CelebNMovies247.com has been saying the best movie of the year was Moonlight since day one and we were right! We love La La Land, but Moonlight is hands down the best movie.

One of the craziest moments in the history of the Oscars was when Faye Dunaway incorrectly announced La La Land as the winner of Best Picture. Moonlight was the real winner, while the producers of La La Land accepted the award, Jimmy rushed on stage while Jordan Horowitz announced that the other film had actually won.

The producer of La La Land Jordan Horowitz said while holding out the statue:

“There’s a mistake. Moonlight, you guys won Best Picture. This is not a joke. This is not a joke. Moonlight has won Best Picture.”

Warren Beatty, who presented the award, stood by the Kimmel side to explain what had happened. Betty says he was given the wrong envelope and he was reading the Best Actress winner announcement.

Emma Stone SHUTS DOWN Jimmy and Warren’s excuse. Emma has just come fourth that “I was also holding my Best Actress card at that time … I don’t know what happened.”
