It’s a day after the annual Academy Awards and people are still murmuring about the epic stuff up that resulted in ‘La La Land’ incorrectly announced as winner of Best Picture instead of ‘Moonlight’.
Just in case you missed it, Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway – best known for their roles as Bonnie and Clyde – took the stage to present the award and announced the winner was romantic musical ‘La La Land’.
As the cast of ‘La La Land’ stood on stage experiencing the joy of receiving the award and had begun to thank the people responsible for getting them there, Beatty explained he had received the wrong envelope and that the winner was actually ‘Moonlight’.

This wasn’t the only weird and wonderful moment that went down at the 89th Academy Awards however.
Twitter went mad after we all came to the horrifying realization that our very own Nicole Kidman can’t…clap?

The internet also let us know that Christine Teigan enjoyed a few Zs during the ceremony.
If this was any other celebrity, perhaps we would have crucified them for such a disrespectfully sloppy display. But because it’s the beloved Chrissy Teigan, we honestly can’t blame her.

Meryl Streep made multiple headlines during the event from her public spat with Karl Lagerfeld over her Oscars dress, then tripping in that dress on the red carpet and her iconic reaction to the announcement of not-‘La La Land’ but really-‘Moonlight’.
The highlight of the night, for us, however, was when Seth Rogen and Michael J. Fox took the stage to present the Oscar for Achievement In Film Editing.
They turned up in the DeLorean car from the ‘Back To The Future’ trilogy. to top it all off, Rogen wore a pair of Nike Air Mags famously worn by Fox’s character Marty McFly in Back To The Future Part II.

We could probably keep writing about all the cringe-worthy moments and all the moments that made you fist pump from your living room, but it is important to highlight some of the important moments of the 89th Academy Awards.
This year’s Oscars marked the first time the telecast featured more than three black winners including Mahershala Ali (Best Supporting Actor, ‘Moonlight’) and Viola Davis (Best Supporting Actress, ‘Fences’). The last time two black performers won top acting awards was 15 years ago when Halle Berry and Denzel Washington made the record books for their Oscar wins.
So, now that you’ve seen all that there is to see from the 2017 Oscars, that’s a wrap! Until next year.
