'Moonlight' wins best picture Oscar after 'La La Land' mistakenly announced as winner

There was an uproar at the Oscars that aired this morning when the winner for best picture was mistakenly announced.

The award was being presented by actors Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway who mistakenly announced that front runner "La La Land" had won when the award was supposed to go to "Moonlight".

Beatty said that he had been given the wrong envelope to open.

The producers of "La La Land" had gone up to the stage to accept the award and Jordan Horowitz was the one to proclaim that there was a mistake and that "Moonlight" had actually won Best Picture.

“This is not a joke, Moonlight has won Best Picture,” he said.

This then resulted in an awkward swap onstage between the two movies' teams.

Everyone was shocked for a moment and likened the moment to when Steve Harvey mistakenly announced the winner of Miss Universe 2015.
