'Moonlight' really is best picture after all: Oscar mix up

It was an "oops" of epic proportions.

The announcers might have been in "La La Land" when they read the wrong name for the "best picture" winner at the Academy Awards Sunday night, but the movie by the same name definitely didn't win.

"This is not a joke," producer Jordan Horowitzfrom "La La Land" said, interrupting the speeches of his colleagues after announcers Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty named the wrong movie in the final award presentation of the evening.

The award was meant for "Moonlight."

Beatty returned the mic after the blunder to explain what happened. He said the envelope he was handed to read said "Emma Stone— 'La La Land.'"

Stone had won "best actress" just minutes earlier.

It's unclear how the mix-up happened, but we're sure the Academy is on it.
