There was mass confusion at the end of last night’s Oscar telecast as Faye Dunaway announced the wrong movie as the winner of Best Picture.
As explained later by Warren Beatty, who was presenting the final award of the night with Dunaway, they were not given the right envelope before they went on stage. Instead they were given an envelope that said Emma Stone of “La La Land” had won Best Actress. In the confusion Dunaway announced “La La Land” as the winner of Best Picture.
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has made YouTube take down almost all videos that had the entire incident, which lasts close to 8 minutes. However, Mediaite has the entire video, which you can watch by clicking here.
