I was rooting for Hidden Fences. I heard good things about it ;)

 

Thank God, I can go to bed!

Okay, honestly, I keep making that same mistake because I kept thinking of it in terms of something like the glass ceiling.

I wish they had an ensemble award, or a casting director award. I'd be hard put to give it between Hidden Figures or Moonlight for either.

 

And this is why they should give larger print envelopes to those who can't see well. How horrible!

From what I read, Emma Stone campaigned the heck out this awards season, and Isabelle Huppert didn't do enough schmoozing, and Natalie couldn't campaign because of her condition. 

So Emma it is.

Interesting that Huffington Post just published an article on what would happen it the wrong name/movie was announced. (Exactly this, by the way)

How did his envelope have Emma Stone La La Land in it?

Warren knew something was wrong, that's why he didn't read it.

Why wouldn't he say something ?

OMG.  What a bizarre end to a fairly boring night.  I'm glad Warren had a good explanation.  But what a screw up!

The worst Oscars show ever.  Pacing, stupid bits that wasted time, Casey Affleck, and the unforgivable error for the biggest award of the entire night.

If anyone watches Australias Next Top Model, this exact same thing happened in their season finale - the host announced the wrong winner and then awkwardly had to "take back" the title and give it to the runner-up. Was great fun.

This legit looks like a setup to create buzz and get retweets. Why would WB get the lead actress envelope? Why would there have been more than one?

Wow, the La La Land people must be crushed right now. Now they know how that Miss Colombia (I think) felt when Steve Harvey made that fateful mistake. I loved LLL but damn, now I really MUST see Moonlight!

Haha, I wonder how many people stopped watching after La La Land "won" and they'll be waking up tomorrow thinking "what?!?"

I had the remote in my hand...

I was looking down, was the guy who held up the card one of La La Land's producers?  So he happened to be looking at the card and noticed it wasn't his award to keep?

Or was that one of the accountants?

Regardless, and I am not at all blaming Warren, I am so disappointed for the Moonlight crew because they couldn't really enjoy the moment.

They must have printed it twice and had it in the stack with the others in the order in which they would be awarded.

THEY SHOULD HAVE RE-DONE THE ANNOUNCEMENT FOR REAL.  And let the Moonlight crew come up in an excited, dignified way, not, "Stop screwing with us, we know this is not real."  What a disgrace.

But he didn't really seem apologetic which it wasn't his fault he got the wrong envelope but still Him and Faye should have stopped it.

I hope not! That'd be a cruel setup for the La La Land people, unless they were in on it. Man, this was more awkward than a wedding I went to where the bride walked out.

I so happy that Moonlight ended up winning, but feel horrible for the La La Land crew who thought they won but did not. Such a awkward situation. Though Moonlight!
