A goof up La La Land mistakenly announced Best Picture instead of Moonlight

Coming-of-age drama Moonlight won the best picture Oscar defeating strong favorite La La Land after a shocking mix-up in the announcement of the top award.

La La Land which won six trophies including best director and actress, was incorrectly declared the winner by Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway.

However, midway through their victory speech, the producers of the musical realized the error and John Horowitz announced that the award actually belonged to Moonlight.     

Many thought he was just making a statement but then he cleared that he was not joking and showed the audience the card which read Moonlight.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, a flustered Beatty later clarified.

Well I don't know what happened. I blame myself for this, host Jimmy Kimmel joked after the moment.
