Moonlight - Best picture
|Emma Stone - Best actress|
Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty presented "La La Land" as the winner of the best picture award, and the celebration began on stage but was quickly ended when one of the "La La Land" winners pointed out that in fact "Moonlight" had won the award.
Beatty said a moment later that he had opened the envelope and read a card which said "Emma Stone and La La Land." He was confused and paused because of it, he said.
"I wasn't trying to be funny," Beatty explained.
"Moonlight" director Barry Jenkins took to the stage in stunned amazement.
"Very clearly, even in my dreams this could not be true," Jenkins said. "But to hell with dreams, I'm done with it, cause this is true. Oh my goodness."
It was quite the Hollywood ending for Jenkins and his painfully moving coming-of-age drama about a young, gay black man in a rough Miami neighborhood.
