Star-Studded Oscars End In A Big Oops

The buzz surrounding the Oscars has been huge this year. Everything came to a head tonight as the year’s biggest awards ceremony went live for the 89th year. The event was hosted by Jimmy Kimmel and featured some funny antidotes, political jabs, and memorable moments.

One moment that will go down in history will be the final award. It was exciting to see Hollywood vets Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty come out to present the award for Best Motion Picture. After listing off the nominees, Beatty opens the envelope and seemed very confused. Regardless, he read the results and announced that La La Land has taken the top prize for the evening.

All of a sudden it was like the Miss America moment that haunts Steve Harvey’s dreams. The acceptance speech is quickly interrupted as the show’s producer announces that La La Land did not win, but Moonlight was the actual winner. The cast and crew of the year’s biggest musical was very supportive and happy to give their gold man trophies to the real winners.

Warren Beatty also returned to the stage to apologize for the mix up and what had happened, a mix up of envelopes.

Overall, the night was filled with much-deserved awards, funny moments, and a beautiful memorial song for the fallen stars.
