The 89th Academy Awards gave us one of the most shocking award shows in recent memory. I initially thought the biggest controversy of the night was going to be La La Land winning Oscars at the expense of Moonlight, until it happened.

La La Land was mistakenly read as winner of the coveted Best Picture award, the climax of the show. The mistake was only rectified while the producer of the film was making his speech. The whole thing was a farce.
