After the unmitigated embarrassment that happened at last year's Oscars, the Academy probably felt like it would be a good idea to, you know, bring back the people that were part of the fuck-up.
TMZ is reporting that, yes indeed, Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway will, yet again, present Best picture at this Sunday's 90th Academy Awards. Also, this time around "La La Land." and "Moonlight" will not be part of the nominees. Phew.
Dunaway and Beatty both just rehearsed at the Dolby Theatre yesterday morning. Again, from TMZ:
"We're told they were shuffled onstage together very quickly to run through their bit. They went through their lines twice. She began by saying, "Presenting is better the second time around," Beatty followed up with, "The winner is 'Gone with the Wind.'"We're told the writers are still putting finishing touches on their lines."
