There was a big mix up at the end of the Oscars Awards. Everyone thought that La La Land was going to sweep the 89th Academy Awards. La La Land did take the major awards, well at least for a minute. At first, La La Land was presented as the winner of the best picture award. The celebration began on stage, but was quickly ended when one of the La La Land winners pointed out that Moonlight had won the award.
