Oscars 2017 - Here's What Happened With #EnvelopeGate (Video)

We woke up still scratching our heads over what went wrong last night during the Best Picture presentation at the 2017 Academy Awards held at the Dolby Theatre on Sunday (February 26) in Hollywood.

Actors Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway presented the award to La La Land – but it turns out they had the wrong envelope and Moonlight actually won.

When the La La Land cast and crew were informed, producer Jordan Horowitz told the Moonlight folks to come up on stage because they were actually the winners.

It was a bizarre moment and one that had everyone asking – what happened with the envelopes? Did Warren have the wrong one? Was there a mix-up?

The accounting firm, PricewaterhouseCoopers (also known as PwC) who is in charge of tallying the votes and giving out the envelopes, eventually took responsibility.

“The presenters had mistakenly been given the wrong category envelope and when discovered, was immediately corrected,” the company tweeted. “We are currently investigating how this could have happened, and deeply regret that this occurred.

WHAT DID YOU THINK of the Oscars flub?
