Steve Harvey knows all too well what it’s like to completely screw up a perfect night.
Harvey committed the ultimate blunder back in 2015 when he accidentally announced the wrong winner for Miss Universe. So because Harvey has lived through the pain of practically ruining somebody’s moment, he is forced to be a shoulder for Warren Beatty.
During Sunday night’s Academy Awards, Beatty announced the wrong winner for the biggest category of the night. While unveiling the Oscar for Best Picture, Warren named La La Land as the big winner. But after a handful of acceptance speeches, tears and a lot of smiles, it was revealed Moonlight actually won.
And just like Harvey, Beatty blamed the card. Hmmmm.
On Monday morning, after giving Beatty some time to process how his next several days are about to play out, Steve reached out to the actor via Twitter, writing: “Call me Warren Beatty. I can help you get through this!”
Steve also addressed Warren’s mixup on his radio show, saying: “Yeah, I know all about this. I know more than anyone else in the world about this. I am the creator of these moments. The epicurean of this.”
The 60-year-old continued, “Because Warren made a mistake, does he have to die? Should he lose his life? Y’all wanna kill him? Well he needs security because of this.”
He added, “Me and Warren handled it great. It’s me and Warren’s thing. We handled it great. At least the producers of the Oscars walked out with him… and they corrected the mistake on the night.”
As for Sunday’s actual mixup, it turns out a duplicate copy for Best Actress was handed to Beatty and co-presenter, Faye Dunaway. Emma Stone’s name was on the envelope, but despite confusion being brushed across Beatty’s face, they just decided to go with, “La La Land.”
Needless to say, it was the best moment of the night.
Meghan Markle Is Headed Back To The Small Screen…Kinda
Meghan Markle may have left USA’s Suits after seven seasons, but the actress’ likeness will be making it’s way back to a TV very soon. Lifetime has announced that it’s planning a film based on Markle and her soon to be husband, Prince Harry’s whirlwind romance.
The cable network, known for it’s biopics, made the announcement on Sunday at the Television Critics Association winter press tour.
“And before the wedding of the year takes place between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, Lifetime will debut a movie revealing how the stars aligned for this royal romance,” said Lifetime’s head of programming Liz Gateley.
Harry & Meghan: The Royal Love Story (working title) will trace Prince Harry and Markle’s relationship from the day they met to the overwhelming media attention surrounding their eventual engagement, which was announced in November. It will also touch on their courtship after they were set up by mutual friends and depict Markle’s life as a divorced American actress.
Menhaj Huda, who helmed an episode of E!’s fictional Royal Family series The Royals is on hand to direct. Casting is currently underway.
No official date has been announced, but given Lifetime’s track record, fans should expect the movie to release a few days before the couples May 19 wedding. Back in 2011, Lifetime aired William & Kate: The Movie just days before the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge married on April 29.
