Oscars Straight Up Gave Academy Award For Best Picture To Wrong Movie

Oscars 2017 Best Picture La La Land Moonlight

Summit Entertainment

Uhhh, what just happened?

Due to an envelope malfunction, La La Land was incorrectly named the Best Picture winner at this year’s Academy Awards. As the film’s producers were making their heartfelt speeches, word quickly began to spread around them that a mistake had been made. It was revealed that Moonlight had actually be awarded the Best Picture honor and the cast and crew awkwardly came on stage as La La Land‘s squad stood around confused but with a gracious acceptance of their defeat.

It was easily the most bizarre thing in Oscars history and we can’t wait to watch it over and over for the rest of eternity.
