In what is a gaffe that will go down as an all-timer, Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty mistakenly read La La Land as the Oscar winner for Best Picture at Sunday night’s Academy Awards.
After the cast and crew for La La Land went up to accept the award, it was announced that the actual Best Picture winner was Moonlight. Whoops!
It was a blunder of epic proportions, and that of course meant that Twitter would take full advantage of the opportunity to mock it. Here are some examples:
