(Newser) – It appears the Academy is a firm believer in the old saw "any press is good press" because it's reportedly bringing back the duo whose massive flub led to wall-to-wall media coverage (and internet jokes) after last year's ceremony. That's right, TMZ reports Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway will present the Oscar for Best Picture at the 90th annual Academy Awards this weekend. For anyone who was in a coma this time last year, the pair mistakenly announced La La Land as the winner, leaving a producer to awkwardly announce the real winner, Moonlight, once everyone was on stage. Dunaway and Beatty will obviously reference the goof, with a source telling TMZ that in rehearsals she said, "Presenting is better the second time around." Beatty then added, "The winner is Gone With the Wind." (Read more Academy Awards stories.)
