Warren Beatty Reacts

“I wasn’t trying to be funny,” were the words stammered by Warren Beatty, who had been playfully drawing out the Best Picture announcement while presenting alongside Faye Dunaway. He explained that the two of them had been given an envelope with the winner for Best Actress on it. “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,” Beatty told the audience amidst the confusion on stage.

Emma Stone Reacts

Speaking to reporters backstage after all that chaos, Emma Stone said, “ I was also holding my ‘Best Actress in a Leading Role’ card that entire time. So whatever story, I don’t mean to start stuff, but whatever story that was, I had that card.” PricewaterhouseCoopers, the accounting firm that handles Oscars voting, has since issued an apology and announced that it is “currently investigating how this could have happened”.
