Warren Beatty mistakenly announced La La Land as the winner of Best Picture. But don’t blame the 79-year-old actor.
As it turned out, it wasn’t his fault; he was in fact reading the results from a wrong envelope that was meant for the ‘Actress in a leading role’.
Twitterers were super quick in Photoshopping the images to create their own versions of who they think the real winners should be.
But it’s not just the Oscars they’re talking about; some wished that Hillary Clinton had won the latest US presidential election.

Following the wrong announcement at the Oscars, a photo of Meryl Streep quickly surfaced on Twitter.
The Academy Award winning actress was spotted with a shocked and confused expression on her face.
We feel you, Meryl. We feel you.

Well, it clearly wasn’t Warren Beatty’s fault because he wasn’t even holding the right envelope during the announcement.
So chances are, he could have been handed the wrong envelope by a staff but we still can’t believe this major cock up.
The Twitter world began guessing who the culprit was. Could it be Matt Damon who was constantly roasted by host Jimmy Kimmel throughout the night? Hmm…we’ll never know.

Earlier at the ceremony, host Jimmy Kimmel ushered in a group of unsuspecting tourists into the auditorium in the Dolby Theatre where the Academy Awards was at.
One of the sightseers Vicky (pictured), was caught off guard and she fangirled over Hollywood heartthrob Ryan Gosling.
Twitter user Wade Evans used a screenshot of Gosling whispering into Vicky’s ears and captioned it with “I switched the ‘Best Picture’ envelopes.” Hmm…
Congratulations to the entire crew of Moonlight!
Special mention goes to House of Cards actor Mahershala Ali who won the Best supporting actor for his role in Moonlight.

In case anybody needs a confirmation, yes, the real winner for Best Picture is Moonlight indeed.

After learning that La La Land didn’t bag the Best Picture award, leading actor Ryan Gosling looked slightly disappointed (which is totally understandable).
Twitter users took the opportunity to poke fun by superimposing Gosling’s face on a screenshot of a Moonlight scene with Mahershala Ali holding on to him. Talk about onscreen bromance!

For all the thrill and excitement that we’ve been through for the Oscars night, surely we deserve a day off.
We’ll need it to calm our nerves down before heading back to the office, right?
