If you did watch The Oscar last Sunday until the end, you probably know what happened when they presented Best Picture of the year. If you did not watch The Oscar, you probably still know what happened from social media and newspaper.
If you really don’t know what the heck I am talking about, here is an explanation from the host, Jimmy Kimmel:
Jimmy Kimmel Reveals What Really Happened at Craziest Oscars Ever
If you still don’t wanna spend 7 minutes watching this video, here is a short explanation:
They gave the presenters, Faye Dunaway and Henry Beatty the wrong envelope, when Henry Beatty opened it, it said, Emma Stone, La La Land. He was very confused, since Emma Stone just received her award five minutes ago. He then gave the envelope to Faye Dunaway and she just read “La La Land” while the award supposed to go to Moonlight. Turns out the person who supposes to secure the envelope was busy tweeting. He gave the presenters the backup envelope, which was for the best leading actress, to them.
It was such a dramatic ending. But do you know who are Taye Dunaway and Henry Beatty? What did the Academy invite them for presenting the best picture?
Faye Dunaway and Henry Beatty were famous for the 1967 American biographical crime film: Bonnie and Clyde. This is how they look like in 1967:
It was based on a true story about the American outlaw couple Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow.
This two American criminals traveled with their gang, robbed and killed people during the Great Depression. This is how the real Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow look like:
This film received 2 Academy Awards and It is also one the first 100 films selection for United States National Film Registry.
As a film major student, i highly recommend everybody to watch this film.
The reason why the Academy Award invited Faye Dunaway and Henry Beatty was because it was the 50th years anniversary for the movie.
Sadly, it was ending up like this
I personally hope the Academy invited Faye and Henry to come back next year and present the best picture again.
Btw, if you are too lazy to watch the film, or you just don’t care about the spoiler,
here is the final scene from Bonnie and Clyde, which happened to the real life Bonnie and Clyde as well.
