La La Land is tied for the most nominated movie of all time, and watching the ceremony it became frequently less interesting to see the impressive film collect its accolades, aside from Emma Stone’s impassioned and amazing acceptance speech for Best Actress. When Hollywood institutions Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway (the 1967 fictional Bonnie and Clyde) announced La La Land won Best Picture nobody was surprised.
Then a man with headphones began to quietly whisper to the people on stage that were currently experiencing professional euphoria that in fact they did not win. Moonlight won. It’s a classic Australia’s Next Top Model / Miss Universe style mishap that should not be happening right now. It’s just embarrassing. But it’s also cringeworthily hilarious. Not for the La La Land folk, or the awkward Moonlight folk that didn’t know how to handle this. But for us, the audience.
Twitter predictably is already on top of it:
Oscars’ social media manager: WE ARENT GETTING ENOUGH BUZZ ON TWITTER
Oscars’ stage manager: Here take this envelope instead

Again we love Moonlight and we love La La Land. We do not love the idiot that gave Warren Beatty the wrong envelope.
