Everyone knows what happened the last time Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway presented at the Oscars together.

Which is why we don't blame Guillermo del Toro for appearing to double check the envelope before fully celebrating winning the coveted best picture prize for the Shape of Water.

Once sure he had actually won, Del Toro dedicated the win to young filmmakers around the world.


After barring envelope handlers from using mobile phones, the academy welcomed back PWC for the 90th Oscars on Sunday, and Dunaway and Beatty were given an opportunity to be exonerated. "It's so nice seeing you again," Beatty said with a smile as he took to the stage. Dunaway added: "As they say, presenting is lovelier the second time around."
