Moonlight Wins Best Picture After Colossal Screw-Up
What the hell just happened? Seriously, that might have been one of the biggest mistakes in modern pop culture history. La La Land went up stage and accepted the Academy Award for the biggest award of the night, Best Picture. But after the first two speeches, there was rustling behind the speech-givers only to see a producer announce that Moonlight, not La La Land, had won for Best Picture. It’s an amazing fuck up beyond epic proporotion by everyone involved.
Beatty knows there's a problem and doesn't know what to do. Dunaway thinks he's joking and reads the movie title. pic.twitter.com/6BJ62ER3iP

Watch the tape, and you’ll see Warren Beatty, famed actor, had the award card for ‘Best Actress in a Leading Role’, not ‘Best Picture.’ Hence, why La La Land showed up due to Emma Stone’s win. Beatty paused for a second, and Faye Dunaway thought he was kidding, therefore, she shouted out La La Land. It’s amazing. I can’t believe this happened. We’re already seeing blame getting thrown around and literally everyone will end up under the bus before this thing is over. I feel like this should be a Curb Your Enthusiasm episode.
When do you think the Oscars memes will go away? Tuesday? I’m already bored of them. Congrats to Moonlight, thanks to Oscars for this big mistake.
