Oscars Use Their Monumental Best Picture Fuck-Up As A SELLING POINT In First Promo For 2018!

no title

Forget Ellen DeGeneres and her selfie, the Oscars have a new biggest moment now — their worst!

In the first promo for next year’s show, airing live at 8 p.m. EST on Sunday March 4, 2018, ABC promised they “do it better,” including “Better Surprises” — at which point they cut to the clip of Warren Beatty giving the Best Picture award to the WRONG MOVIE!

We imagine returning host Jimmy Kimmel will have to say something about it, but using it as a selling point? Like, “Hey tune in live, our incompetence could go viral again”?

Oh, and just out of curiosity, why are movies like Justice League, Daddy’s Home 2, and American Made so prominent in this Academy Awards promo..? We mean… was that also a mistake?

Ch-ch-check out the odd choice for an Oscar promo (below)!
