At the end of the 89th annual Academy Awards ceremony Sunday, Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty mistakenly announced that "La La Land" had won best picture after they reportedly were given the wrong category envelope – a duplicate of actress Emma Stone's card for best actress. When "La La Land" producer Jordan Horowitz revealed that "Moonlight" was the real winner, host Jimmy Kimmel stepped in to lighten the mood.

Kimmel was referring to Harvey's infamous blunder at the 2015 Miss Universe pageant. Harvey incorrectly named Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez the winner, then later announced that he had meant to say Miss Philippines Pia Wurtzbach.

"I alone walked the walk of shame down the runway, no flowers in my hand, no crown on my head – just a microphone and a look of 'oh, hell no,'" Harvey joked. "Warren Beatty had the same 'oh, hell no' look on his face."

He added, "I can get Warren through this. Call me, Warren Beatty."
