Every year we expect the Oscars to have a moment. A moment that will be highly talked about for days and years to come. That moment came on Sunday, Feb. 26, during the 89th Oscars thanks to Warren Beatty, Faye Dunaway, and a little red envelope.

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of “Bonnie and Clyde,” Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway presented the biggest award of the night, Best Picture. Upon opening up the “winning envelope,” Beatty was all types of confused and looked inside the envelope several times. It appeared that he couldn’t believe the winner and was looking for another slip. Dunaway eventually read “La La Land” as the winner. The cast took the stage and made speeches, then a Steve Harvey moment happened. “Moonlight” actually won, “it was on the card.”

The “Moonlight” cast then took the stage as the “La La Land” cast was exited smooth off. So what really happened? Beatty was given the wrong card. His confused face was that he saw Emma Stone’s name, who won that night, on the card with “La La Land.” I guess he just assumed the movie won. I don’t know, but I do know that card hander should just move to Alaska. You had ONE job. SMH.

Watch the horror of the Oscars moment that will live on in history forever in the clip below. Share your thoughts in the comments.
