Sunday night’s 2017 Academy Awards were relatively lackluster … that is, until this major shocking mixup!

La La Land was announced as Best Picture, so of course, the entire crew made their way to the stage to accept the BIGGEST award of the night. But after making a number of warm, uplifting speeches, it was revealed that Moonlight actually won.

Instantly, the look of worry and confusion wiped across the faces of the crowd before the night’s host, Jimmy Kimmel, came out and suggested it was indeed a mix-up.

Presenter, Warren Beatty, who announced La La Land, explained during on stage frenzy that he “opened the envelope and it said Emma Stone La La Land, that’s why I took such a long look at Fay. I wasn’t trying to be funny.”

While the explanation still doesn’t exactly make sense, folks on the social media quickly began poking fun at the biggest twist of the night.

Needless to say, Moonlight walked away with the Best Picture Oscar and they are more than thrilled, despite having the major moment completely taken away from them. “We didn’t do this, you chose us.” director Barry Jenkins said.


Exclusive: ‘The Oath’s Cory Hardrict, Kwame Patterson Recall Being Harassed By Cops



If you want to take an emotional, entertaining and dangerous ride through the corrupt land of law enforcement, then we suggest you tune in for The Oath.  

Delivering a unique perspective on what it means to wear the color blue, the show follows a group of police officers and their lives with badges on and off.

“With being a cop in the workforce, especially being an African American cop, when we step out there, we always want to do the right thing,” Cory Hardrict told HipHollywood. “The crazy thing about this show is we have another life as well outside of the cop world where things aren’t so perfect.”

Cory, who is expecting a baby girl very soon with his wife, Tia Mowry, continued, “When the badge comes off and we have on regular civilian clothes, we get treated like every African American harassed person out here in the world.”

Although this is just a television show, the narrative is not exactly a far cry from reality, a reality Cory Hardrict and Kwame Patterson personally know all too well. “I had one incident where he [the officer] took his blade and went to the back seat cut the back seat and sliced it … but you can’t do anything.”

Patterson added, “I’m from Baltimore, so Baltimore is one of the most corrupt police cities in the United States. So I’ve definitely dealt with police brutality, discrimination … it’s always my word against theirs.”

The new show, produced by 50 Cent, is now streaming on Crackle.
