The Academy has implemented the cheeky slogan "What could possibly go wrong?" in Kimmel's advertising spots (featuring Beatty) and on the official Oscar poster.
Immediately, netizens and celebrities such as model-actress Tyra Banks were calling for the amusing duo to host next year's awards. Warren allegedly will say, "Presenting is better the second time around", and Beatty follows it up with, "The victor is "Gone with the Wind". "Our friend Oscar is 90 years old tonight, which means he's probably at home right now watching Fox News".
The best-picture nominees, with their number of nominations, are "The Shape of Water" (13), "Dunkirk" (8), "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri" (7), "Darkest Hour" (6), "Phantom Thread" (6), "Lady Bird" (5), "Get Out" (4), "Call Me by Your Name" (4) and "The Post" (2).
Beatty said: "It's so nice seeing you again". This time, the chairman of PricewaterhouseCoopers said, and I quote, 'Our singular focus will be on the show and delivering the correct envelopes, ' which does make sense.
Beatty looked down at it, no doubt with flashbacks from a year ago racing through his mind, quipped: 'Are you sure?'
The Academy is apparently going to give Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway a second chance at presenting the biggest prize of the night at the annual Academy Awards. In a backstage mix-up, Beatty was handed the wrong envelope just before he went on stage.
In January, the Academy unveiled a new set of guidelines to better prevent against a mix-up happening again.
This year's large font is in sharp contrast to last year's Oscars ceremony, where it was harder to read the gold text on red envelopes.
