‘moonlight’ wins best picture oscar after confusing mix-up

About two minutes after La La Land was named best picture at the 89th Academy Awards, there was a twist ending: Presenters Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty had read the wrong name and it was, in fact, Moonlight that won the night’s big prize.

The film actually picked up three awards total — including adapted screenplay and supporting actor for Mahershala Ali — but La La Land still won six Oscars, including best director for Damien Chazelle and best actress for Emma Stone. Fences star Viola Davis and Casey Affleck of Manchester By The Sea also picked up their first Oscar wins, for supporting actress and best actor respectively.
