Wrong best Picture.. at the worse possible time the Academy Awards went wrong, right at the climax La La Land was wrongly announced as the winner.
The cast and crew of La La Land where already into the acceptance speech when the proceeding where interrupted.
Warren Beatty said it looked like he was given the wrong envelope. Unknow to the audience Warren could see the card said “Emma Stone, La La Land”. This card was infact a duplicate of best actress! (there are aways two in case things go wrong!!!) This was puzzling for Warren as he was expecting just a film title! He checked again, then showed the envelope to his co-presenter Faye Dunaway. She just read the film title she could see… “La La Land”!
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 [the audience], I wasn’t trying to be funny.”
Producers scrambled to sort it out. Finally, Moonlight was announced as the winner of best picture.
Wrong best Picture…
Check out the pictures in all the agonising glory…
