Funny tweeps: La La Land wins Best Picture! Oops, it's Moonlight

Oscar's 2017 ended awkwardly with Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway announcing that La La Land won the best picture award when Moonlight was the actual winner.

The La La Land team were on stage to accept the award when they realised that they were not winners. They then awkwardly asked Moonlight actors to take their award.

Twitter didn't waste any time to capture the Oscar blunder.
