The Internet Is Freaking Out Over the Biggest Oscars Fail in History

The Internet Is Freaking Out Over the Biggest Oscars Fail in History

Whoops...

In a twist that absolutely no one saw coming: Moonlight won the Academy Award for Best Picture. But! That's not the whole story. Presenter Warren Beatty originally read the winner off as La La Land, and the entire cast rushed up on stage to accept their award.

 

Only, something wasn't right. As it turns out, Beatty was given the wrong envelope, which explains the mishap. Still, confusion ensued.

 

“I want to tell you what happened,” Beatty said, retaking the stage. “I opened the envelope and it said Emma Stone, La La Land. That’s why I took such a long look at Faye and at you. I wasn’t trying to be funny.”

 

The final-hour fake-out was met with outrage, shock, and a lot of jokes from the Internet. With our mouths still agape, here are the funniest reactions to the most epic Oscars fail of all time.
