How many times will the Oscars reference the Best Picture mishap?

Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty were involved in one of the biggest mistakes in Oscars history previous year when they announced the wrong film as the best picture victor due to the wrong enveloped being given to them. Kimmel gave the potential winners a word of caution Sunday night after having hosted the ceremony previous year and needed to deal with the unexpected fiasco.

Chances are very high Kimmel will mention it in his monologue, like how 2015 host Neil Patrick Harris mocked John Travolta's mangling of Idina Menzel's name into Adele Dazeem the year prior in his opener.

"As they say, presenting is lovelier the second time around", Dunaway added. Hopefully with the right envelope this time.

Beatty and Dunaway took note of their previous unintended gaffe, with Beatty saying: "Thank you".

Chuckling a little as he opened the envelope, Warren announced Shape Of Water as the winning flick. "It's so nice seeing you again".

BJP, allies stake claim to form Meghalaya government
The United Democratic Party ( UDP ), which is a part of the BJP-led North East Democratic Alliance (NEDA), has won six seats. He questioned the Congress for sending two of its senior leaders Ahmed Patel and Kamal Nath to the northeastern state.

Previous year it was a much different story as the Bonnie And Clyde actors were at the center of an envelope mishap involving Academy Awards agency PriceWaterhouseCoopers which counts the votes.

TMZ is reporting that the pair has been given a second shot at handing out the award after the epic mix-up past year saw them accidentally announce the wrong name. In a backstage mix-up, Beatty was handed the wrong envelope just before he went on stage. Although PricewaterhouseCoopers - the firm that oversees the tabulation of Academy votes and the creation and distribution of the results - has assured the Academy and the public that they are taking extra precautions to ensure that situation never ever happens again, ever.

"Obviously mistakes happen", Todd tells USA TODAY about the humorous look back to previous year.

One of the key changes was visible on Sunday as awards were being presented.
