Moonlight and La La Land Confusion

The biggest Hollywood night, The 89th Academy Awards, happened to commend on 26th February 2017 at Los Angeles. With all the excitement and zest, the night passed by leaving behind some beautiful memories. However splendid the night was, still there happened an unavoidable mistake. Yes you guess it right, I am talking about the best picture award's confusion. 
Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty announcing
Presenters Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty mistakenly announced La La Land as the winner of the night's biggest award i.e The best picture's award, with cast and crew flooding the stage. Producer Jordan Horowitz delivered his acceptance speech, getting all into it, before the truth gradually spread through the group of people on the stage. (This is embarrassing!!)
Horowitz corrected the mistake by announcing: "There's a mistake. Moonlight, you guys won best picture." On the shocked and surprised reaction from crowd, he repeated: "This is not a joke. Moonlight has won best picture." 

Jenkins holding Oscar
Jenkins, understandably blindsided, came to the stage and said: "Even in my dreams this could not be true. But to hell with dreams! I'm done with it because this is true, oh my goodness." He further said: "And it is true, it's not fake. We have been on the road with these guys for so long and that was so gracious, so generous of them. My love to La La Land. My love to everybody. Man." 
Though it seemed like the mistake of Beatty/Dunaway, later discovers it was a crew member's responsibility to ensure the correct envelopes make it on stage. Thus an official statement has since been delivered, clarifying that the company entrusted to manage the winning envelopes was at fault and it was not Beatty/Dunaway' mistake.
“The presenters had mistakenly been given the wrong category envelope and when discovered, was immediately corrected," PricewaterhouseCoopers said. "We are currently investigating how this could have happened, and deeply regret that this occurred. We appreciate the grace with which the nominees, the Academy, ABC, and Jimmy Kimmel handled the situation."
Emma Stone
Soon after the award was announced, another twist as Emma Stone revealed she was holding her Best Actress card the entire time. Emma told press backtage,“I f***ing loved Moonlight. God, I love Moonlight so much, I’m so excited for Moonlight! And, of course, it was an amazing thing to hear La La Land. I think we all would have loved to win Best Picture but we are so excited for Moonlight. I think it is one of the best films of all time. So I was pretty beside myself. I was also holding my Best Actress in a leading role card that entire time. So whatever story - I don’t mean to start stuff - but whatever story that was, I had the card. So, I’m not sure what happened. And I really wanted to talk to you guys first..

The shocking twist, itself worthy of an award, capped off a slightly disappointing night for La La Land, which also failed to pick up many of the technical awards it was expected to, though the film did pick up Best Director, Best Actress and Cinematography. In total, Chazelle's film took home six awards.

Moonlight meanwhile, in addition to the night's biggest award, ensnared Best Supporting actor thanks to Ali along with the Original Screenplay prize.
