LOS ANGELES - Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway may be returning to present Hollywood’s top honour, Best Picture, at Sunday’s Oscars ceremony.

In 2017, Beatty and Dunaway were given the wrong envelope and announced La La Land as the winner when it was _Moonlight _that had actually won.

TMZ is reporting that Beatty and Dunaway will be getting another chance to present the Best Picture Award, following 2017’s infamous blunder.

After reportedly refusing to rehearse onstage together previously, it’s believed the presenters have been rehearsing their lines and that there will be some reference made to last year’s fiasco.

The mistake was ultimately the fault of the accountant responsible for tallying the votes. Pricewaterhousecoopers says it’s made extra care to prevent a similar mishap taking place this year.
