>> that's what many people are saying this morning. a good monday morning to you all and we, of course, are going to start with that hollywood moment that no one in hollywood was counting on. so, take a look. here are actors faye dunaway and warren beatty and he seems to be stalling. >> he saw the wong piece of information out there. now, he shows the card to dunaway so the movie cast and crew make their way to the stage and winners of best pictures for 30 seconds. "la la land" didn't actually win as the movie's producers finally pointed out. >> there's a mistake. "moonlight," you guys won best picture. "moonlight" won. this is not a joke. this is not a joke. i'm afraid they read the wrong thing. this is not a joke. "moonlight" has won best picture. "moonlight."
best picture. >> unbelievable. >> wow! so, let's point out moments ago the company behind the balloting and counting and security put out a statement saying -- want to put it up -- the presenters had mistakenly been given the wrong category envelope and when discovered was immediately corrected, we are currently investigating how this could have happened and deeply regret this occurred in the first place. >> needness to say plenty of 'splainin' to do besides that. but we're trying to see what we can get to the bottom to at least at this early hour and check in with dana. >> reporter: the cast of "la la land" handing over their oscars to the cast of "moonlight" in one of the biggest oscar bungles ever. >> "la la land." >> "la la land" first called the winner but within minutes -- >> this is not a joke. "moonlight" has won best picture. "moonlight."
guess picture. >> reporter: an abrupt about-face. "moonlight" ultimately taking the top prize in an awkward upset. until then oscar night had hit all the right notes. ♪ can't stop the feeling >> reporter: musical performances. political jabs. >> i want to say thank you to president trump, i mean, remember last year when it seemed like the oscars were racist. >> reporter: and a surprise visit from some unsuspecting tourists. who is your favorite actor? >> that man right there. >> denzel? >> and it's about that little gold statue. >> mahershala ali. >> reporter: mahershala ali taking home his first oscar for best supporting actor in "moonlight" and the award for best supporting actress going to viola davis for "fences." >> casey affleck, "manchester by the sea." >> reporter: best actor as predicted went to the star of "manchester by the sea." >> i'm really proud to be a part of this community and look out at all of you and just
dumbfounded that i'm included. ♪ city of stars >> reporter: "la la land" won six of its record tying 14 awards for which it was nominated. >> emma stone, "la la land." >> reporter: including best actress who addressed the flap backstage. >> it was an amazing thing to hear "la la land." i think we would have all loved to win best picture but we're so excited for "moonlight." >> reporter: finally the real best picture winner, "moonlight." >> okay, they're gone but it's very humbling to be up here. >> reporter: price waterhouse coopers released a statement apologizing for the mistake saying that the wrong category was given to presenters and they are investigating how it happened but it's safe to say that tonight's award show will go down in oscar history. reporting live from hollywood, danya bacchus, kendis and diane. >> it's definitely worth repeating that statement because they're answering a lot of questions.
what about any other reaction about the mix-up from host jimmy kimmel, i believe? >> reporter: yes, jimmy kimmel just telling the local abc station here in los angeles that he had nothing to do whatsoever with what happened. also saying that he was losing his mind over this, of course, i think we heard him make that joke at the end saying that he blames steve harvey for this happening and then, of course, he's not taking the responsibility for this one. >> steve harvey must be the one person relieved it happened and takes pressure off him. a first, danya, but there were other firsts. more highlights, you could say from this year, right? >> reporter: right, there were plenty of firsts this year. this is actually emma stone's first oscar. mahershala ali became the first muslim to win an oscar. damien chazelle, the director of "la la land" his first oscar and youngest director to ever win an oscar and then there was viola davis, this was her first oscar and plenty of people are talking
about her acceptance speech. it's trending actually on many social media sites because she to a very heart felt speech about why she became an artist and she says it's because this is a profession that celebrates what it means to live life. so, viola davis leaving a lasting impression on everyone with that speech she gave this evening. >> and danya, of course, we remember the sound engineer from "hacksaw ridge" who was nominated 21 times, his first win. >> finally broke the longest losing streak in oscar history. >> yes. >> kevin o'connell, big congratulations to him and by the way, viola davis also won our vote for best dressed of the night. >> looked amazing. bow down. >> danya bacchus, thanks. unprecedented fiasco, i believe, and one of the new york tabloids called it an incredible
blunder. >> so abc's jaythan nathanson was back there and spoke to him. >> audible gasps. i mean that's definitely a way to describe it, it was chaotic, never seen anything like that for sure. will never see anything like that again. we were dumbfounded this would happen at the oscars. the premiere event, the big night in hollywood and that's what happens. what we're understanding is that there's two cards for every winner on either side of the stage there's a card for best actress for emma stone and best actress for emma stone, left and right so she had hers and holding hers. if you look at a frozen screen grab of the card that warren beatty is holding it says best actress. that's the category that he was reading and that faye dunaway were reading. the awards up until the end were kind of predictable until we thought "la la land" win and that's how we thought it was expected but a big shock not
only what happened with the screwup that "moonlight" beat "la la land" in the end. eventually they'll be able to laugh about this. right now damien chazelle, director of "la la land" he won best director, the youngest best director ever to win. he did not come backstage here and talk to us. probably because he knew what he'd be asked about. >> jason nathanson from back many stage. you have to feel for warren beatty and faye dunaway like we have the wrong card and she didn't realize and read it out loud. we'll hear more explanations. the wild ending started countless memes. >> a live picture of the dolby theatre. "gma" will have a full wrap-up and more of this half hour but definitely i would say "la la land," the atlanta falcons of the oscars. just when you think you're there, not so fast. still ahead more from hollywood and the oscars including the red carpet fashion and must see photo bomb.
