Barry Jenkins and Tarell Alvin McCraney poses backstage with the Oscar® for Adapted screenplay, for work on “Moonlight

“This is not a joke. Moonlight has won Best Picture. “Moonlight,” Best Picture [He holds up the card announcing the winner]”

After the “Cinderella, little-movie-that-could, made for only $1.5M with zero stars,”  won Best Picture at the 89th Oscars, Moonlight easily became our first pick of one of the many highlights from Sunday’s show.

Back in the pressroom director/producer Barry Jenkins said about the mixup, “No explanation. Things just happen, you know? But I will say I saw two cards. And so things just happen, you know? I did ‑‑ but ‑‑ and because ‑‑ I wanted to see the card to see the card. And Warren refused to show the card to anybody before he showed it to me. And so he did.

Oscars 2017 mishap: It isn't La La Land, Moonlight is the 'Best Film'

Looks like, with this goof up, Oscar 2017 will be in everyone's mind for years now! It was going on smooth and well, until the bizarre incidents took place at the end of the gala night when ‘La La Land’, which won six trophies including best director and actress, was incorrectly declared as the best picture winner by Beatty and Faye Dunaway at the ceremony. However, midway through their victory speech, the producers of the musical film, realised the error and John Horowitz announced that the award actually belonged to ‘Moonlight’. Many thought that 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, »

After the stars and cast of La La Land took the stage to accept the 2017 Academy Award for Best Picture on Sunday, it was revealed that there was a mistake – instead Moonlight was the winner.

La La Land producer Fred Berger was in the middle of delivering his acceptance speech when staff from PricewaterhouseCoopers entered the stage. Suddenly, he remarked, “We lost by the way but you know.”

Then producer Jordan Horowitz  stepped back up to the microphone, stating, “There’s been a mistake. Moonlight won.”

“It’s not a joke,” he said. “This is not a joke, come up here. »

Mary Tyler Moore: America's Sweetheart Goes All the Way

25 January 2017 12:41 PM, PST | | See recent Rolling Stone news »

This story originally appeared as the cover story in Issue 330, November 13th, 1980.

It's eight o'clock and everyone's here... well, almost everyone. There's Carl Reiner, and there's Gavin MacLeod, and there's Betty White and Allen Ludden. They're all here, in this awkward white screening room up four flights of stairs and down a winding hallway deep in the bowels of Paramount Studios. It's a hybrid crowd – TV people and movie people, performers and people from behind the scenes, chorus girls and choreographers, even a few who are just regular people with »
