    Now that the dust has settled....

    Who was really at fault?

    Best picture presenter Warren Beatty explained backstage after the history-making mistake that briefly awarded "La La Land" the honor instead of rightful winner "Moonlight" onstage. "I looked down at the card and thought, 'This is very strange, because it says best actress.' Maybe there was a misprint. I don't know what happened. And that's all I have to say on the subject." said Warren Beatty.

    Warren Beatty threw Dunaway under the bus. He read the thing, realised it wasn't right then thought... fuck it... she can read it. :emoji_laughing:

    After all these years, still the bad boy treating women like shit.

    It was an utter cock-up though. Truly humiliating.

    A real mess! But, from another forum, "Nobody Died, Get Over It" As the story unfolds, everyone is blaming everyone else. Who cares...

    After seeing that I can't blame the two on stage allthough they could've read the envelope title and probably prevented this from happening.

    I do blame the ones that gave them the envelope as, in my opinion, the last one that holds it before it goes to the ones that will read it should check the title as it clearly said something different.

    It was really bad to see that happen and especially after seeing the doubt on both of their faces before blatantly shouting out the name, wich was obviously wrong. Then seeing some frustrated people running back and forth, wich led to the reveal of Moonlight winning.

    Almost felt like it was done on purpose to take away the magic from Moonlight winning. They deserved it way more than La La Land, but that's just my opinion.

    As veteran actors, isn't dealing with weird shit that comes up supposed to be one of their skills?

    Without a script & a Director, actors cannot think for themselves. Their skills include being able to follow a script with a Director telling them how to feel while following said script. That's what they get the big bucks for...

    The accountant had a job to do and he screwed it up.

    It serves him right whatever ends up being his punishment.

    It's really quite simple - put the phone down and do your damn job!

    Who is really at fault? Dunno but giving Beatty the wrong envelope was a huge blunder, for starters.
