Oops, wrong film named Oscars 2017 winner! See full video of the epic Oscars mix-up
A wrong envelope was opened by award category presenters, Ms. Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty who looked unsure when they announced La La Land as the Best Picture winner. Full La La Land team came up on stage joyous and started giving acceptance speech when the category presenters and host Jimmy Kimmel revealed the mix-up.
Here’s the video of the Oscars 2017 Best Picture Mix up. See where it all went wrong and see the reactions:
The audience was stunned and Twitter was inundated with stunning response, memes, jokes and opinions.
In true spirit, La La Land producer Jordan Horowitz sportingly said that it was a mistake and the he announced Moonlight as the Best Picture. But La La Land won awards in many other categories this year including Emma Stone who bagged the Best Actress role at Oscars 2017. Host Jimmy Kimmel quickly joked that the mix-up was all “Steve Harvey’s fault” – Steve Harvey is famous for announcing the wrong contestant as Miss Universe in 2015. Audit house Pricewaterhousecoopers have said ‘sincere sorry’ to the award presenters, both film’s teams and the viewers for the embarrassing mistake and are investigating how it happened.
The 89th Academy Awards ceremony – Oscars 2017 – was presented on Sunday, 26th February 2017 at Los Angeles with Jimmy Kimmel as the host. While the evening was a highlight for the winners and guests which included Bollywood beauties Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone, instantly Oscars 2017 started trending on social media for all the wrong reasons -
