"That's big-time money," said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst at comScore. "At times, the musical genre has been marginalized or not taken seriously. But this is serious business." 'Beauty' blockbuster expected It's enough to make a musical fan break into sudden, joyful song, perhaps on the way to the multiplex, where this weekend Emma Watson's Beauty and the Beast is expected to have a huge, $120 million-style opening.

After Ruiz furnished presenter Leonardo DiCaprio with Stone's best actress envelope, Cullinan was supposed to ditch his duplicate but mistakenly gave it to Beatty in the place of the best picture envelope. "The presenters had mistakenly been given the wrong category envelope and, when discovered, was immediately corrected," PwC said.
