At the 2017 Academy Awards, presenters
Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway erroneously
announced that the winner for Best Picture was
"La La Land" when in fact it was "Moonlight."
It was the biggest mistake in Oscar history. The
next morning, news stations and social media
were all talking about it.
It turns out that both presenters were given an envelope for the wrong category before they went on stage. The wrong person was already on stage giving their 'thank you' speech when Academy Awards producers rushed to the stage. They explained there had been a mistake. Producer Jordan Horowitz of "La La Land" even said, "This is not a joke. 'Moonlight' has won best picture."
Many people wondered how it happened. The accounting firm PwC that has counted Oscar votes for over 80 years said Dunaway and Beatty were given the envelope containing the winner of the best actress award.
二○一七年奧斯卡頒獎典禮上，頒獎人華倫． 比提和費．唐娜薇報錯最佳影片得主，宣布得獎 者是《樂來越愛你》，而實際上應該是《月光下 的藍色男孩》獲獎。這是奧斯卡史上最大的失誤 。隔天上午，各大新聞媒體與社群網站都在議 論此事。
調查發現，這兩名頒獎人在上臺前拿到的是 另一個獎項的得獎名單信封。當不是真正的得 主在致謝詞時，奧斯卡典禮製作人才衝上臺， 解釋名單出錯了。《樂來越愛你》製作人霍洛 維茲還更正說：「這不是開玩笑，《月光下的 藍色男孩》贏得最佳影片。」
很多人納悶這樣的錯誤是怎麼發生的。負責 為奧斯卡計票已有八十多年的會計公司資誠表 示，兩名頒獎人上臺前拿到的是最佳女主角獎 得獎人的信封。
