The 89th Academy Awards “Envelopegate” in 2017
Remember when Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway announced La La Land as the winner of Best Picture when they actually weren’t? Producers had to come up on stage three minutes after the acceptance speech and interrupt them in order to announce the real winners. Moonlight was the real winner of the year’s best picture.
Beatty was trying to explain how he read the wrong name on the envelope. Afterward, the internet exploded into criticism over the Academy’s font choice.
