Gal Gadot on Becoming Wonder Woman, the Biggest Action Hero of the Year

How Steve Harvey Reacted to the Shocking Oscars Fiasco: ‘Boy, Do I Know That Feeling’
No one could relate more to the Oscars’ Best Picture disaster than Steve Harvey.

If anyone knows how Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway are feeling this morning, it’s Steve Harvey.

After the actors mistakenly called La La Land as the winner of the 2017 Academy Award for Best Picture Sunday night, it was quickly realized that Beatty had somehow been handed the wrong envelope and Moonlight was the true victor.

The embarrassing mix-up immediately drew comparisons to Harvey’s flub at the 2015 Miss Universe pageant, when the Family Feud host mistakenly announced Miss Colombia as the winner, when Miss Philippines actually won the crown.

How you distinguish a member of the Beyhive from the rest of the crowd. pic.twitter.com/VcrPpfWnMQ - beyreigns (@beyreigns54) January 31, 2017 There's a lot of "hurry up and wait" when it comes to large-scale televised events, and during the Miss Universe pageant dress rehearsals on Monday night, one contestant in particular found the perfect way to bide her time. As Beyoncé's "Single Ladies" blared from the speakers, the group of women took their places on stage - but Miss Netherlands, Zoey Ivory, couldn't just stand there.

TV Ratings: Miss Universe Dominates, Despite Drop From Last Year

TV Ratings: Miss Universe Dominates, Despite Drop From Last Year
The Miss Universe telecast outdrew its broadcast competition by a wide margin Sunday night. From 7 to 10 p.m. on Fox, the Miss Universe pageant brought in a 1.4 rating in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and 5.21 million viewers, rising sharply throughout the night as the show built to the crowning of Miss France. That’s down another few tenths, or 18%, in the demo from the ratings for the last Miss Universe ceremony — in which host Steve Harvey announced the wrong winner — which were themselves down 15% from 2014. One possible mitigating factor: The previous crowning didn’t conflict with the SAG Awards, having aired in December 2015.

CBS’ “60 Minutes,” in the absence of NFL runoff, pulled in a 1.2 in the demo and 11.43 million viewers. “NCIS: Los Angeles” drew a 1.2 and 11.19 million viewers. “Madam Secretary” weighed in with a 0.9 and 8.6 million viewers. “Elementary” notched a 0.7 and 5.42 million viewers.

Steve Harvey Returns to Host Miss Universe, Jokes With Miss Colombia About Last Year's Flub
Steve Harvey was able to laugh at himself when he hit the stage once again to host the Miss Universe pageant on Sunday night.

At last year's pageant, the 60-year-old comedian made a major blunder when he accidentally announced that Miss Colombia, Ariadna Gutierrez, was Miss Universe when the crown was really supposed to go to Miss Philippines, Pia Wurtzbach. "Every time I read off a card, I pucker up just a little bit," he admitted during Sunday's show.

Well, this was a lot less awkward than we expected.  Steve Harvey came back to host the 2016 Miss Universe pageant, and after last pageant's on-air mistake, you can imagine how many could've wanted to look away with the 60-year-old host called Miss Colombia, Andrea Tovar as one of the top 13 finalists.  We have to give them some serious props for taking what could've been a really awkward situation and turning it into a funny moment.
