'Moonlight' wins ideal picture just after 'La La Land' mistakenly announced

"Moonlight" just won best picture at the 2017 Oscars following "La La Land" was mistakenly announced as the winner.

The presenters read "La La Land" appropriate after Emma Stone won most effective actress for her part in the modern-day musical.

"I wasn't attempting to be funny," presenter Warren Beatty later added just after the genuine winner was revealed.

Soon after the cast took the stage, a producer for "La La Land" corrected factors and mentioned, "[Actually] 'Moonlight' is the winner ... this is not a joke."

Host Jimmy Kimmel joked and said, "I blame Steve Harvey," alluding to his gaff announcing the incorrect Miss Universe winner years back.

"Moonlight" director and writer Barry Jenkins, the cast and crew then dashed on stage to accept the win.

"I have to say and it is true, it's not fake," Jenkins stated. "I've been on the road with these guys for so long."

But in his excitement, he made sure to give the film that was wrongfully announced its due.

"I like 'La La Land,'" he stated. "Thank you to the academy, it is so humbling to be standing up there. ... There was a time that I thought this movie was not possible mainly because I couldn't bring it to fruition. ... Everybody behind me on this stage said, 'No, that’s not acceptable so I just wanna thank absolutely everyone behind me.'"
