For the 89th Academy Awards, it was certainly a history-making night in more ways than one – it was also most likely the first time that a presenter read out the wrong winner. In what's probably now one of the Oscars' most infamous moments, presenters Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway mistakenly announced La La Land as 'Best Picture' and while the cast was halfway through their acceptance speech, it was revealed that Moonlight was actually the real winner. We know – it was like Miss Universe all over again. While we too are still reeling from the shocking twist, we looked to the Twitterverse where people just always know what to say.
