Steve Harvey can finally laugh about his Miss Universe mishap — now that it has happened to someone else.
During Sunday night’s Academy Awards, actors Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway took the stage to present the award for Best Picture, but wounded up announcing the wrong winner and creating one of the biggest Oscar blunders of all time. Dunaway awarded La La Land the Oscar, but the trophy should have gone to Moonlight instead.
Harvey, who famously announced the wrong winner of the Miss Universe pageant back in 2015, could totally relate to the public gaffe. The comedian and host jokingly took to Twitter to make light of the incident, tweeting:
Although it was Faye Dunaway and not Warren Beatty who announced the wrong winner, producers say it was neither of their fault, as they were handed the wrong card.
