There are many things which can go wrong with you at any given day but this one here is pure classic.
What Actually Happened?
Stage was set to announce the “Best Pictures” award in Oscars 2017.
Once the award presenters Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway opened the envelop and announced the award of “Best Picture”:
“..and the academy award goes to LA LA Land”
Hearing this, the cast and crew of La La Land came on the stage and started making their acceptance speeches.
However, There was a twist!
Backstage, a crew of Oscars was nervous as hell as he said, “Beatty took the wrong envelope!”
He ran onstage and informed the ones who were there.
After hearing this, Jordan Horowitz, the producer of La La Land, took the mike and said,
“Sorry, guys, hold on. There’s a mistake. Moonlight, you guys won Best Picture. This is not a joke.”
“The folks from La La Land have been so gracious. I can’t imagine being in their position.“, said Barry Jenkins, the director of Moonlight.
Quite an embarrassing moment for presenters as well the those who gave acceptance speeches without actually winning the award.
Let’s have a look how twitter reacted to this incident:

How on earth can you have the wrong card for Best Picture? What a pathetic, toe-curling farce. #oscars
