The highlight of last year's "Oscar" was the presentation of the long-awaited reward for Leonardo Di Caprio. Internet a few weeks discussing the news in every way.
What happened under the curtain ceremony this year eclipsed all previous sensations. Announcing the winner in the main nomination - "Film of the Year", the leading - Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway made a mistake and called the film "La La Land". When the team of the film came on the scene for the gold statuettes, organizers quickly corrected oversight. The best film was "Moonlight."
Sunday night's Oscars ceremony went out with a historic bang as the wrong film was announced as the Best Picture winner, then corrected mid-acceptance speech. Presenting the award alongside Warren Beatty, who opened the envelope, Faye Dunaway announced 'La La Land' as Best Picture. After producer Jordan Horowitz began his acceptance speech, there was some commotion onstage before he looked down at the card he was holding and announced there had been a mistake: 'Moonlight' was, in fact, Best Picture. Startled, the 'La La Land' cast and filmmakers began to exit the stage as writer-director Barry Jenkins and the 'Moonlight' crew took the mic. Beatty said he had been given the wrong card, which had Emma Stone's name on it, along with the film for which she had just won Best Actress. Closing out the show, host Jimmy Kimmel joked that he'd never be back. "I knew I would screw this show up, I really did.” See our full coverage of the 89th Annual Academy Awards at time.com.
