Emma Stone Reacts To Oscars 2017 Best Picture Mistake: 'I love 'Moonlight'!'

The actress was reacting to the weird set of events, which saw the American actor announce that La La Land had won the Academy Award for best picture, when in fact, Moonlight had won the gong.

"I mean, I am so beyond excited for Moonlight", she said.

HollywoodLifers, were you happy for Moonlight?

"I like that we had seen them before in a way that kind of made them feel like an old Hollywood pairing where William Powell and Myrna Loy would do those movies together; Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, obviously; Katherine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy", he said in an interview with Variety. "That's why I took such a long look at Faye, and at you [the audience], I wasn't trying to be amusing".

'I think it's one of the best films of all time... Even before she won the award, she was having a blast backstage with her La La Land co-star, Ryan Gosling. "This is Moonlight for Best Picture".

Each one of them stands on a wing of the stage and hands the envelopes to the presenters right before they walk out.

"If it's my mum's favourite, it must be OK - she's picky", Emma - who plays Mia - says with a laugh.

Simmons is best known for his role as music instructor Terence Fletcher in the 2014 movie Whiplash for which he won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor.

Barry also added that the moment when his film was announced as the victor for Best Picture, he went 'speechless.' He added that such moments are special but not in the way you expect them to be.

Thanks to social media, we are given an insight into just what goes on off the red carpet, and just how big an A-list glam squad really is.

Meanwhile, Empire star Taraji P. Henson starred in this year's Best Picture Oscar nominee Hidden Figures while on the hit Fox drama. "The folks from La La Land were so gracious. I just wanted to be more fulfilled as an actor". Stone gaped backstage. "I was still in such a noisy train backstage that I was on another planet already. I think it's an incredible outcome but a very odd happening for Oscar history". But removing her performance out of the context of the controversies, Isabelle Huppert is mind numbingly terrific as the corporate woman, whose life takes a hard turn after she was raped by a masked intruder.

The 89th Academy Awards ceremony witnessed an awkward moment when La La Land was erroneously announced the Best Picture. "Nothing changes when I go back home".
