Warren Beatty Wants the Academy President to Clarify Mistake

Warren Beatty is speaking out in a new statement asking the president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to clarify what went wrong during the Best Picture mix-up at the 2017 Oscars.

The legendary actor was asked by the Associated Press to comment on the situation and he declined to speak about it.

Why Did Warren Beatty Have the Wrong Envelope at Oscars 2017?

It appears that Warren Beatty was handed the wrong envelope before he walked on stage with Faye Dunaway to announce the Best Picture winner at the 2017 Academy Awards held at the Dolby Theatre on Sunday (February 26) in Hollywood.

This lead to what has to be the most confusing moment in Oscar history: The wrong movie being called as the winner.

Many people are wondering why there is more than one envelope for each category.

Here is the reason:

There is a company called PwC in charge of protecting the envelopes and ensuring that the right envelopes get delivered to the right people.

“From a security perspective, we double up everything,” Brian Cullinan of PricewaterhouseCoopersexplained. “That’s why there’s two of us. We have two briefcases, that are identical, and we have two entire sets of winning envelopes. Martha [L. Ruiz] carries one of those briefcases, I carry the other.”

He continued, “We go to the show separately with police escorts. I used to think it was for our security, it’s really for the briefcase [laughs]. We take different routes to get there just because of the kinds of things that can happen in L.A. traffic. We want to make sure that no matter what happens, one of us gets there. We’ve never really had a problem with that.”

That explains the existence of two envelopes. How the wrong envelope ended up in Warren‘s hand is still a mystery.

Faye Dunaway on Best Picture Fail: 'I'm Not Going to Speak About It'

It looks like Faye Dunaway won’t be taking any questions about the huge La La Land/Moonlight Best Picture mix-up that happened at the 2017 Oscars.

What happened was: Faye and Warren Beatty presented the award for Best Picture to La La Land, but really, the winner was supposed to be Moonlight. It turns out that Warren read the card for Best Actress (which went to Emma Stone for La La Land). So, fans are wondering why Warren and Faye didn’t question the writing on the card.

Faye reportedly told THR columnist Scott Feinberg, “No. I’m not going to speak about it,” when asked about what happened.

Warren Beatty’s Envelope at Oscars 2017 Said Best Actress, Not Best Picture

Well, we know it was not Warren Beatty‘s fault for the wrong winner being announced at the 2017 Academy Awards because he was given the wrong envelope!

The envelope that the legendary actor was holding on stage while he and Faye Dunaway announced the winner for Best Picture said, “Actress in a Leading Role.”

When Warren opened the envelope, he looked confused as it said “Emma Stone, La La Land” as the winner. He looked in the envelope to see if there was another card and when he showed the card to Faye, she announced La La Land as the winner.

You can clearly see in the photo below that the envelope did not say Best Picture!
