Price Waterhouse Coopers Screw Up Oscar Ending or Did They....

In a major gaff, Price Waterhouse Coopers botched the last award given in thy goodnight...the Oscar for Best Picture. Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway were the presenters for the Oscar and for most, the golden statute was set for La La Land, the favorite. Beatty opened the envelope, look confused and disoriented and even showed the card to Dunaway. Dunaway wavered slightly, but announced La La Land had won the Oscar, like most predicted. Everyone associated with the film arrived on stage, snatched the Oscar, and began with acceptance speeches. A stage director with a headset on rushed over to Beatty and handed him a second, red envelope. In the card was the real winner, "Moonlight" with Adele Romanski, Dede Gardner, Jeremy Kleiner Producers boldly on the card! La La Land Producer Jordan Horowitz is informed of the major gaff and informs the stunned audience that Moonlight actually won the Oscar for Best Picture. An obviously pissed Horowitz snatches the card from Beatty fumbling hands and presents it to the crowd, corroborating the mistake. Kudos for Horowitz for taking charge and in a modest gesture handed the Oscar over to the Producers of Moonlight. 

Are Beatty and Dunaway cupable in this colossal mistake? Of course they are, just like PwC. Two veteran, albeit brain dead, actors can't adlib without direction or cue cards? Beatty opens the envelope, realizes the error, shows it to Dunaway, and says NOTHING! On top of that, after seeing Emma Stone's name for best actress, Dunaway JUST assumes La La Land is the winner. Most are backing Beatty and Dunaway, but folks these are actors, veterans of the screen. Stop the action, ask for help, or call Kimmel over and show him the card, he is the flippen host! I would have ripped the card from Beatty's cold, dead hands too!  

This will go down as the biggest goof in live television and for the Oscars. Long live Steve Harvey!
