Well THAT was embarrassing! The Oscar Mishap-announces wrong winner for Best Picture

In what is possibly certainly the most shocking moment in Oscars history, Faye Dunaway announced the wrong winner for best picture at the end of the night, awarding the trophy to “La La Land” when it actually was supposed to go to “Moonlight.”

Well THAT was embarrassing! The Oscar Mishap-announces wrong winner for Best Picture

It all started as Dunaway’s co-presenter, Warren Beatty, opened the envelope to read the winner for best picture. He looked confused, took a long pause, and then looked over at Dunaway, who clearly thought he was doing some sort of bit. “You’re impossible!” she said, as the crowd laughed nervously. “Come on!” Beatty handed the envelope to Dunaway, who announced “La La Land!”

Really?! I thought Warren Beatty was drunk, ill or… Then it all made sense, Beatty was acting odd because he knew they’d been given the wrong envelope. Got to hand to old Beatty, he left it up to Dunaway to read and announce the wrong winner! There was no way he was announcing the wrong winner.

Well, that was just embarrassing, possibly the most awkward moment on television or in Oscar history. La La Land is out and Moonlight is in so goes the Oscar.
