The “Oscars” had their very own Steve Harvey moment, when “La La Land” was WRONGLY announced as Best Picture. It turns out presenters FAYE DUNAWAY and WARREN BEATTY were given the wrong card. The real winner was “Moonlight”.
Warren Beatty announced the wrong winner for Best Picture at last night’s Academy Awards. He announced La La Land as the winner before the producers and Jimmy Kimmel came on stage and informed everyone that Moonlight was the winner. Warren was handed the wrong envelope. He said: “I want to tell you what happened. I opened the envelope and it said Emma Stone, La La Land. That’s why I took such a long look at Faye and at you. I wasn’t trying to be funny.”
