Midway through their victory speech, the producers of the musical realised the error and John Horowitz announced that the award actually belonged to ‘Moonlight’.

Many thought he was just making a statement but then he cleared that he was not joking and showed the audience the card which read ‘Moonlight’.

"I want to tell you what happened. I opened the envelope and it said Emma Stone, La La Land. That's why I took such a long look at Faye and at you. I wasn't trying to be funny," a flustered Beatty later clarified.
