Academy makes light of best picture flub in new Oscars trailer

Posted on

And the award for best sense of humor goes to the Academy, as perhaps the most shocking moment in the group’s history takes center stage in the just-released promo for the upcoming 90th Oscars ceremony.

After shuffling through a few clips from 2017’s standout titles (Wonder Woman, Girls Trip, Get Out, Lady Bird, Mudbound, and The Post make appearances, among others), the Oscars teaser promises “better thrills” and “better chills” in addition to “bigger moments and better surprises” as footage plays from February’s memorable flub, which saw Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway incorrectly announcing La La Land as the best picture champion after PricewaterhouseCoopers accountant Brian Cullinan handed them the wrong envelope. Moonlight was then awarded the prize.

“Warren, what did you do?” host Jimmy Kimmel says in the clip, which heralds his return as the impending telecast’s host for the second consecutive year.

The 90th Academy Awards will be broadcast live on March 4 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC. Watch the new preview for the ceremony above.
