Emma Stone is shattered. Yes, the Best Picture goes to Moonlight. No, it indeed was not a joke.

Warren Beatty explains why the mistake happened. He said he had an envelope saying Emma Stone, La La Land.

He added that he was surprised and turned to his co-presenter Faye Dunaway before looking quizzically at the audiences.

Horowitz, being a real sport that he is, handed over the award to the real winner of the night: Moonlight writer/director Barry Jenkins.

He remains very sporting about it and offers Barry a warm hug.
