The Best Picture award which is one of the biggest honours of the night was mistakenly presented to La La Land when it was actually Moonlight that won in the category.

A statement issued by the company reads in part, “We sincerely apologise to Moonlight, La La Land, Warren Beatty, Faye Dunaway, and Oscar viewers for the error that was made during the award announcement for best picture,”

For the past 83 years, the Academy has entrusted PwC with the integrity of the awards process during the ceremony, and last night we failed the Academy“.

The award presenter, Warren Beatty had been given a wrong envelope and co-presenter, Faye Dunaway announced the Best Actress winner instead of Best Picture.

PwC has promised to investigate the error.
