Oscar winners 2017

In a rare and unexpected gaffe, "La La Land" which dominated the 89th Academy Awards, was announced the winner of the Best Picture category, when in fact it was "Moonlight".

Presenters Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway who were called to announce the winner, pondered a while before reading the cue card, which ended up being wrong.

The "La La Land" makers were mostly through their speech before the error was realised, and a representative said: "There's a mistake... 'Moonlight', you guys won Best Picture... This is not a joke, I'm afraid they read the wrong thing. 'Moonlight' Best Picture."
