On Sunday night, February 26 (February 27 in the Philippines), Beatty and Dunaway of the 1967 classic film Bonnie and Clyde wrongly announced La La Land, starring Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling, as the winner of the 89th Academy Awards Best Picture.

Moments later, La La Land's producer Jordan Horowitz corrected the mistake and graciously gave the real winner, indie film Moonlight, the Oscar trophy.

On Twitter, Pia posted a set of "Tongue Out" emoji with the #Oscars hashtag along with a "prophetic" remark from her interview for a hair product endorsement.

The former Miss Universe titleholder said, "If it can happen to me, it can happen to anybody."

The Miss Universe Organization also poked fun at the Oscars blunder on Twitter and told its producers, "Have your people call our people - we know what to do. #Oscars #MissUniverse."
