In case you missed it (and if you did, how?), the wrong Best Picture winner was announced at the
2017 Academy Awards.
What happened was — Warren Beatty was handed the Actress in a Leading Role envelope, instead of the Best Picture envelope.
When Warren noticed an issue with the card, he paused (most people assumed it was for dramatic effect) and handed it over to his “Bonnie and Clyde” co-star Faye Dunaway, who simply went with it read off the movie title she saw — “La La Land.”
After realizing the mistake, Warren made a second announcement saying, “I opened the envelope and it said, ‘Emma Stone, ‘La La Land.” That’s why I took such a long look at Faye and at you, I wasn’t trying to be funny.”
Long and short of it — Warren Beatty is innocent.
Anywho, the mix-up triggered an onslaught of reactions from fans, viewers and, of course, the stars who were in attendance.
Here are some of the best reactions.
