Oscars Best Picture Mistake in 2017 - What Went Wrong, What Happened Next?

Thank you very much.

PriceWaterhouseCoopers took full responsibility for the botched announcement, saying in a statement, "We sincerely apologize to Moonlight, La La Land, Warren Beatty, Faye Dunaway, and Oscar viewers for the error that was made during the award announcement for best picture". The official regulations state that winners can not sell their Oscar without first offering to sell it back to the Academy for $1, which makes each one worth a mere $1.

WARREN Beatty and Faye Dunaway are set to right last year's wrong after being confirmed to present this year's Best Picture honour at Sunday's Oscars Ceremony. She didn't hesitate: "La La Land".

However, this offer was reportedly turned down by the cast and crew of the celebrated film.

Those who stood closest to the microphone were ecstatic, but further back in the thong, there was a growing disquiet.

However, this year, no one had to blow up the envelopes to see what they said.

He said to the Hollywood Reporter: "It's bittersweet because when that switch happened, I didn't enjoy it".

"I thought there was a police action or something, maybe a terrorist attack happening", said awards consultant Lisa Taback. "So, there was nearly a stigma that I felt". Instead of saying the correct name of the victor (Moonlight), the card read: "Emma Stone, La La Land".

Frances McDormand, Sam Rockwell and Guillermo del Toro are each heavily favoured to win, while Aussie golden girl Margot Robbie is nominated for a Best Actress award.

It seemed the audience still didn't believe him so grabbed the correct envelope and held it aloft: "MOONLIGHT".

Emmy, Golden Globe and Academy Award-winning actress Faye Dunaway made her acting debut on Broadway in 1962. They gave me the biggest gift: "poverty", he joked.

"If the font were any bigger on the Oscar envelopes, they could be one of the three billboards", read another tweet.

TMZ is reporting that the pair has been given a second shot at handing out the award after the epic mix-up previous year saw them accidentally announce the wrong name.
