Hollywood was feeling good. The Academy Awards show featured continual Trump-bashing and the “Oscars So White” controversy was put to rest, with black people well-represented in all categories and winning lots of awards.
But at the grand finale, the announcement of the climactic “Best Picture” award, presenters Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway announced that the winner was La La Land. But they had been given the wrong envelope! The La La Land producers were giving their speeches, until they were interrupted with the news that it was all a mistake. Moonlight, the coming of age film about a young gay black man, was really the winner! Pandemonium!
