The president of the film academy has sent an email to its members telling them they have much to be proud of after this year's Oscars ceremony. And she reassures them changes will be made to avoid a repeat of the botched best-picture announcement.
The president of the film academy says the two accountants responsible for the best-picture flub at Sunday's Academy Awards will never work the Oscars again. She also laments that the error overshadowed a show that celebrated a rich diversity of talent and storytelling.
In an interview following his Oscar win on Sunday, Casey Affleck addressed earlier sexual harassment claims against him and said "everyone deserves to be treated with respect in the workplace and everywhere else."
Warren Beatty is declining to comment further about Sunday's Oscar debacle but says Academy of Motion Pictures President Cheryl Boone Isaacs should "publicly clarify what happened as soon as possible."
