    Okay, that was embarrassing. I thought the guy at the end saying Moonlight actually won was just grand standing. But he was serious. Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway announced La La Land as the winner for Best Picture. La La Land crew came up to receive the award, started their acceptances speeches and everything. Then it was revealed that they actually lost and Moonlight won.

    Gotta be the biggest gaffe in Oscar history. Youtube vid pending..

    Quick update on this.. apparently what happened was Warren Beatty was handed the wrong card to announce the winner. He was given the card for best actress, which was Emma Stone for La La Land, instead of best picture, which was supposed to be Moonlight.

    So it wasn't the announcers fault. Dunaway saw La La Land on the card and spoke for Beatty, who was obviously very confused on what he was supposed to say.. whoever was in charge of handing out the cards screwed this one up.

    Here's half of it anyways. Couldn't find the beginning part.

    This was just so bad.... I don't know why, but I almost can't watch stuff like this. It makes me nauseous. I feel so bad for the 'La La Land' crew.
