LOS ANGELES (AP) —The producers of “La La Land” were nearly done with their acceptance speeches for best picture when “La La Land” producer Jordan Horowitz returned to the microphone and said it was “Moonlight” that had actually won best picture.
Horowitz insisted it was “not a joke” and even held up the card showing that “Moonlight” was the true winner.
Emma Stone’s portrayal of a struggling actress in “La La Land” has won her best actress at Sunday night’s Academy Award show.
Casey Affleck won best actor for his portrayal of a grieving father in “Manchester by the Sea.”
Other Oscar winners are Mahershala Ali as best supporting actor for “Moonlight,” Viola Davis as best supporting actress for “Fences” and “Moonlight” as best picture.
