Recent Oscars have been controversial as 89th Academy Awards presenter Faye Dunaway erroneously announced “La La Land” to be the winner of Best Picture instead of “Moonlight.”
Nostalgically, the incident was labeled as ‘Steve Harvey Moment’ just as when Miss Universe 2015 host Steve Harvey mistakenly announced Miss Colombia to be the winner instead of Miss Philippines.
It was after La La Land star Jordan Horowitz finished giving a heartfelt acceptance speech when it was announced that the correct Best Picture winner is “Moonlight”.
As a result, Oscar winners and many awards attendees stood up in shock while different news organizations like CNN and Associated Press had to retract their previous reports.
On the other hand, “Moonlight” was then applauded and well-received by the audience as the real winner.
