OSCARS — Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway stood on stage last night and ranted about a whole lot of nothing for a few minutes. Finally, the duo proceeded to announce the Oscar for Best Picture.
Beatty opened the envelope. He then said, “And the winner for Best Picture is….” For some reason, he stopped reading. He looked very confused. After an uncomfortable pause, he slanted the envelope towards Dunaway. She said, “La La Land.” The audience exploded in applause, and the entire crew of La La Land took the stage.
As the La La Land cast and crew were handed their Oscars, one of the winners began giving a ‘thank you’ speech.
While his speech was being given, a commotion of sorts started to unfold on stage as show officials entered the scene to take back the Oscars. For a moment, everyone was wondering, ‘Is this a joke of some kind?’
Confusion was in full swing when one of the La La Land winners said, “There’s a mistake. We didn’t win the Oscar. This is not a joke. Really, we did not win.” He then looked into the audience and said, “Moonlight, you are the winner.”
Host, Jimmy Kimmel took to the microphone and confirmed the mistake. Everyone in the audience was shocked, including the members of Moonlight.
As the new winners slowly took to the stage and accepted the Oscars from the crew of La La Land, Warren Beatty explained what happened. He said the envelope read, “Emma Stone, La La Land.” Stone had won Best Actress moments earlier. Apparently, the wrong envelope was handed to Beatty as he entered the stage.
Perhaps if the Oscars spent less time bashing on Trump and more time focusing on the awards, the mistake would not have taken place. What a mess…
