Most people can remember the moment Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty incorrectly named La La Land as the winner of best picture in the Oscars feb 2017, it was a slightly uncomfortable moment to say the least – the audience looked on with absolute disbelief as did the cast and crew of La La Land, the stage fell into disarray Warren Beatty retook the mic and ad-libbed an excuse/explanation … as with all these things people are less likely to remember the rightful winner… (answers on a postcard)
Apparently death threats followed and some poor back stage people managed to get themselves nominated as official scape goats and were ceremoniously shown the door – ‘Only in America’ as they say!
