Video: Oscars 2017 Goof: "La La Land" wrongly announced the winner for best pictures

There was a major goof during Oscar awards last night when Actress/Presenter Faye Dunaway announced "La La Land" as the winner for best pictures that ought to have gone to "Moonlight." 

While the "La La Land" cast was in front of an audience embracing each other and giving their addresses, maker Jordan Horowitz made a declaration that stunned everybody. "Moonlight" had really won, holding up the card proving "Moonlight" was the winner.
Actor/director Warren Beatty, who had presented the award with Faye Dunaway, took responsibility for the mistake, explaining that he and Dunaway had been given a card with the winner for best actress -- Emma Stone for "La La Land" -- and that Dunaway had then mistakenly read that as the winning film.
"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," Beatty told the crowd amid the confusion on stage. "I wasn't trying to be funny."
The "Moonlight" crew then came on stage to receive their award as talk-show host/host for the night, Jimmy Kimmel tried to lighten the mood.

"La La Land" led the night with six awards, including Best Director for Chazelle and Best Actress for Emma Stone while "Moonlight" took home three awards.
