( Daily Mail ) There was disaster at the Oscars on Sunday night when Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway wrongly announced La La Land as the winner of Best Picture, rather than the triumphant Moonlight.

In a heart-stopping moment, the stars and producers of La La Land were stopped midway through their acceptance speeches and forced to hand their trophies to the stars of Moonlight.

The terrible end to an otherwise triumphant show left the audience gasping in horror as Beatty revealed he had incorrectly read ‘La La Land’ as the winner.

Beatty blamed the epic mishap on being given the wrong envelope, saying he had seen the name Emma Stone from ‘La La Land’ when he opened his envelope.

‘I want to tell you what happened I opened the envelope and it said Emma Stone, La La Land and that is why I took such a long look at Faye and at you. I wasn’t trying to be funny. This is Moonlight for best picture,’ Beatty told the shocked crowd as he explained the blunder




La La Land producer Jordan Horwitz held up the correct envelope with Moonlight written on it as Warren Beatty stood behind him, before he graciously passed his statue to the Moonlight producers
