‘Moonlight’ Eventually Wins Best Picture After Incorrect Announcement

‘Moonlight’ eventually wins the Academy Award for best picture after an incorrect announcement gave the award initially to ‘La La Land’. Actor Warren Beatty announced La La Land as the winners, however while the cast were in the middle of speeches, the mistake was realized and Beatty clarified his blunder and announced the real winners. The gaffe seems more reminiscent of a beauty pageant than the academy awards, however PricewaterhouseCoopers, responsible for overseeing the ballots, apologized for the mistake.
