Emma Stone Talks About the Best Picture Mistake 2017 Oscars

Emma Stone Addressed the Best Picture Kerfuffle Backstage at the Oscars

"Did you guys see that?" That was the first thing Emma Stone said when she walked into the press room backstage at Sunday night's Oscars. Stone, of course, was supposed to be answering questions about her best actress win, but when La La Land was mistakenly announced as the best picture winner instead of Moonlight, she naturally felt compelled to address the controversy. "I f*cking love Moonlight," she said as an aside. "God, I love Moonlight so much; I'm so excited for Moonlight. Of course, it was amazing to hear La La Land; we're so excited for Moonlight — it's one of the best movies ever. . . . I also was holding my best actress in a leading role card that entire time. So whatever story — I don't mean to start stuff — but whatever story that was, I had that card. I'm not sure what happened." The kerfuffle will go down as one of the craziest moments in Oscars history.

In the days following the incident, new details emerged that shed light on what happened. Of course, we can watch the video and scour the pictures over and over in an attempt to find answers. But most of the important information came in the form of an official apology from the accounting firm that partners with the Oscars every year and tabulates the votes, PricewaterhouseCoopers. The statement describes how a duplicate best actress envelope was mistakenly handed to Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty by one of the firm's accountants. So, this explains why Emma was able to hold on to her winning card the whole time. But hey, we're just glad to know the La La Land actress has our backs and was willing to expose any and all conspiracies. Thanks, girl.
