So, La-La Land, the critics’ favourite, won an Oscar for Best Picture.
In one of the most excruciatingly awkward scenes in modern television history (after the 2017 US inauguration), presenter Faye Dunaway read out the wrong film title.
The mix-up wasn't spotted for ages - La La Land director Damien Chazelle as well as a number of actors even made it to the podium to receive the accolade.
Producer Jordan Horowitz began what was, I’m sure, going to be a beautiful acceptance speech.
And then Horowitz announced:
There’s a mistake. Moonlight, you guys won best picture.
There’s only one other cringe-worthy moment in recent TV history that springs instantly to mind.
Yes, Steve Harvey's blunder during the Miss Universe contest has finally been beaten. Rest easy Harvey, you can finally - blessedly - live it down.
