A Big Oscars Mix Up Happened When ‘Best Film’ Was Announced Wrong
Posted: 5:53 am Monday, February 27th, 2017
De ja vu happened last night at The Oscars… we felt like we were watching Miss Universe all over again when Moonlight won Best Picture at the 2017 Oscars last night, after it was incorrectly announced by presenters Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway that La La Land took home the top prize. The mistake was cleared up as the La La Land team were in the process of giving thanks. Yeah…. Talk about awkward….but despite the mix-up, La La Land took home six other Oscars–including Best Actress for Emma Stone and Best Director for Damien Chazelle. The night also saw Casey Affleck named Best Actor (Manchester by the Sea), Viola Davis winning Best Supporting Actress (Fences) and Mahershala Ali being recognized as Best Supporting Actor (Moonlight).
