Academy Accidentally Awards Best Picture Oscar To Wrong Movie Causing Chaos On Stage

This year’s Oscars will certainly not be one we will ever forget.

For Best Picture, senior citizen and noted Soviet sympathizer Warren Beatty read-off La La Land as the winner.

There was only one problem

He read the wrong card. LA La Land didn’t win, Moonlight did.

The error wasn’t noticed until the La La Land team was already in the middle of their speeches.

The news had already reported on it but had to change quickly.

People had plenty of jokes on Twitter about it.

Grandpa Beatty tried and failed to explain what happened:

If this was a prank, then I think it either spectacularly failed or ingeniously worked.

Wow. What an ending. Did you watch? Share your thoughts.
