Multiple records were set at the Oscars Sunday night, including Moonlight's important Best Picture win. The La La Land cast and crew walked on stage and started to give their speeches, then a producer ran and told them they had lost and Moonlight was the real victor.
"Cool", she said. "I guess we made history tonight. I wish that they had the full experience of winning best pic without the awkwardness of it all".
Check out the five major moments that make this year's Oscars a ceremony we'll never forget.
In the media room after the show, however, Emma - whose Best Actress award had been handed out prior to Best Picture - insisted she had her card in her possession throughout the debacle. "So whatever story - I don't mean to start stuff - but whatever story that was, I had that card", she began, referencing the rumors.
As fans will already know, Warren Beatty had a major slip up while attempting to present the biggest award of the night to Moonlight, instead announcing that the victor was La La Land.
Meanwhile, Emma picked up the Best Actress prize for her role in "La La Land", and paid tribute to her fellow nominees Meryl Streep, Ruth Negga, Isabelle Huppert and Natalie Portman in her speech. When she did finally acknowledge him, her screw face (whether in jest or otherwise) said it all: Let this Oscar-nominated actress have their dang minute on camera!
Praising the film, she said: "I f***ing love Moonlight. I wasn't trying to be amusing". To our whole crew, everyone that put their heart and souls into this film, I'm going to find you all individually, and I'm going to thank you. However, I am sure the jury would not consider nothing more than a nomination for her, since Loving wasn't exactly loved well by everyone.
"The presenters had mistakenly been given the wrong category envelope and when discovered, was immediately corrected".
She added: "I realise a moment like this is a huge confluence of luck and opportunity so I want to thank Damien Chazelle to be given the opportunity". I don't know what happened.
The best movie of 2016 actually won best picture! "Martha carries one of those briefcases, I carry the other".
According to a tweet from Amy Kaufman, a writer for The Los Angeles Times, one of her colleagues on site overheard some chatter backstage.
