Starting off as a predicable awards show, the Oscars dramatically turned awkward Sunday night when the producers of ‘La La Land’ were compelled to give the prize for Best Picture to its rightful recipient, ‘Moonlight,’ on live television.

Apparently, presenters Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty were given the wrong envelope. Jordan Horowitz, ‘La La Land’ producer, announced that there had been a mistake and gave the award to ‘Moonlight’ director Barry Jenkins.

Hillary Busis, Hollywood editor of Vanity Fair, explained the snafu to Marty and the pending investigation.
