BREAKING NEWS!

After a (mostly) very entertaining Academy Awards ceremony, tho' running way overtime, Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway, celebrating the anniversary of BONNIE AND CLYDE, came to present the BEST PICTURE AWARD.  Beatty opened the envelope and seemed confused, looking at it for a strangely long time. He later said the card in the envelope said "EMMA STONE / LA LA LAND". He showed it to Faye Dunaway, who simply read out "LA LA LAND."  

While the producers of LA LA LAND were thanking and speeching, there was suddenly a flurry of activity behind them. A moment later, in the middle of his speech, a producer added... but we lost!

The MOONLIGHT team came to the stage and the LA LA LAND producer then graciously handed the statuette to the MOONLIGHT producer and congratulated him.

It would seem that Warren Beatty was simply handed the wrong envelope (for Best Actress, not Best Picture), and then the error was compounded with the inaccurate announcement from the wrong envelope card. 

However, Emma Stone says she was holding her card. Further reports suggest there are duplicate copies of each envelope, and Beatty got the second copy of the wrong envelope... 

Still... it seems strange that every envelope does not say clearly on both the outside and the inside what award it is for -- it actually does specify the award category on the outside, but not on the inside on the card. (So the final summary is ???   This suggests a new hashtag: #OscarsSoWTF)
