Oscars 2017: Twitterati can't handle the faux pas of Moonlight winning Best Picture
There's really no debate about this. The reigning moment of the Oscars 2017 was when the wrong name was announced by Warren Beatty for Best Picture. At first, La La Land was announced best picture, and the cast and crew of the film also arrived on stage to receive the award.
It was then producer of the film Jordan Horowitz, who announced that there was a mistake, and that the real winner was Moonlight.
