Soap Notables React To Biggest Oscar Flub In History As Best Picture Goes From 'La La Land' To 'Moonlight'!

It was the biggest Oscar flub in the history of the Academy Awards Sunday night.

After La La Land was declared the winner in the night’s biggest prize, Best Picture, it turns out that wasn’t the case at all, and Moonlight was the rightful recipient.

How it all went down began when Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway were reunited on-stage to present the final award of the evening, because it was the 50th anniversary of the film Bonnie and Clyde in which they starred. When it was time to reveal the winner, Beatty opened the envelope, checked inside the envelope again, looked confused, took a long pause and then glanced over at Dunaway, who clearly thought he was pulling some sort of prank or embellishing the moment.  “You’re impossible!” she said, “Come on!” Beatty handed the envelope to Dunaway, who announced the winner was La La Land!

When the joyous La La Land team arrived on stage, producers Jordan Horowitz and Marc Platt delivered their heartfelt emotional speeches. But behind them stage managers and such were in the mix of the La La Land team. A flurry of activity began behind them.  A stage manager with a headset started talking to several people, as did one of the accountants in charge of tabulating Oscar ballots.

Next, Horowitz stepped to the mic and said, “Guys, guys, I’m sorry. No. There’s a mistake,” he said. “‘Moonlight,’ you guys won best picture.”  “This is not a joke.”  Platt interjected. “I’m afraid they read the wrong thing.”  Horowitz then held up the card that proved it: “‘Moonlight’ … Best Picture.”

Beatty then decided to step up to the mic himself and explain the snafu: “I want to tell you what happened. I opened the envelope and it said, Emma Stone, ‘La La Land.’” (Stone had just won best actress moments before.)  “That’s why I took such a long look at Faye, and at you. I wasn’t trying to be funny. ” Beatty said to the audience.  “This is ‘Moonlight,’ the best picture,” Beatty said, turning the correct card around.  E! also reported that Warren Beatty was handed the wrong envelope and showed a close-up shot of it.

Moonlight director, Barry Jenkins took to the stage in the confusion and said on the mic: “Very clearly, even in my dreams this could not be true. But to hell with dreams! I’m done with it, because this is true. Oh, my goodness.”

Following the snafu, the accounting firm of PriceWaterhouseCoopers put out this statement: “The presenters had mistakenly been given the wrong category envelope and when discovered, was immediately corrected,” the statement continued. “We are currently investigating how this could have happened, and deeply regret that this occurred. We appreciate the grace with which the nominees, the academy, ABC and Jimmy Kimmel handled the situation.”

During the moments that all of this drama took place live on the Oscars after over 3 hours and 4o minutes, social media was abuzz! Many notables from the world of daytime drama took a moment to share their shock, happiness, or commentary on the action that they just watched play-out on live TV.  Here is just a sampling below!

Stephen Nichols: So very happy Moonlight won best picture… even after that ridiculous faux pas. #oscars #lovemovies

Mary Beth Evans: I feel bad for these icons .. a mix-up that wasn’t their fault.

Mal Young:  Bonnie & Clyde still causing mayhem

Victoria Rowell: OSCARS debacle stars announce wrong winner for BEST MOVIE – it ROBBED moment/momentum for rightful winner, MOONLIGHT. “A mess”

Catherine Hickland: Hmmm. That was interesting. We placed a bet on that last award in Las Vegas. We were 5 to 1. They announced LaLa Land won. Which means we lost the bet. We left the theater to come to the governors Ball. All of a sudden we find that we won the bet. There are some disappointed people over what happened, but we won, weird ending to the academy awards. Poor Warren Beatty must feel mortified. What was your reaction??

Jean Passanante:  Somebody posted on Twitter: “Does this mean Hillary won?”

Kristen Alderson: WTF just happened!?!?! #Oscars

Ian Buchanan:  I am so glad Faye Dunaway is not coming to my house tonight.  Warren Beatty got distracted when his long-lost sibling waved from the audience. Re-reading ‘Voyage of the Damned’. In horror.

So, what did you think of Beatty and Dunaway’s Oscar flub?  Were you happy to see Moonlight win Best Picture and not La La Land? How could the wrong envelope for Best Picture not end up in Warren Beatty’s hands to begin with?  Who’s comment on social media was your favorite following the debacle? Share your thoughts below!

    I thought it was human…messy, but mostly felt bad for Warren Beatty! I KNOW he could have/should have announced there was a mistake with the cards…but this is what I think happened:

    I think he looked at it…then looked again…but doubted himself. So, instead of announcing the mistake, he intended for Dunaway to look at it, confer ti was wrong…and then they’d say something. Unfortunately he didn’t convey that and she just saw the words La La Land and ran with it. Awkward for all…

      This was, quite frankly, one of the most scripted, staged, contrived tv productions I have ever seen! It was awkward and embarrassing. Considering they just pulled a similar stunt with Steve Harvey a few years back, you would think they could come up with something more original! Watching the La La Land crew acceptsnce speech….there was no joy…no real emotion….it was like he was just talking until the inevitable moment they interrupted him. It was too rehearsed….it was clear there was no real shock from ANYONE in the room. Shock is hard to fake even from the best actors. With this stunt, the Oscars have lost ALL credibility for me. The agendas and the artifice of awards shows have been there for a long time…but at least they could be counted on for some campy fun and a couple hours of entertaining viewing. No more. I will never tune into an Oscsr telecast again. They crossed a line with such blatant fakery.

        Well…lol….duh! Anyone who could watch that and think it was real is just not good at life. This is the BIGGEST award of the night!! That envelope would have been checked and double checked and triple checked for complete accuracy. Never mind that Huffington Post printed a story TWO days before the Oscars with the headline Ever Wonder What Would Happen if the Wrong Movie was Announced as Best Picture? Well…we got our answer. Lmao. What you have to keep in mind…..is that television was NOT created to bring truth to the masses. It was created during a wartime era with the SOLE purpose of deceiving and brainwashing the masses. This is well documented! And nothing has changed! Television is still doing its job at brainwashing and deception. It is just very sad that grown adults continue to view these OBVIOUSLY staged and scripted events. I can understand children not being able to tell the difference….but adults have no excuse other than just being ignorant.

        I echo all of you 1000%. Her continued attempts at scraping every morsel of self-promotion, race-baiting and imagined relevance is pathetic. She has forever sullied whatever #YR legacy she had left, and I for one hope she vanishes from the ether as soon as humanly possible.

        Although I did not watch the Oscars, some of my friends did. The majority agrees that it was an honest mishap….not staged. Who knows?! How old are Beatty and Dunaway?! LOL. ….couldn’t resist.
        Later…..

    There are 2 sets of envelopes (one of each side of stage). Beatty & Dunaway must have entered from the opposite side of stage than DiCaprio (previous presenter) did. The accountant obviously gave the wrong envelope. Regardless…
    1- why didn’t Warren point out mistake & ask for new envelope?
    2- did Faye read the full text before declaring LaLa Land winner?
    3- why did it take 3 minutes!!! for correct winner to be named?
    4- last acceptance speech from LaLa Land producer went on even though he knew they lost by then. Granted he was confused, but, huh?

    • Addison

      February 27, 2017 at 9:31 am

      Steve, I think hindsight is everything. It seems to me that in the flush of the moment and as the audience eagerly awaits the announcement of the winner, one is going to fumble a bit. I am sure both Beatty and Dunaway wish they had handled this with more grace but we all cannot all be as quick as David Niven who famously quipped,”How brave it was of him to show us his shortcomings” after a streaker ran across the stage.

      • Geoffrey-Martin Cyr

        February 27, 2017 at 3:45 pm

        Actually, Addison … the country saw an example of what to do when Adele stopped her performance at this month’s Grammy Awards. (If you see something, SAY SOMETHING!) It would appear Beatty (and perhaps Dunaway) was uncomfortable and knew in their gut something was not right. But like that buffoon Steve Harvey last year, they just trudged-on ahead without the stone that Adele had when she said “No, something is not right, I’m not going to ruin this for George!” and she insisted the error be addressed. Granted, it was a live show … but in the time that three producers had to give speeches, an accountant and/or stage manager could’ve looked at the card and known in a millisecond it was the WRONG card and they could’ve corrected it. No one gets a pass on this one. They (the presenters, the accountants, the stage manager) had ONE job to do and they blew it, ROYALLY!

      • Shay

        February 28, 2017 at 7:19 am

        Or apparently as classy or appropriate to the event as David Niven, either, Addison! I don’t believe this British “officer and a gentleman” WWII-decorated Army vet ever felt the need to commandeer an awards show to air his political views or bash an American president in public…

      • rebecca1

        February 28, 2017 at 7:53 am

        I completely agree with you Addison. I actually felt bad for Beatty. Seems to me, which I posted, that he was confused….yet at the same time not sure of himself. I think, for some reason, he froze. Like, what if I say it’s the wrong card (in front of a world-wide audience) and I’m wrong. So, it looked to me like he handed it to Dunaway to confirm his suspicions…but because he didn’t convey his doubt (LOL, he really did look like a deer in the headlights) she just hastily saw La La Land and read it. Yes, of course, it ‘s obvious what he COULD have/SHOULD have done…but it was an unfortunate comedy of errors.

        In the scope of life, not that important as say, the presidential election and ITS result…

        I thought Kimmel was perfect! Hilarious! He is so smooth, his delivery always so deadpan and yet spot on…had me smiling the whole time. (His Lion King moment with little Sunny Pawar from Lion was adorable.)

        “Bash an American president?” Now THAT’S funny. I only heard truisms…the old “truth is funnier than fiction” facts regarding a naricissist who found his power his entire career by bashing others….

    Betting on the Oscars? Seriously people will you turn everything into betting?

    Anything that has humans involved at some point is going to encounter errors and to act like it’s the end of the world is just ridiculous.

    A mistake was made, was corrected, and an apology made. Stuff happens, move on.

        A mess? I thought it was fantastic…from Timberlakes’ fantastic musical opening, Kimmel a great host whom I love and thought was hilarious…to the fantastic sest design which was pure Hollywood glamour.

        Very entertaining and well done. Loved it!

      • Celia

        February 27, 2017 at 9:51 pm

        I didn’t even bother watching, Phillip. But, I heard it described just as you say. A mess.
        But, of course, anyone who maligns or throws classless jabs at the President has no respect for himself or his country, no matter who “holds court”. The same applies to those who find great satisfaction in wanting him to fail. Respect the office if not the man. And the pot calls me black.
        I am surprised the mix-up wasn’t blamed on the President, as well……everything else is.

      • Brian

        February 27, 2017 at 10:19 pm

        Respect a man that has shown no respect for anyone or anything? A man that has spoken about women the way he has, military veterans, disabled people, Latinos, Muslims, the list goes on, the man that argues with people on Twitter and behaves like a grade school bully. I don’t think so. I don’t care if he’s the President, the King, or who he is, respect is earned not given. I’ll respect him the same way Republicans respected Obama.

      • Celia

        February 28, 2017 at 7:02 am

        @Brian.
        Hi, Brian,
        I hear you, believe me. I did say respect the office, if not the man.
        I would love to move on. I am so tired of everything…everywhere I turn. There’s no escape, it seems. I would just love for some peace and give him a chance. But, the continuing antagonistic behavior, especially from the Hollywood elitists, who have no clue, is getting old and stale.
        I always hope for the best. There is also so much exaggerstion going on, Brian. We all had our say, either agreeing or disagreeing. It is time to stop and hope for the best.
        I was set to vote for Bernie….but, he was run-over by Hillary.

        Amen, jimh!….I have pretty much given up on all forms of entertainment that emanate from these cosseted liberal luvvies….the Oscars were every bit as disgraceful and despicable as I expected them to be, and the fact that they once again posted diminished ratings demonstrates just how out-of-touch these people are with patriotic Americans who don’t care to hear their bloviating blather time and time again. But by all means, let them keep preaching to their leftist choir….they are only alienating an ever-growing portion of the public that has absolutely no use for them, their products or their overinflated opinions of themselves and their precious worldview.

      I haven’t seen either movie, but I have heard several people say that they fell asleep during LaLaLand. I guess the middle of the movie was very slow.

    It was not Warren and Faye’s fault, although Faye did get a little eager. Warren should probably have said, hold on a mo, and turned to producers for help/clarification. Guess Price Waterhouse needs to make some changes to their procedure. Also, they should have cut the mike off when they realized the mistake.

    • Abruzzfan

    I was thrilled to see Faye & Warren together, wow 50 years of their awesome movie, I feel bad for them, but Faye is not worried about it and it was not their fault. They were given the wrong card.

    In the end glad LA LA LAND did not win, and the Moonlight did win, though Mel Gibson’s movie was awesome, Garfield nailed this true story.

    Oh well like they say we all make mistakes and you learn from them and move on!

    It was one of those woulda, shoulda, coulda, moments– but there is a silver lining in this– most of us can’t remember which film won best picture last year or the year before that or the year before that etc…… but NOBODY will forget the year MOONLIGHT won because of this mistake—- and it will also be in history reels about Oscar highlights for all time— so in a way– this film which in the past would not have even been nominated will never be forgotten–

    It’s a shame to see a story about the Oscars turn into an occasion for people to turn this forum into political ugliness. No thank you. I get enough of that every time I turn on the TV, go on Facebook or Twitter, hell when I step into the lunch room at work. Do we have to turn this page into a Fox News or MSNBC comments section? Good lord, give me a break.

    I watch the Oscars every year, I have for as long as I can remember. I usually watch it with a group of friends, and we have fun guessing the winners, talking about what people are wearing, all that fun stuff. I take it for what it is, an entertainment show with some comedy, a little music, celebrating the best in movies. That’s all it is.

    A mistake happened, it’s live TV, things happen. Made a memorable moment for the Oscars, that’s for sure. Spotlight was a great movie, I’m glad they won.

    And btw, contrary to what some people apparently seem to think, Trump is not the first president to be a topic at an awards show. So was Obama, Bush, Clinton, Reagan, and so on. It comes with the territory. It’s not showing disrespect to the president or the office. It’s just comedy. If you can’t have a laugh, then I feel bad for you.

  14. Rose

    Thought I would try to find a little humor in what happened. Anyone can make a mistake, and someone will become accountable for it, but remember income tax season is coming up. Make sure you check your accountant’s results. 🙂

    But I do wonder why some commenters give a pass to particular candidates who had/have no respect for the office of the President or the man in office at the time, in words and documented deeds, when campaigning. And even have problems with some soap characters similar behavior, but cry foul when others hold up a mirror to their leader of choice. Contradictory? Thin skinned?

    What a mess! After bashing Trump all night the Oscars got their karma. The horrified look on Meryl Streep when this happened was all worth it.

    This year’s Oscars also had the lowest ratings in 9 years. People are tired of the rich and entitled celebs preaching their liberal agenda to us.

RATINGS: DAYS Overtakes GH And Takes The Number Three Spot!

Following their triple-crown victory of winning Outstanding Daytime Drama Series, Writing Team in a Drama Series, and Directing Team honors at the 45th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards, Days of our Lives continued their upswing when the recent ratings were released this week.

For the week ending April 30th through May 4th, DAYS moved past General Hospital as the third most-watched soap opera. Considering DAYS has been in the fourth position of all four soaps for the last several years, this is definitely worth noting.. DAYS came in with 2,301,000 average total viewers for the ratings week, while GH had 2, 288,000. In addition, GH tied an all-time low in the womens 18-34 ratings share.

As for The Young and the Restless, they also lost the most viewers for the week with -174,00, while coming in at 4,089,000 total viewers. Even though they remain at number one and are far ahead of the other three soaps, it seems the show, which in the past has hovered around 4.5 million a week, is down. In addition, the ratings reflected that B&B is now tied with Y&R for the number one show in the womens demo 18-34, and Y&R has tied some lows in total households, and the women 18-49 ratings share.

The Bold and the Beautiful remains second of the soaps with 3,227,00 viewers, but is down over 100,000 total viewers from last year at this time. View the entire ratings picture via SON here. (more…)
