Whoopsie Doodles: The Oscars Also Messed Up Their In Memoriam

Having done this thing 89 times already, the Oscars sure did screw up last night, botching both their Best Picture winner and giving Best Costume to this:

They also accidentally put a living person in the In Memoriam, paying tribute to Janet Peterson but using a picture of Peterson's friend Jan Chapman, who is alive.

Internet Gets Broken By A Massive Fail at 89th Academy Awards That Resulted In La La Land Being Mistaken For Oscar Winner

This is some next level, Steve Harvey kind of shit. Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway ended up stealing the show, and igniting pure unadulterated outrage/confusion from people tuned in to the Academy Awards when they read that La La Land won the award, though Moonlight was the actual winner. This is the kind of show-stopping, cringe-inducing FAIL that almost hurts to watch.

I have a confession to make: I haven't seen La La Land

via Mashable

I know, I know, but it just doesn't seem like the most pressing movie right now. In fact, it seems like the type of movie that would seem much more appealing if the world weren't hurtling toward catastrophe. I'm sorry, I just can't deal with another actor/musician follows their dream movie. 

However, I will see anything directed by David Lynch, so if he had directed La La Land I would've been all over that. Then again, he already directed La La Land twice — Mulholland Drive and Inland Empire
