    I have vague memories of seeing a video of Mickey Rooney announcing a wrong winner at the Grammys once.

    I remember Australian’s Next Top Model the host announced the wrong winner, but it was because of what she was told via hidden microphone. No one seemed to make a big deal about it though, and NO ONE is mentioning it or comparing it to what happened with Harvey. Here is the link to the epsiode below:

    A lot of people think that happened when Marisa Tomei won, where Jack Palence couldnt read the envelope so he just said a random name, but the Oscars never said anything to avoid embarrising themselves.

    Not as dramatic and not with the actual award, but in terms of embarrassment because it was announced live:

    The only one I can remember is the Emmys announcing Friends as a nominee (during the nominations telecast) for Best Comedy Series only to say minutes later that 3rd Rock from the Sun was the real nominee and that somebody in graphics or whatever had made a mistake. My guess is that this was 1997. I’m old…
     
    These weren’t announced live but I remember nominations that were taken away because of elegibility issues after they were announced: Lauryn Hill at the Grammys, Henry Winkler for Guest Actor and Parks and Rec for Main Title Theme.

    I dont believe that this humanish ‘gaff’ is going to hurt Steve Harvey one little iota.

     

    Would enjoy watching him host the Oscars btw.

    Just sayin’….

    Yes, there was! In 1986, a clerical error resulted in the Daytime Emmy for outstanding writing in a drama series being given to The Young and the Restless instead of Guiding Light and the accounting firm later had to contact the academy to fix it. It’s in Tom’s book about the Emmys.

    More recently, in 2013, Aisha Tyler was given the wrong envelope when presenting the Daytime Emmy for outstanding informative talk show, but had enough sense not to read that winner.

    But poor Anthony Quinn didn’t have that much restraint when presenting at the Tonys in 1991, when he read the winner of the Best Play award when presenting for Best Director of a Musical. Thankfully, the winner of Best Play was Neil Simon, who had a nice response when he was actually presented with the award later that evening (“I was in the men’s room when Anthony Quinn was on, did anything interesting happen?”).

    I don’t understand how this can happen in an award’s show. The names of the nominees are always in the outside of the envelope. I don’t know what’s inside but I pressume it’s only the name of the winner.

    I remember that during Polish Film Awards ceremony in 2006 when presenter was supposed to announce winner of Best Supporting Actress, in the envelope there was a winner of… Best Actress. Everybody did laugh about it and took it in good spirit. Of course, BSA winner’s name was inside Best Actress envelope and both actresses were from the same film so there was basically no harm.

    I don’t believe Academy would let Marisa Tomei keep her Oscar if she wasn’t the rightful winner.

    ^ They wouldn’t have. It was a malicious rumour started by Rex Reed – in fact the Academy said they have people backstage who would walk on and announce the mistake if a presenter reads out the wrong name accidentally (or on purpose!)

    It happened at the Césars once, Vanessa Paradis said the wrong name, sometime in the 90’s.

    I remember this rumor that when Jack Nicholson won Best Actor for As Good As It Gets, the real winner was Howard Stern for Private Parts, but Frances McDormand just thought it was a joke and announced who she wanted to walk on stage.

    Wrong theme music played causing some to tell the wrong Susan that she had won.  Glad Lucci had finally won after 19 tries before this big mistake happend live!

    Given that Stern wasn’t even nominated for PRIVATE PARTS (nor was the movie in any category), that would’ve been a neat trick to win an award when you’re not on the ballot.

    The Tomei conspiracy theory alleged that since she was the last of the 5 nominees listed alphabetically, that was the name that Palance (in a state of confusion) misread.  Interestingly, she has had more subsequent Oscar nominations after that win then her entire competition combined.

    The Academy has verified that Tomei actually won. They have a procedure in place for this where the accountant has a panic button that signals the telecast director if a wrong name has been announced and they go to commercial. I’m surprised Miss Universe didn’t have that too.
