Here are the best reactions to the Oscars' botched Best Picture presentation


A lot of awards were given out at the Oscars last night. But the Best Picture presentation will go down in history, after "La La Land" was mistakenly announced as the award winner. "Moonlight" won the award after a brief confusion. It turns out presenters Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty were given the wrong envelope. But forget history. It's already gone down as a meme.

However bad your Monday is, at least you didn't announce the wrong winner at the Oscars.

Some suspected a conspiracy.

Some got political.

A Darren Criss thread quickly turned prophetic.

Even the stars at the Oscars were caught off guard.

Some observers got political.

Others pointed to PricewaterhouseCoopers, which counts the Academy's votes.

Remember, Dunaway and Beatty are most famous for playing Bonnie and Clyde.

Quick, someone Photoshop some Academy Awards instead of the guns.

Some were already looking forward to the 2018 Oscars.

"La La Land" producer Jordan Horowitz certainly had the night's classiest reaction.

But we're sure Steve Harvey must be giddy. 

He responded early Monday morning.

Even "La La Land" star Ryan Gosling could barely stifle a laugh.
