The Academy Awards tweets Best Picture for "La La Land" before deleting the tweet Twitter/TheAcademy

The Oscars, once again, came and surprised its viewers. After Steve Harvey made a mistake the year before in Miss Universe 2015, it seems this year the Oscars hosts have had their fair share of announcing mistakes. This time it were Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway who announced that the musical “La La Land” has taken the award for Best Picture.

Many people may have missed viewing the Academy Awards on Sunday night in the US. However, another embarrassing happened to Beatty and Dunaway as they announced the wrong winner for the Best Picture. This mistake happened after the Best Director and Best Actress awards were given to “La La Land” cast just moments before they announced the winner for the Best Picture. “La La Land” was awarded the Best Picture. However, a sudden twist of events happened after the cast and producers were starting to make their speech.

After the whole of “La La Land” cast and staff took the stage to accept the award "La La Land" producer Jordan Horowitz has announced that there had been a mistake, saying the real winner is “Moonlight.” Beatty explained to the audience momentarily what had happened. He said that he was given the wrong card to announce. The card had Emma Stone, who won the best actress award, while the movie was “La La Land.”

“I want to tell you what happened,” he said. “I opened the envelope and it said Emma Stone, 'La La Land.' That’s why I took such a long look at it. I wasn’t trying to be funny.”

Oscars host Jimmy Kimmel made light of the situation, saying he blamed Steve Harvey for the blunder. "Warren, what did you do?" he quipped at Beatty.

Barry Jenkins, writer and director for "Moonlight," graciously accepted the award from "La La Land" filmmakers. "We've been on the road with these guys for so long and that was so gracious, so generous of them. My love to 'La La Land.' My love to everybody," he said on stage.
