Painfully Awkward VIDEO: Wrong Movie Announced As Best Picture

Wow. That was uncomfortable.

The cast and producers of La La Land responded gallantly after both winning and loosing the Best Picture Oscar.

Slate was nice enough to break things down real slow in the video below, revealing that, for some reason, Warren Beatty had the wrong envelope when he went up to read the Best Picture winner. He had, for some reason, the Best Actress envelope. Since it said Emma Stone, it was assumed that La La Land won.

As La La Land producers make their acceptance speeches, Oscars staff coyly inform them that… whoops, there was a mistake.

Producer Jordan Horowitz owned up to the mistake, but no one seemed to believe him at first.

“This is not a joke,” Horowitz said. “I’m afraid they won the wrong thing.”

Moonlight won, not La La Land.
