Nicole Kidman's Dress Straps Broke During the Oscars 2017

Nicole Kidman had a slight wardrobe malfunction during the 2017 Academy Awards, but it thankfully didn’t have an effect on her evening!

The straps on the Oscar-nominated actress’ dress broke during the show and she was seen backstage later in the night with the straps tied behind her neck and hanging down her back.

It appears that the straps may have snapped during the segment of the show when tourists entered the theater and greeted the celebs in the front row.

Nevertheless, Nicole was able to gracefully fix the malfunction and make it look like nothing happened. See photos of the broken dress in the gallery!

FYI: Nicole is wearing an Armani Prive dress and bag, Stuart Weitzman shoes, an Omega watch, and Harry Winston jewelry.

Oscars 2017 Best Picture: Accounting Firm Says Brian Cullinan Handed Wrong Envelope to Warren Beatty

The accounting firm of PricewaterhouseCoopers has placed the blame on partner Brian Cullinan for the wrong envelope being on stage during the Oscars Best Picture mix up.

“PwC takes full responsibility for the series of mistakes and breaches of established protocols during last night’s Oscars. PwC Partner Brian Cullinan mistakenly handed the back-up envelope for Actress in a Leading Role instead of the envelope for Best Picture to presenters Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway,” a new statement read (via Deadline). “Once the error occurred, protocols for correcting it were not followed through quickly enough by Mr. Cullinan or his partner.”

“We wish to extend our deepest gratitude to each of them for the graciousness they displayed during such a difficult moment. For the past 83 years, the Academy has entrusted PwC with the integrity of the awards process during the ceremony, and last night we failed the Academy,” the statement concluded.

Patricia Arquette Speaks Out After Sister Alexis Left Out of Oscars In Memoriam

Patricia Arquette was not pleased that her sister Alexis was left out of the Oscars In Memoriam segment.

The Oscar-winning actress explained that she thought the snub was a slight to the transgender community.

Alexis was a great actor, and had 70 credits, and was really brave to live her truth as a trans woman, and they didn’t include her in the memorial,” Patricia told ET.

She added,”I think that was a real slight to the trans community, especially at this time, when trans kids can’t even go to the bathroom in the United States of America at school. It says a lot about the lack of inclusion…Trans kids can really never look at anyone and see their heroes, and I think that was a big mistake.”

Patricia concluded, “The reality is, trans people are ignored all the time in our culture and our community. They have their civil rights taken away. They’re a very disrespected community.”
