  • A look at Oscar flubs and controversies

TMZ is reporting that the pair has been given a second shot at handing out the award after the epic mix-up a year ago saw them accidentally announce the wrong name. "Moonlight has won best picture".

Two new stage side partners are overseeing the envelopes and a third balloting partner will now sit with Oscar producers in the show's control room.

Film academy president Cheryl Boone Isaacs sent an email to academy members Wednesday detailing the new protocols for announcing Oscar winners developed after the best-picture flub at last month's Academy Awards.

So big that he was trending nationally on Twitter in two versions, the correctly spelled "Shuster" and the misspelled "Schuster". T giving a pregame pep talk over the phone and scores of celebrities and followers tweeting support and congratulations.

"I thought I could have done something, surely". That's why I took such a long look at Faye and at you.

Finally, producer Jordan Horowitz had the wherewithal to step forward and say, "Guys, guys, I'm sorry. No". You know what I'm talking about: the La La Land/Moonlight mix-up. Now they're returning to make up for their mistake, and possibly make a jab or two at last year's historic gaffe.

"We appreciate the grace with which the nominees, the Academy, ABC, and Jimmy Kimmel handled the situation".

Although they were "shaken up", the bus driver and passenger were not injured, RFTA CEO Dan Blankenship said. The tragic vehicle crash occurred near Aspen when Fegan, driving his SUV collided with a bus on Highway 82.

PricewaterhouseCoopers, the accounting firm responsible for the victor envelopes, announced new regulations that hopefully will prevent any future errors.

One year later, Oscar host Jimmy Kimmel still can't get over it.

'The most important thing is to remember that it's about the movies, said returning head writer Jon Macks, who is working on his 21st Oscars telecast. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the duo was even spotted rehearsing at the Dolby Theatre Thursday night, presumably to make sure a similar mistake doesn't happen again this year. We want to keep it positive and stay on that message.

The question remains: Will this years Best Picture victor be as underwhelming as these "jokes" (if you can call them that)? I think Moonlight will be remembered.
