So… can we talk about the Oscars? Last night was the 89th Annual Oscars. A night where the richest and most talented people in Hollywood gather in a room to congratulate one another for being so rich and talented! Jimmy Kimmel had his work cut out for him as he took on the hosting duties, but honestly, he was the highlight of the night! His ripping on Matt Damon was a stand out, along with his opening monologue where he made fun of Mel Gibson, Tweeted Trump & Even poked fun at Meryl Streep.
But that wasn’t the BIG moment from the evening BY FAR! NOPE! That honor went to the ginormous cluster that was “Best Picture.”
IT started off like any other winner announcement: Warren Beatty & Faye Dunaway were ready to announce the big winner… there was only one problem.. someone put the wrong winner card in the envelope.
The winner was SUPPOSED to be “Moonlight”, but the card read “La La Land.” It wasn’t until the entire cast had made their way up and started congratulating one another that the Producer came out to clear things up.
It wasn’t all bad though! Everyone was incredibly humble and forgiving, LA LA Land took it like champs and the Cast/Crew of Moonlight go to have their moment; be it was an awkward one.
If we managed to get anything other than pure entertainment out of the LIVE TV mess up it’s the plethora of memes that hit the interwebs last night and this morning, and the priceless look on Ryan Goslings face as he tried to hold back laughter once everyone started realizing what was happening.
YOU’RE the real winner, Ryan!
