Oscar Envelopes Featured Font Large Enough To See From Home

Why the Oscars won't be announcing the wrong winners in 2018 The (Right) Envelope, Please: PwC Plans for an Uneventful Oscars
Derrick Tucker | 07 March, 2018, 11:43

Hopefully no one messes up this time!

The Oscars have already shown they're embracing last year's series of unfortunate events, which had Beatty and Dunaway opening the extra Best Actress envelope instead of the Best Picture one - thanks to distracted, tweeting Oscar accountant Brian Cullinan - and "La La Land" producers giving speeches for more than two minutes before "Moonlight" was declared the correct victor. Hollywood found the mix-up so outrageous that the act was dubbed "envelopegate".

Continuing a recent trend, ratings for the 3 hour and 50 minute telecast dropped to a record low of 26.5 million viewers, down a big 20% from last year's 33 million. Of course, this time around, the award was presented without a hitch - though she says Beatty briefly struggling with the envelope did give her a bit of pause!

"I have to ask, what was your focus in the other 89 years?"

Chaos. Host Jimmy Kimmel explained it was all real.

And that film was The Shape of Water.

Beatty and Dunaway took note of their previous unintended gaffe, with Beatty saying: "Thank you. I wasn't trying to be amusing", Beatty clarified on stage at the time, after host Jimmy Kimmel had joked "Warren, what did you do?"

This year, the celebrity presenter as well as a stage manager will confirm that they have the correct envelope before announcing the award.

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.

After last year's disastrous "La La Land"/"Moonlight" mixup, Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway returned for a do-over.

PricewaterhouseCoopers created a new policy to make sure that kind of confusion doesn't happen again, including prohibiting the use of smartphones and social media backstage during the Oscars show.

Comediennes Haddish and Rudolph co-presented the awards for animated and live-action short films and they were hilarious.
