The 89th Academy Awards opened with an anti-Trump rant and closed with the biggest mistake in award show history.
During the presentation for the winner of Best Picture, co-presenter Warren Beatty announced that “La La Land” had won the award. However, after the cast had taken the stage they came to find out there had been a mistake and in fact, “Moonlight” had won the award.
Beatty explained, “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.”
It seems from the reporting that PricewaterhouseCoopers, which tabulates the Oscar votes, is responsible for the blunder.
“We sincerely apologize to Moonlight, La La Land, Warren Beatty, Faye Dunaway, and Oscar viewers for the error that was made during the award announcement for best picture,” PricewaterhouseCoopers said following the incident.
