Just to be clear, Moonlight starring Mahershala Ali and Naomie Harris won the Best Picture award at the 89th Academy Awards.

The Oscars 2017 broke the Internet on Sunday night, February 26 (February 27 in the Philippines), because of veteran Hollywood stars Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway's "Steve Harvey moment."

Beatty and Dunaway of the 1967 classic film Bonnie and Clyde were tapped as present the award for Best Picture at the 89th Academy Awards.

Unfortunately, Beatty wrongly announced La La Land (starring Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling) as the winner of the category instead of Moonlight (starring Mahershala Ali and Naomie Harris).

The veteran Hollywood stars were reportedly given the wrong cue card that had Emma Stone's name written on it.

La La Land's producer Jordan Horowitz immediately corrected the mistake after giving his acceptance speech. He even welcomed the real winners on stage.
