Oscars 2018: The Shape of Water Wins Best Picture at Academy Awards

Why the Oscars won't be announcing the wrong winners in 2018

And the poor presenters, Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway, received the brunt of the blame.

The Oscars have already shown they're embracing last year's series of unfortunate events, which had Beatty and Dunaway opening the extra Best Actress envelope instead of the Best Picture one - thanks to distracted, tweeting Oscar accountant Brian Cullinan - and "La La Land" producers giving speeches for more than two minutes before "Moonlight" was declared the correct victor.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences also took care to avoid another disaster, using cards with extra-large print on them.

An Oscars source told TMZ that Faye, 77, started their rehearsal segment by saying: "Presenting is better the second time around".

Real Madrid 3-1 Getafe: 5 Talking Points
Cristiano Ronaldo got the 300 up in style for Real Madrid , netting the second goal in Saturday's La Liga game at home to Getafe. He told a press conference: "Before a second-leg game like Tuesday it was very important to have three days in a good mood".

Even though it was not their fault, the screen legends were ridiculed past year for announcing the wrong victor.

The Academy Awards, hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, took place at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood on Sunday. The previous record low of 32 million was set in 2008, with Jon Stewart as host, just after an 11-week Hollywood writers' strike that crippled other awards shows.

But now the pair have been given another shot at their role, and will be announcing the same award this year. "What happened past year was Waterhouse under the bridge", a reference to the accounting firm of PricewaterhouseCoopers, which took responsibility for the envelope mix-up. The 80-year-old star was the immediate and incorrect scapegoat for 2017's ballot mess as Kimmel came onstage and proclaimed "Warren, what have you done?" Dunaway and Beatty had been handed the incorrect envelope. "Our friend Oscar is 90 years old tonight, which means he's probably at home right now watching Fox News". "Faye and Warren will present it to the cast again as the first award of the night".
