Latest and Greatest: Mishap at the Oscars

Victoria Fredericks, Writer

During this year’s Oscars there was a mistake announcing ‘Best Picture.’ When Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway first announced who won, they said La La Land. The cast of La La Land gave their speeches, and then someone helping run the Oscars came on stage to announce the real winner: Moonlight. This was caused since the announcers were accidentally given the envelope for ‘Best Actress,’ which was announced just previous.

This moment quickly circulated around the internet. People couldn’t help but compare this moment to Steve Harvey’s mistake when he announced Miss Universe. It was a tragic event but made for a funny story. 

The Producer of ‘La La Land,’ Jordan Horowitz, announces ‘Moonlight’ as the actual winner of “Best Picture.”
