Mahershala Ali, Viola Davis made history at last night’s Oscars {VIDEO}

'What did you do Warren?' The internet mocks Beatty and Faye Dunaway with a barrage of memes after they wrongly named La La Land best picture

Mahershala Ali, Viola Davis made history at last nights Oscars entertainment 1x1.trans

During last night’s Oscars, Viola Davis and Mahershala Ali stole the show and made history.

Davis won Best Actress in a Supporting Role for her role in Fences, making her the first black actress to take home three major acting awards (she’s previously won both a Tony and Emmy award), and she stole the show with her acceptance speech.
“People ask me all the time, what kind of stories do you want to tell, Viola? And I say, exhume those bodies, exhume those stories, the stories of the people who dreamed,” she said. “I became an artist, and thank god I did, because we are the only profession that celebrates what it means to live a life. So here’s to August Wilson, who exhumed and exalted the ordinary people.”

Mahershala Ali also made history when he won Best Actor in a Supporting Role, making him the first Muslim actor to win an Oscar.

“I want to thank my teachers, my professors,” he said during his acceptance speech. “One thing they consistently told me […] was that it wasn’t about you. It’s not about you, it’s about these characters, you are a servant. You’re in service to these stories and these characters.”

He also gave a shoutout to his wife and his four-day-old daughter: “I want to thank her for being such a soldier through this process, and carrying me through it all.”

In addition to their respective history-making wins, the 89th Annual Academy Awards marked the most African-American actors to win in a single night since 2007.

  • Disaster struck when Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway announced best picture
  • La La Land was wrongly named best picture at Oscars over Moonlight 
  • Twitter ruthlessly criticized awards show with hilarious memes and gifs 
  • Several users were reminded of Steve Harvey's gaffe in 2015 when he announced the wrong winner of the Miss Universe pageant  

Disaster struck at the Oscars after Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway wrongly announced La La Land as the winner of Best Picture, rather than the triumphant Moonlight, and Twitter showed no mercy. 

In a heart-stopping moment the stars and producers of La La Land rushed to the stage to give enthusiastic thank you speeches, before being forced to hand their trophies to the stars of Moonlight.

Social media users immediately took to Twitter to criticize the 89th Academy Awards and announcers with hilarious memes of Steve Harvey, and some even called for Beatty to announce the 'real' 2016 election results.

Beatty blamed the epic mishap on being given the wrong envelope, saying he had seen the name Emma Stone from La La Land when he opened his envelope.

'I want to tell you what happened I opened the envelope and it said Emma Stone, La La Land and that is why I took such a long look at Faye and at you. I wasn't trying to be funny. This is Moonlight for best picture,' Beatty told the shocked crowd as he explained the blunder.

It has since emerged that there are back up envelopes for every category and Beatty was given the Emma Stone back up envelope by mistake.

The moment La La Land realizes Beatty read the wrong winner

Off stage, they realized that they still had two best picture envelopes. The best picture envelope for Moonlight hadn't yet been opened.

Executives from Price Waterhouse who tally the Oscar results immediately realized there was a problem when Dunaway read out the name La La Land. An official tried to get on stage to immediately rectify the mistake.

Just seconds before, confusion was etched across Beatty's face after he opened the envelope. He took a second glance inside the winner's envelope before handing it over to Dunaway who read out La La Land.

Host Jimmy Kimmel came forward to inform the cast that Moonlight had indeed won, showing the inside of the envelope as proof.

La La Land producer Jordan Horwitz immediately called up the producers of Moonlight and graciously passed his statue over.

'I knew I would screw this up,' Kimmel, a first-time host, joked. 'I promise to never come back.'

Moonlight's director Barry Jenkins said: 'Very clearly even in my dreams this cant be true. But to hell with it because this is true. It's true, it's not fake.' 

The fiasco triggered the remembrance of a similar incident that took place in 2015 when comedian and host Steve Harvey announced the wrong winner of Miss Universe.

Harvey announced that Miss Colombia, Ariadna Gutierrez, was the winner of the pageant over actual victor Miss Philippines, Pia Wurtzbach.

The unbelievable mishap came at the end of an otherwise flawless evening.

Actress Viola Davis took home her first ever Oscar as she was crowned Best Supporting Actress for her role in Fences. 

Casey Affleck and Emma Stone took home their first Oscars for Manchester by the Sea and La La Land respectively.  

The musical had already won four other awards at the event held at the Dolby Theater, and nearly clinched a fifth, until it was revealed Moonlight was the true winner.
