  • Oscars Best Picture Mistake in 2017 - What Went Wrong, What Happened Next?

The cast and crew of Moonlight had their best picture win previous year completely overshadowed by the fact the award was given to the wrong victor first.

Last year's Academy Awards will go down in history for being the one with the big mix-up, when the wrong envelope was handed to presenters Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty, leading them to announce La La Land as the victor for Best Picture over real victor Moonlight.

Guillermo del Toro and "The Shape of Water" won best picture at the Oscars.

In 2017 Dunaway read the wrong best picture victor after the pair was handed the best actress category envelope. There's a chemistry there, there always has been.

Beatty looked down at it, no doubt with flashbacks from a year ago racing through his mind, quipped: 'Are you sure?' Aside from Orson Welles for Citizen Kane, Beatty is the only person to have been nominated for acting in, directing, writing, and producing the same film, and he did so twice: first for Heaven Can Wait (with Buck Henry as co-director), and again with Reds. "So, there was nearly a stigma that I felt". "I want to tell you what happened", Warren said. I...talked to them very nicely, the accountants.




She said: "It was a standing ovation. And we gotta move on and forgive, you know?" "It's so nice seeing you again", Beatty told the audience, to which Dunaway responded, "As they say, presenting is lovelier the second time around".

But the biggest change became quickly apparent Sunday as Viola Davis presented the award for best supporting actor.

After Beatty opened the envelope onstage, he hesitated.

"I thought I could have done something, surely".
