Did you see the crazy snafu at the Oscars? Of all the categories to blunder, it was the Best Picture that fell prey to human error.

Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty were the presenters. Beatty’s lengthy hesitation and bewildered look, upon opening the envelope, had some fearing the onset of Alzheimer’s and others thinking his attempt at humor not at all funny. When Faye finally took the envelope and made the announcement — oops, the flick she yelled out was not the winner. When asked later, "What happened?”, Beatty replied, “It must have been the Russians!”
