Last Night’s Oscar Mistake Was So Awkward

Last night at the Academy Awards, audiences witnessed the most awkward moment in Oscar history: Somehow, the wrong film was announced for Best Picture. Evidently, presenters Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty were given a card that said “Emma Stone, La La Land” (she won Best Actress moments before), and in the confusion, thought La La Land had won Best Picture.

As the La La Land team began acceptance speeches, producer Jordan Horowitz was informed of the mistake, and took the mic to explain that Moonlight had actually won. Both of the teams behind the films handled the moment with graciousness and good senses of humor, despite all of the awkwardness and confusion playing out on live TV.

Host Jimmy Kimmel had the best reaction though: He blamed Steve Harvey.
