Moonlight has won Best Picture at the Oscars – but before that, La La Land was announced as the winner by mistake. Watch the flub below.
The cast and crew of La La Land were already on the stage to give their acceptance speech, when one of the producers, holding the envelope up to the camera, said that Moolight had actually won the award. Presenter Warren Beatty reportedly paused for so long because he had been given the envelope for the wrong category, which read, “Emma Stone, La La Land.” Actress Faye Dunaway, however, quickly read the name ‘La La Land. Emma Stone won Best Actress for her role in La La Land, while Manchester by the Sea’s Casey Affleck was named Best Actor.
Viola Davis and Mahershala Ali were named Best Supporting Actress and Actor for their roles in Fences and Moonlight.
Moonlight also took home Best Adapted Screenplay, while Manchester by the Sea won Best Original Screenplay.
