Most awkward moments at Oscars 2017

The very best image mix-up may possibly have been the most significant gaffe Sunday night -- and possibly in Academy Awards history -- but it was surely not the only a single.

Some were outright errors, other people basically uncomfortable moments. And then there was that most awkward moment of all -- when Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway announced the wrong finest picture winner.

PricewaterhouseCoopers, the accounting firm that tallies the Oscars voting, took responsibility for that one particular, saying in a statement that they gave the presenters the wrong envelope prior to they went on stage.

Immediately after "La La Land" was announced as the winner, that film's producers had been on stage thanking people though a commotion seemed to go on behind them. "La La Land" producer Jordan Horowitz ended the apparent confusion by declaring to the audience, "There is a mistake. 'Moonlight,' you guys won greatest picture ... This is not a joke."

After a pause, the people from "Moonlight" scrambled to the stage as the audience gasped in surprise and rose to their feet.

The snafu will surely be remembered for years to come. Right here are some other gaffes from Hollywood's most significant night:

'Hidden Fences'

The "Hidden Fences" flub -- a conflation of the names of two films about African-Americans, "Hidden Figures" and "Fences" -- happened again, this time on the red carpet with People today magazine editorial director Jess Cagle. If you recall, "Hidden Fences" produced its debut at the Golden Globes, when Jenna Bush Hager mistakenly joined the names of what are two of the year's biggest films. The error was later repeated from the Golden Globes stage by Michael Keaton.

To his credit, Cagle on Sunday immediately corrected himself. But that didn't stop Twitter from going crazy.

Oscars can not dance

Justin Timberlake's overall performance of "Cannot Quit the Feeling" was 1 of the very best openers of the Oscars, but his attempt to get the audience to join in for one significant dance celebration had mixed final results. The camera seemed to catch a number of awkward moves from Hollywood's elite as they tried to catch that feeling or probably had a bit as well a lot of it.

When Casey thanked Denzel

Soon after Casey Affleck won for greatest actor, he initial thanked Denzel Washington, who was up for the very same award. "One of the initial people who taught me how to act was Denzel Washington, and I just met him tonight for the initially time. Thank you," Affleck said. But as the camera panned to Washington, it wasn't clear that he was impressed.

Jimmy Kimmel's tour bus prank went on also lengthy

Host Jimmy Kimmel surprised a Hollywood Stars coach tour by bringing them to the Oscars. The prank started out funny, with an engaged couple becoming declared man and wife by her favored actor, Denzel Washington.

But there had been awkward moments, like when Kimmel seemed to poke enjoyable at the name of an Asian woman on the tour although praising her husband Patrick's name. "See, that’s a name," he mentioned. Meanwhile, at least 1 person with the tour appeared bored by the whole thing, and by the finish so were the people watching at dwelling.

Kimmel tends to make exciting of Mahershala Ali's name as well

Earlier in the show, Kimmel had an exchange with Mahershala Ali about his name proper after the actor won for greatest supporting actor. Ali had just thanked his wife Amatus Sami-Karim for giving birth to their daughter, Bari Najma Ali, 4 days earlier. Later, Kimmel joked that with a name like Mahershala he have to have had a tough time naming his daughter. "You can not name her Amy," Kimmel joked.

Ali seemed to laugh it off, but Twitter had a field day.

@jimmykimmel cannot let Mahershala Ali win without the need of creating entertaining of his name. Jimmy, your name ain't so widespread in three/4 of the planet #Oscars

Unfortunately, Kimmel did not quit there. He later asked the audience to yell out Ali's name.

In Memoriam gets it wrong

The In Memoriam tribute is typically controversial, typically for who it leaves out. But Sunday evening, it included Australian costume designer and 4-time Oscar nominee Janet Patterson, having each her name and profession suitable, but identified her with the wrong photo. The photo was actually of Jan Chapman, an Australian producer who after worked with Patterson.

Chapman was not happy with the academy's key error. "I was devastated by the use of my image in location of my great friend and longtime collaborator Janet Patterson," she wrote in an e mail to Vanity Fair.

Auli'i Cravalho hit mid-functionality

"Moana" star Auli'i Cravalho was producing her Oscar-debut functionality, singing the film's nominated song "How Far I will Go" when she was whacked in the head by a flag-like prop on stage. The 16-year-old turned what could have been an awkward moment into a show of perseverance. Barely flinching as she continued to belt out the tune, this poised young singer is certainly going places.
