Oscars Warren and Faye Fought Over Who Announces Best Picture

2/27/2017 11:08 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Warren Beatty gave Faye Dunaway what she demanded during rehearsal ... the honor of reading the winner of Best Picture, and he watched as she failed in spectacular fashion.

Sources who were present at Saturday's rehearsal tell us, both Faye and Warren wanted to announce the winner and went back and forth, but eventually Warren backed off and Faye got her way.

In fact, we're told their rehearsal was contentious from start to finish ... they wouldn't go onstage together to block their walkout ... they did it separately.

Watch the clip closely ... you see Faye angling to get the envelope as Warren tries to make sense of it ... as if she fears he might jack the moment and read it himself. Warren didn't warn her ... he just passed the envelope.

And watch how quickly Faye reads the winner ... it's almost as if she worried Warren would beat her to the punch. It's pretty apparent ... Warren knew something was wrong and she just jumped.

We've reached out to Faye and Warren's reps for comment ... so far, no word back.

The Oscars 'Moonlight' Wins Best Picture, But 'La La' Gets Trophy In EPIC Screwup!!

2/26/2017 9:58 PM PST
Breaking News

Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway pulled a Steve Harvey -- announcing "La La Land" won Best Picture, when it was really supposed to go to "Moonlight" ... and the fallout was hysterical. 

In the greatest Oscars ending ever ... Warren and Faye called the 'La La' crew up onstage -- and they were several minutes into their acceptance speeches before someone figured out the massive screwup.

If you missed it you gotta see how it played out -- stage managers looked like Keystone Cops running around onstage. To their credit, the 'La La' folks graciously handed over their Oscars when the "Moonlight" cast and crew came up.

As for what went wrong? Watch ... Warren's explanation is an instant Hollywood classic, but basically he and Faye were handed the wrong card -- the one for Emma Stone's Best Actress win ... which had been handed out just before Best Picture.

Price Waterhouse just explained the obvious ... "The presenters had mistakenly been given the wrong category envelope and when discovered, was immediately corrected." Truth be told, not immediately.  Also, why were there 2 "Best Actress" cards?

And get this -- Leo DiCaprio might be unwittingly involved! Best we can tell ... he walked off the stage holding Emma's envelope after her acceptance speech. We don't know what happened backstage, but somehow that card -- or a duplicate of it -- ended up in Warren and Faye's hands.

You are not alone, Steve Harvey.
