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!

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.
