[ # ] The Oscars does a Steve Harvey and announces the wrong Best Picture
February 26th, 2017 under Oscars

For months, people have been expecting that La La Land to win Best Picture at the Oscars. Therefore, when it won, no one was surprised. Well, Warren Beatty, looked surprised when he wouldn’t announce the winner and his Bonnie & Clyde co-star Faye Dunaway took a bullet for him and read La La Land as the winner.

Assuming they won, the cast and crew ran up on the stage and accepted the award. As they were wrapping up their speeches, there was commotion going on behind them. That was because, the wrong movie was announced as the winner and Moonlight was the true winner.

WTF happened? According to Beatty, he was given an envelope that read Emma Stone, La La Land and he knew something was wrong. That was why he looked like he had shampoo in his eyes.

How he was given the wrong envelope we don’t know. That is something we will find out tomorrow.

The thing we know tonight is that both the casts and crews from La La Land and Moonlight handled Oscars’ biggest mistake with class. Well the biggest mistake since Marisa Tomei won Best Supporting Actress for My Cousin Vinnie. We all went there.

When it comes to the host, not only did Jimmy Kimmel do a great job throughout the show, he handled the gaffe perfectly. I can’t wait to see what reprieve he gives everyone on Jimmy Kimmel Live tomorrow. I am sure he will at least have Beatty on the show in some form of the way. The late night host will probably blame Matt Damon for switching up the envelopes. Although, if he did, then wouldn’t he have made Manchester By the Sea the winner.

Either way, a forgettable Oscars is now forever memorable.
