Best Picture Incorrectly Announced for "La La Land" Instead of "Moonlight"

The Oscars closed with a bang that topped Steve Harvey’s gaffe in announcing the wrong Miss Universe. Warren Beatty looked at the card, handed it off to Faye Dunaway, who announced the winner for Best Picture as “La La Land.” The cast and producers were on stage and were giving their speeches, when the correction came.
