Well ...The Oscars ended on a bizarre note this year.
As Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway read out the Best Picture winner, there immediately seemed to be confusion. Beatty took out a piece of paper from the winner’s envelope, looked at it and checked in the red sleeve for more. After reading it a couple times and looking to the side of the stage as the crowd held their breath, Dunaway read out the supposed winner, La La Land.
But as the producers of the hit modern musical started accepting the award, show producers came onstage and told them that Moonlight had actually won, leading to a chaotic moment where La La Land producer Jordan Hurwitz announced the true Best Picture winner.
And Twitter exploded.
Someone posted video of the moment star Emma Stone realized what happened:
Celebs immediately showed their disbelief — and starting cracking jokes about the viral moment:
