Warren Beatty’s long-awaited Howard Hughes movie Rules Don’t Apply did not end up an Oscar contender (or a critical and financial success, for that matter). Still, the legendary multi-hyphenate will end up taking the stage during the ceremony. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Beatty will present the prize for Best Picture alongside his Bonnie And Clyde co-star Faye Dunaway in celebration of the film’s 50th anniversary. The Academy has not officially announced their participation yet, but THR reports that there have been whispers that it was plotting to nod to Bonnie And Clyde’s class of Best Picture nominees, which also included eventual winner In The Heat Of The Night and The Graduate.
The Academy has officially revealed some of the celebrities that will hand out prizes come February 26. The likes of Amy Adams, Riz Ahmed, Dwayne Johnson, and David Oyelowo are among them.
