HOLLYWOOD, California - "Moonlight" won the best picture trophy at the Academy Awards in a historic Oscar upset that followed Warren Beatty at first reading the wrong winner.
Shock and chaos spread through the Dolby Theatre when producers of "La La Land" were stopped in the middle of their acceptance speeches to be informed that Beatty had incorrectly read "La La Land" as the winner. "I wasn't trying to be funny," Beatty explained, saying he had seen the name Emma Stone from "La La Land" when he opened his envelope.
Host Jimmy Kimmel came forward to inform the cast that "Moonlight" had indeed won, showing the inside of the envelope as proof. "I knew I would screw this up," said Kimmel, a first-time host. "I promise to never come back."
Producer Jordan Horwitz then graciously passed his statue to the "Moonlight" producers.
Up until the chaotic end, the telecast had seesawed between jabs at Donald Trump and passionate arguments for inclusivity, with awards going to "La La Land," ''Moonlight" and "Manchester by the Sea."
Here is a list of winners for the 89th annual Academy Awards presented by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences:
