Big Snafu At Oscars--Wrong Picture Announced

It was a smooth night at the Academy Awards, host Jimmy Kimmel seemed comfortable as the host of the event in spite of offending some Trump supported for what seemed to be light hearted jokes about the president and some other folks for joking about an African American actor's name. To top it off, to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the making of Bonnie And Clyde, the two starts of the movie, Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty (pictured) were on stage to announce the best picture. 
But in the biggest mess up in Oscar history, La La Land was announced by Dunaway, but after the large contingent had started it's speeches it was announced that the winner was Moonlight. The world was stunned and both facebook and twitter lit up like a Christmas tree.  The cause of the error, it was later announced was because the pair had been given the wrong envelope.
