I never watch the Academy Awards shows (or any awards show for that matter) but last night saw an epic bungle at the end where the Best Picture award announcement was wrong, and the error was discovered only after the wrong ‘winners’ had all come on stage and made their acceptance speeches.
In the clip below, you can see the news of the mistake filtering through the people at the back of the stage while the people at the microphone are oblivious to what is going on. Here is a description of how it went down.
It must have been excruciating for the people who thought they had won but I have to say that everyone involved such as Jordan Horowitz, producer of La La Land, behaved with grace. Below is Barry Jenkins of the actual winning film Moonlight talking afterwards.
Here is host Jimmy Kimmel taking some digs at Donald Trump.
