OSCAR GAFFE: Moonlight named Best Picture after major Oscars gaffe


WAS MADE TONIGHT.. AND NOT IN A GOOD WAY. “MOONLIGHT YOU GUYS WON BEST PICTURE. THIS IS NOT A JOKE.. THIS IS NOT A JOKE IM AFRAID THEY READ THE WRONG THING. THIS IS NOT A JOKE.. MOONLIGHT HAS WON BEST PICTURE. ACTOR WARREN BEATTY WAS SOMEHOW GIVEN A CARD THAT SAID LA- LA-LAND… INSTEAD OF MOONLIGHT. AFTER 89-YEARS OF ACADEMY AWARD SHOWS… NO ONE HAS EVER SCREWED UP THE WINNER FOR THE MARQUEE AWARD. DESPITE ALL THE CHAOS AND CONFUSION… THE MAKERS OF “LA-LA- LAND” GRACIOUSLY HANDED OVER THEIR STATUES TO THE PEOPLE BEHIND “MOONLIGHT”.. WHILE HOST JIMMY KIMMEL TRIED TO LAUGH IT OFF. @3:10 – GUYS THIS IS VERY UNFORTUNATE WHAT HAPPENED.. PERSONALLY i BLAME STEVE HARVEY, I WOULD LIKE TO SEE YOU GET AN OSCAR ANYWAY.. WHY CAN’T WE JUST GIVE OUT A WHOLE BUNCH.. IM GONNA BE VERY PROUD TO HAND THIS OVER TO MY FRIENDS WITH MOONLIGHT. NOW AS FOR WHAT EXACTLY HAPPENED… WARREN BEATTY ANNOUNCED IT TO THE CROWD HIMSELF. @3:40″ warren, what did you do? i want to tell you what happened. I opened the envelope and it said emma stone, “la la land.” that’s why i took such a long look at faye and at you, i wasn’t trying to be funny. well, you were funny. thank you very much. Thank you very much. wow — this is “moonlight,” the best picture.” FINALLY… AFTER ALL THE COMMOTION SETTLED… THE DIRECTOR OF MOONLIGHT WAS ABLE TO GET UP ONTO THE STAGE AND GIVE HIS ACCEPTANCE SPEECH. ” (sot: barry jenkins/director, moonlight) 12:13:37 in my wildest dreams i didn’t think this could be true, but to hell with dreams, this is true, oh my goodness. SO FAR… THERE’S BEEN NO OFFICIAL WORD FROM THE ACADEMY ON THE DEBACLE. AS FOR THE AWARD SHOW AS A WHOLE.. “LA LA LAND” WON A TOTAL OF SIX OSCARS TONIGHT… INCLUDING BEST ACTRESS EMMA STONE AND BEST DIRECTOR. “MOONLIGHT” WON THREE… INCLUDING BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR FOR OAKLAND NATIVE MAHERSH-a- LAL CASEY AFFLECK WON BEST ACTOR FOR HIS ROLE IN “MANCHESTER BY THE SEA.”

    The oscar presenters are supposed to not know the winners in advance but Warren, as you can see and tell knows something different as he is surprised, stalls and rechecks the envelope. Warren who was to announce the winner knows something is wrong and does the unmanly thing and gives it to faye, to read and take the heat. Poor Faye you can tell she does not know what Warren knows. Then to make matters worse, two men with head sets come on stage with the Moonlight card and do a switch.We the people watching are then told it was read wrong. Bad cover up and another hit on poor Faye. Both movies were great and the nominees were respectful, gracious and dignified but not the oscars. Maybe it was Donald and the russians that are to blame. The oscars just became PC and milk toast, how to try and be so right and be so wrong.

    For some reason, a production assistant makes a mistake by giving Warren Beatty the wrong envelop.  Warren realizes it when he sees Emma Stone name on the card and is thinking about what to do when Faye, maybe thinking he needs his glasses to read, rudely takes the card from Warren's hand and reads the title on it out loud without completely reading the full card first ! As long as no one read the wrong card, it was possible to fix the mistake. Warren did the right thing first : he didn't read the card out loud.  Faye Dunaway made the only big mistake that should have not been made and put the mess on stage and on the ceremony.  "Well done", Bonnie !

    This is an illuminati tactic. Warren sold his soul for fame and every so often these stars are required to under go public humiliation to maintain their wealth and status and display their allegiance to Lucifer.

    Really Fake News to the rescue! 'CNN has learned, from our always reliable confidential sources, that Russia hacked Faye Dunaway's and Warren Beatty's brains…'

    I know it was an awful mistake and so embarrassing but dam, the way he pulled that card from Beatty's hand was worse than Denzel's puss when Casey Affleck won!!!!

    Update: Screenshot of the envelope shows it says Best Actress (black font on red envelope -real high visibility). But could you afford the FUCKING INK to put the category on the actual FUCKING CARD??

    Such a chaotic situation, and a great example of how liberals cannot even run their own stupid awards show – no less our country and our lives.

    How the hell did mahershala get best supporting actor? Like seriously where is the acting skill involved? He literally just played himself. Now Heath Ledger as joker. THAT was an Oscar worthy performance. Oscars nowadays don't mean fucking shit. They just hand em out to any fucking body. Pathetic…

    Such a sad joke these folks are. A little LESS time, focus, dedication and energy used for bashing Trump and a little MORE time focus, dedication and energy just trying to do your jobs and get through your own award show without screwing it up in 2018 please? Thank You.

    0:24 To clarify: This is NOT the first time such a mistake has been made. Maybe for this specific award, but I understand wrong names have been read at the Oscars years before.

    TO EVERYONE in the comments section who called Horowitz "rude" and "arrogant" for "ripping the card" out Warren's hand, please get over it.

    It was a confusing and embarrassing moment for everyone. He wanted to clear it up and get of the stage as soon as possible. I probably would have done the same thing. He didn't deliberately snatch the card like that out of intention to me rude. Geez. All of you people act like you KNOW if someone is rude or not when clearly you are not taking into account the predicament. At. All.

    It's basic human psychology.

    – – – – – – – – – – – –
    Just one thing I hope DOES NOT happen. I hope nobody blames Warren Beatty, because it was not his fault at all. He was given the wrong card.

    Jordon Holowitz is shaking from the rage and inappropriately asking Moonlight team to come up. What the hell was that? He is an ungracious, narcissistic and terribly rude person who thought it was ok to snap at Warren Beatty! Calm down Jordon, you just produced bunch of average movies. I am so glad La La Land didn't win.

    The wrong card has never happened until now…. So who knows the winner and when?? Because if it is known before hand, they let that go on way too long

    Karmic justice for the relentless Trump-bashing. Foul-ups such as 'Best Picture' and the 'Janet Patterson memoriam photo' usually come in three's; The 1st was booking meathead Jimmy Kimmel as the Oscar's host.

    You can not blame Warren Beatty. He realised that something was wrong and hesitated. He checked twice whether there was another card as he knew this couldn't be right. He showed it to Faye and she announced the winner without thorough look on the card as she thought he was trying to be funny or joking around. Actually you can not blame them both.

    Much rudeness and disrespect shown by Mr. LaLa Land when he ripped the Best Picture card out of Warren Beatty's hands. The man's a Hollywood legend. Wish Mr. Beatty had produced a bottle of shampoo and smeared the contents all over the dude's big bald head.

    The REAL issue is about Oscar credibility ALL these years.How MANY "Winners" have an Oscar on their Mantel under error? Probably MORE than you think.

    I was posting this to the Academy Oscar Awards 2018: After my first comment here LA LA LA BEST PICTURE? I keept watching the Award Show aaand, IT IS A FAKE!!!! After the German producer was talking about the blue eyes (very importand for German Nazis) of his wife, I could see it is a special kind of fake just like the fake last Olympics in Germany. It was made for to become Germany popular as a friendly party-country with friendly :(:( German. So could get Germany popular in the world as fake-friendly-German. Than become, as you know, Trump, a German Emigrant, President in USA. On this way and slowly Hitlers vision, to controll the world, becomes moore and moore happen. Pls., all the Citicens with UK/Irish background, don't let it happend!!!! DON'T TRUST EVER ANY GERMAN!!!

    MaCar Car, I also posted this 🙂 :
    Realy, La La La for best Picture?! Even Warren Beatty could not belive this… Just like the bad taste the vote for Trump for this country of freedom. I can't also not belive the cooparation of police department Chicago with Germany. USA hires since years German Nazis as Police officers… What happened to USA, all bad taste?
