The two were center stage for last year's infamous debacle when Dunaway announced "La La Land" had won the Best Picture of 2017 instead of "Moonlight".

Nonetheless, the Academy appears to have pardoned the 80-year-old filmmaker and Chinatown actress' for their previous faux pas.

Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway were spotted at Oscars rehearsals at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles this week, according to TMZ's sources. "Presenting is better the second time around", Dunaway reportedly says, before Beatty jokes, "The victor is Gone with the Wind".

"The biggest safeguard there is that this company PricewaterhouseCoopers will literally have to go out of business if they do it a second time", he quipped.

Bach added that he didn't know how long it would take to clear the 166 remaining Russians of doping in Pyeongchang. The Russian question has hung over Pyeongchang.

Other presenters on the night are expected to include Stone presenting Best Actor, last year's Best Supporting Actor victor Mahershala Ali, who'll present Best Supporting Actress and last year's victor of that category Viola Davis, who will present Best Supporting Actor. Beatty was confused by what he saw on the card, "so he let her read the victor". We are now investigating how this could have happened, and deeply regret that this occurred.

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

'There are things that are both reminiscent of some of the shows from the past, but there's also a lot of stuff that I hope will feel very contemporary and modern and forward-thinking. Our biggest fear is that Warren Beatty will decide to say this year's victor is Lala Land as a joke. "I thought he was stalling". Warren's like that. He kind of holds the power and makes people - a dramatic pause. "And then, I shouldn't foul up the show just because someone made a little error", he said. "Why didn't I see Emma Stone's name on the top of the card?" The pair were invited to present for best picture in honor of the 50th anniversary of their Oscar-winning movie Bonnie and Clyde.
