What a mix-up!
The Oscars mistakenly announced ‘La La Land’ as the winner of this year’s Best Picture in a huge mix-up that resulted in ‘Moonlight’ being confirmed as the actual winner.
The confusion reportedly came from Warren Beaty and Faye Dunaway, who appeared to be given the wrong envelope, containing the winner of the previous category (Emma Stone, La La Land, Best Actress.)

Meanwhile, John Legend also made headlines for his stunning performance of a song from ‘La La Land’.
The singer performed ‘City Of Stars’ while people danced around him on the stage, if front of an amazing panoramic view of a city landscape at night.
