LOS ANGELES (Top40 Charts) The winners of the 89th Academy Awards are being announced live from Hollywood. La La Land was announced as the best film winner at the 2017 Oscars on Sunday night - but then had to hand the award over to Moonlight after a mistake was noticed in what was the most dramatic moment in the history of the Academy Awards.

In extraordinary scenes, the La La Land team were halfway through their victory speeches, when it was noticed that the wrong film name had been read out by Warren Beatty and that Moonlight was actually the winner. "There's a mistake. Moonlight, you won best picture," Fred Berger, the La La Land producer announced to the gasps of a shocked crowd. He held up the card clearly showing the winner was Moonlight.
The stars and crew of La La Land shuffled off the stage and handed their gold statuettes to a jubilant Moonlight team.
Beatty said he had been given the wrong envelope to open. "I opened the envelope and it said Emma Stone, La La Land," he said, adding he had not done it "to try to be funny".

Emma Stone said backstage: "I was holding my best actress card the whole time so whatever story you heard, I don't know what happened, but I wanted to tell you that."
"When it happened I was just on such a buzzy stage, I was already on another planet. "I think it's a good outcome but a very strange happening for Oscar history."
"Is that the craziest Oscar moment of all time? Cool. We made history tonight. Craziest moment."

Jimmy Kimmel, the host, said: "I knew I would screw this up. I promise to never come back."

Casey Affleck won best actor for Manchester By The Sea while Stone won best actress and Damien Chazelle best director both for La La Land.

Viola Davis and Mahershala Ali won supporting Oscars for Fences and Moonlight respectively.

The awards were handed out in between jokes and attacks on President Donald Trump.
