show, forgotten in the wake of the ending mayhem.

The Academy has added six extra steps to avoid the flub from happening again. The presenters had mistakenly been given the wrong category envelope and when discovered, was immediately corrected. Last year's envelope was an elegant red, but the smaller gold lettering on it was not so easily readable.
