Wow, our jaws are still on the floor following that very embarrassing Oscars mix-up for Best Picture!
After La La Land was mistakenly called instead of Moonlight for winning the biggest award of the night, the casts from both films have taken a moment to react to the unprecedented snafu.
The newly minted Best Supporting Actor winner Mahershala Ali says that he wasn't surprised at all when Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone's film received the accolade:
"La La Land has done so well and it's resonated with so many people, especially in this time when people need a sense of buoyancy in their life. That film has really impacted people in a very different way than Moonlight, so when their name was read, I wasn't surprised — I was really happy for them. It's a group of really extraordinary people."

He went on:
"When I did see security or people coming out on stage and their moment was being disrupted in some way, I got really worried. And then when they said Moonlight wins, it just threw me a bit. It threw me more than a bit! I just didn't want to go up there and take something from somebody. It's very hard to feel joy in a moment like that, but I feel very fortunate for all of us to have walked away with the Best Picture award. It's pretty remarkable."
Ugh, we hate this amazing cast and crew didn't get their big moment!
Moonlight director Barry Jenkins added he doesn't have any hard feelings about what went down:
