The 89th Academy Awards went out with an embarrassingly loud bang after 'La La Land' was incorrectly announced as Best Picture, before the mistake was corrected mid-acceptance speech and the true winning film, 'Moonlight', was revealed.

A 'La La Land' producer grabbed the winning trophy back from his colleagues and took to the mic saying, "the winner is 'Moonlight', this is not a joke".

He continued: "I'm proud to hand this to my friends at 'Moonlight'."

Announcer Warren Beatty quickly made amends by explaining what had happened upon opening the envelope.

"I opened the envelope and it said Emma Stone, 'La La Land'. That's why I took such a long look at Faye and at you. I wasn't trying to be funny," he explained.
