Price Waterhouse Cooper has said that its partner Brian Cullinan made the error leading to the wrong best picture victor being announced at the Oscars - and that they are "deeply sorry". Beatty opened the envelope and after checking the envelope twice, causing the crowd to chuckle, handed it over to Dunaway who announced "La La Land". Kimmel also mocked Trump's Twitter habit, with an especially tasteless reference: "We're at the Oscars, the Academy Awards", he said.
Emma Stone explained that she actually had her card with her the whole night, she had taken it after being awarded Best Actress earlier on.
When Larson presented the award for Best Actor, she didn't clap for the guy who got it - "Manchester by the Sea" star Casey Affleck - or even look particularly happy about his win. At that point, he showed it to Dunaway, who announced "La La Land".
As well as winning Best Picture, Moonlight shone bright for Best Supporting Actor recipient Mahershala Ali, while the film's director Barry Jenkins and Tarell Alvin McCraney landed Best Adapted Screenplay.
By the time "the biggest mistake in Academy history" was addressed, La La Land's producers had already given their acceptance speeches for an award that wasn't for them. "I didn't want to go up there and take anything from somebody".
However, there are duplicates of the envelopes and while Emma Stone has revealed that she was holding one of the envelopes, Warren and Faye were mistakenly given the duplicate.
"There was a time when I thought this movie was impossible", Barry Jenkins, the director of "Moonlight", said on stage, "Because I couldn't bring it fruition; I couldn't bring myself to tell another story".
"We sincerely apologise to Moonlight, La La Land, Warren Beatty, Faye Dunaway, and Oscar viewers for the error that was made during the award announcement for Best Picture", a PwC statement said. The first thing I did was give him a hug. In a tweet that has since been deleted, PricewaterhouseCoopers partner Brian Cullinan tweeted out a picture of Best Actress victor Emma Stone with the caption, "Best Actress Emma Stone backstage!" "But to hell with dreams, I'm done with it, because this is true".
Backstage after the commotion, Stone admitted that she felt Moonlight deserved the honor for being such a groundbreaking film. We are trying to show you, you and us.
