It was the extraordinary scene that marked the 2017 Oscars ceremony, Emma Stone and the La La Land team were halfway through their victory speeches when it was noticed that the wrong film name had been read out and Moonlight was actually the winner, reports the Telegraph.
The actress was on stage with her co-stars and the filmmakers as they accepted the top gong of the evening, before it became apparent the wrong movie had been read out by its presenters Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway.
The mix-up saw the musical's producers finishing off their acceptance speeches before La La Land producer Jordan Horowitz revealed the mistake, prompting a brief moment of panicked chaos on-stage.
The stars and crew of La La Land shuffled off the stage and handed their gold statuettes to a jubilant Moonlight team.
- It is the biggest Oscar fu*k up ever, film critic Ann Lind Andersen simply stated on live Danish television, not long after the whole film world had been shocked to the core over the wrong movie being declared the winner of the most important prize of them all.
