'Moonlight' Wins Best Picture at Mixed-Up Oscars Ceremony
This is What's Trending Today.
"There's a mistake. ‘Moonlight,' you guys won best picture."
And with those words, producer Jordan Horowitz of "La La Land," told the cast and crew of a competing film that it had won the Oscars' biggest award.
Presenters Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway were given the wrong category's envelope before they went on stage.
They may have been given the back-up envelope for the "best actress" award, which earlier was given to Emma Stone of "La La Land."
Beatty was clearly confused about what he saw when he opened the envelope, but Dunaway read the name of the film listed below Stone's name.
The actors and producers from "La La Land" left their seats and filled the stage to accept their Oscar statues.
They gave many speeches before Horowitz interrupted.
"This is not a joke. Moonlight has won best picture," he said.
He took the card from Beatty and held it up for the cameras. "Moonlight. Best Picture," he said as the camera moved closer.
The show's host, comedian and late-night television host Jimmy Kimmel, made the best of the situation. He went up to Beatty, and exclaimed "Warren. What did you do?"
Kimmel also said, "personally, I blame Steve Harvey."
That was in reference to the mistake Harvey made in 2015 at the Miss Universe pageant.
He announced the wrong winner, first saying it was the contestant from Colombia, and then realizing the correct winner was actually from the Philippines.
Once order had been restored, Beatty tried to explain what happened, saying he had been given the wrong envelope.
Barry Jenkins is the writer and director of "Moonlight."
Once he reached the stage, he said "even in my dreams, this cannot be true."
Stone, happy to have won the best actress award, later said "is that the craziest Oscar moment of all time? Cool!"
Many people are wondering how the mistake was made. The accounting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers has been handling Oscar votes for over 80 years without any problems.
The firm apologized to all of the people who were made uncomfortable by the mistake. It promised to investigate what caused the error.
Horowitz is being credited for staying calm and stopping the show to correct the error.
People are calling him "gracious," "a great producer," and "classy."
Even Jenkins said "much respect to that dude."
A story from USA Today detailed the backstage moments of the show. The newspaper said people could be heard shouting "Best show ever!" at the end of the night.
The other major award winners will always remember their victorious night because of the best picture mix-up.
They included: Viola Davis and Mahershala Ali for their supporting roles in "Fences" and "Moonlight;" "Manchester by the Sea," for best original screenplay and "Moonlight" for best adapted screenplay; Casey Affleck for best actor and Damien Chazelle for best director. "The Salesman," a film from Iran, won the award for best foreign film.
Director Asghar Farhadi did not attend the ceremony. He wrote a letter that said he chose not to attend in protest of President Donald Trump's attempts to ban immigrants to the United States from a number of majority Muslim countries, including Iran.
And that's What's Trending Today.

《爱乐之城》制片人乔丹·霍洛维茨（Jordan Horowitz）的几句话告知《月光男孩》全体主创，他们获得了奥斯卡最佳影片奖 。
演员沃伦·比蒂（Warren Beatty）与费·唐纳薇（Faye Dunaway）在上台前拿到了错的信封 。
他们拿到的是最佳女演员奖的备用信封，此奖项已经颁发给《爱乐之城》的主演艾玛·斯通（Emma Stone） 。
当比蒂打开信封时，明显对内容感到困惑 。然而，唐娜薇未经思索便念出斯通名字下方的电影 。
颁奖典礼主持人、喜剧演员兼夜间电视主持人吉米·金梅尔（Jimmy Kimmel）眼疾手快，迅速救场 。他立刻走向比蒂惊呼：“沃伦，你在搞什么东西？”
巴里·詹金斯（Barry Jenkins）是《月光男孩》的编剧和导演 。
很多人好奇这一乌龙事件是如何发生的 。80多年来，普华永道会计师事务所一直负责奥斯卡投票程序并且从未出错 。
包括：最佳配角《藩篱》的维奥拉·戴维斯（Viola Davis）、《月光男孩》的马赫萨拉·阿里（Mahershala Ali）；最佳原创剧本《海边的曼彻斯特》，最佳改编剧本《月光男孩》；最佳演员卡西·阿弗莱克（Casey Affleck）及最佳导演达米恩·查雷泽（Damien Chazelle） 。伊朗影片《推销员》获最佳外语片奖 。
该影片的导演阿斯哈·法哈蒂（Asghar Farhadi）未能出席颁奖典礼 。他曾写信表示，自己之所以不出席颁奖仪式，是为了抗议川普总统下令禁止伊朗在内的一些穆斯林国家的民众入境美国 。
