Moonlight Pulled Off A Miracle Win After The Buzzer — But These Were The Biggest Traditional Upsets In Oscars History!

no title

La La Land losing to Moonlight will probably go down as the biggest loss in Oscars history.

Not because Moonlight wasn't neck and neck with the popular musical for Best Picture, but because the cast and crew of La La Land had ALREADY accepted the award on stage thanks to an envelope snafu!

Of course, sometimes the name read off the card isn't a shock because of a mistake but because of honest-to-goodness come-from-behind victories!

Believe it or not, even Denzel Washington and Rocky shocked audiences at their award shows by pulling off wins no one saw coming.

Here's How You're Supposed To Handle The Wrong Winner Being Announced At The Oscars

We'll never forget the historic mistake made at the Oscars with that whole La La Land/Moonlight fiasco.

However, the Best Picture mix-up of 2017 wasn't the first time the wrong winner was announced at the Academy Awards!

The Academy made a similar blunder in 1964 during the Best Music Score category, but presenter Sammy Davis Jr. handled the situation much better than the seasoned Warren Beatty did on Sunday night.

Back then, presenters were handed the winning envelope by an offstage handler right after announcing all the nominees.

That method didn't bode well for Davis, who tore the envelope open to read the winner — John Addison for Tom Jones — before quickly returning to the podium to admit he was given the wrong envelope, quipping:

oscars best picture mixup official statement

Talk about an epic face palm moment!

As we previously reported, there was quite the fiasco at the Oscars when Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway announced La La Land as the Best Picture winner, when really, Moonlight was the victor in that specific category. Whomp, whomp!

Obviously, everyone involved with the highly publicized awards show is eager to figure out what the hell happened. Which explains why PricewaterhouseCoopers, the accounting firm which handles the votes and envelopes for the Oscars, has since issued an investigation into the MAJOR on stage blunder.

Moonlight Wins Best Picture At The 2017 Oscars After La La Land Was Mistakenly Announced As The Winner!

| Filed under: Film FlickersAwardzOscars


'Moonlight' NOT 'La La Land' Wins Best Picture… by videosuploaded5566

Um, can someone call Steve Harvey and see if he had something to do with this?!?!

For the final award of the night, iconic actor Warren Beatty and equally iconic actress Faye Dunaway took the stage at the Oscars and announced La La Land as the winner for Best Picture!

The filmmakers took the stage and started giving their acceptance speeches, except there was one tiny little problem.

LA LA LAND DIDN'T WIN!!

That's right! Warren was apparently given the wrong envelope and Moonlight was eventually named the REAL Best Picture winner!

You can't make this stuff up!

After a TON of confusion, Barry Jenkins and company took the stage as the REAL winners of the night!! Honestly, we're STILL in shock by what happened!

Ch-ch-check out the major screw-up (above)!!

Emma Stone's La La Land Dreams Come True Winning Best Actress At The 2017 Oscars!

| Filed under: Film FlickersAwardzOscarsEmma Stone

We were hoping for at least one upset at this year's Oscars, but there's no denying the talent and charm of Emma Stone!

That's because the 28-year-old just won Best Lead Actress for her role in La La Land!!

Emma was overwhelmed by the honor (and by being next to presenter Leonardo DiCaprio) when she took the stage to collect her award — thanking her parents, friends, and, of course, costar Ryan Gosling.

The actress also gushed over the raw talent in her category, saying it was an honor to stand beside fellow nominees Natalie Portman, Meryl Streep, Isabelle Huppert, and Ruth Negga.

She wrapped up her speech by saying she'd use the award as a reminder for all the learning and growing she still needs to do. We think you're doing alright, Em!

Watch her adorable speech (above)!

Casey Affleck pulled off one of the biggest surprises of the night at the Oscars as he beat out Denzel Washington to win Best Actor for his role in Manchester By The Sea!

It's crazy to think of his fantastic performance being an upset, but the award definitely seemed like Denzel's to lose after he won at the SAG Awards!!

Oh well! At least Casey got dressed up and had a super moving speech! Oh wait…

Ch-ch-check out his acceptance speech (above)!
