 Oh no, not again!  Another award botch as the 89th Annual Best Picture Oscar is mistakenly given to the crew of "La La Land", when in reality, "Moonlight" was the winner.  As presenters Warren Beatty Faye Dunaway announces the winner as "La La Land" and the crew are in the midst of their acceptance, Jordan Horowitz, a producer on "La La Land" interrupts to say Moonlight had won.  Come to find out, Warren Beatty was accidentally given the envelope for Best Actress, which was handed out right before to Emma Stone for her role in “La La Land.” He saw the movie title and passed the envelope to co-presenter Dunaway, who announced “La La Land” as the winner. In all La La Land won 6 awards, Moonlight won 3, including Best Supporting Actor and Best Adapted Screenplay.  The other major acting awards went to Casey Affleck as Best Actor for Manchester by the Sea, Emma Stone as Best Actress for La La Land, and Viola Davis as Best Supporting Actress for Fences. La La land's Damien Chazelle becomes the youngest Best Director winner ever at 32 years old. Manchester by the Sea and Hacksaw Ridge won two awards each.
