Oscars 2017: Celebrities react to 'Moonlight' essentially winning very best picture after mix-up

It was the largest moment of the evening.

When Oscar presenters Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty mistakenly announced "La La Land" as the best picture winner instead of "Moonlight" soon after an apparent envelope mix-up, the shockwaves were felt by way of the area and beyond.

Many took to social media to express their sentiments.

Here's who we spotted reacting to the greatest moment at the 89th Academy Awards, held at the Dolby Theatre on Sunday night:

Remarkable ending. Want that had happened on Election Day.

I figured out what occurred, #Oscars - it was @RyanGosling pic.twitter.com/oo9Te94WEv

You know what the challenge is -- millions of Academy members voted illegally.

I wrote the ending of the academy awards 2017. @jimmykimmel we seriously got them!

IF Any individual FROM THE IN MEMORIUM IS Nonetheless ALIVE PLEASE LET US KNOW

WHY Couldn't THE ELECTION ENDED THIS WAY!!!! #Oscars

I need to have a drink... no... a drank... make it a double. My feelings are all more than the spot #Moonlight #Oscars2017

So sad how the Russians hacked Warren Beatty.

Have your people call our people today - we know what to do. #Oscars #MissUniverse

Can not think the Russians nearly got away with hacking the #Oscars

Congratulations @moonlightmov. Representation matters (But that complete point was so weird and we're in shock also). #Oscars

Most nights, I have a dream in which what just happened at the #Oscars essentially happened on election evening.

Warren Beatty had #alternativefacts. Congrats #Moonlight well deserved!

I'm beginning to wonder if I got nominated for Into The Wild just after all. #Oscars

I am also incredibly sad for the MOONLIGHT crew. I wish that they had the full practical experience of winning most effective pic devoid of the awkwardness of it all.

Gee, I am glad I stayed up! That was a initially!!!!

I am blaming Russia and going to sleep. #Oscars
