LIVE - OSCAR BLUNDER: See Picture going so wrong! La La lands over Moonlight error

 
Having been announced the winner of the best film at the 2017 Oscars on Sunday night and right in front of 10 million viewers glued to TV,  La La La was turned down just about to receive the gong which was eventually  handed over to Moonlight after a mistake was noticed in what was the most dramatic moment in the history of the AcademMoonlig
 It was an extraordinary scenes, the La La Land team were halfway through their victory speeches, when it was noticed that the wrong film name had been read out by Warren Beatty and that Moonlight was actually the winner. WATCH THIS AGAIN: 

"There's a mistake. Moonlight, you won best picture," Fred Berger, the La La Land producer announced to the gasps of a shocked crowd. He held up the card clearly showing the winner was Moonlight.
The stars and crew of La La Land shuffled off the stage and handed their gold statuettes to a jubilant Moonlight team.
Beatty said he had been given the wrong envelope to open. "I opened the envelope and it said Emma Stone, La La Land," he said, adding he had not done it "to try to be funny".

Emma Stone said backstage: "I was holding my best actress card the whole time so whatever story you heard, I don't know what happened, but I wanted to tell you that."
Casey Affleck won best actor for Manchester By The Sea while Stone won best actress and Damien Chazelle best director both for La La Land.

Viola Davis and Mahershala Ali won supporting Oscars for Fences and Moonlight respectively.
