Announcing The Wrong Winner
The official accountant of the Oscars, Pricewaterhousecoopers, gave her the wrong envelope.
“We sincerely apologize to 'Moonlight,' 'La La Land,' Warren Beatty, Faye Dunaway, and Oscar viewers for the error that was made during the award announcement for Best Picture,” the firm said in a statement.
“The presenters had mistakenly been given the wrong category envelope and when discovered, was immediately corrected. We are currently investigating how this could have happened, and deeply regret that this occurred.”

"I knew I would screw this up," he joked.
Later backstage, Stone said she still had the card from which her best actress win had been read, so it couldn't have been the one that they read from onstage.
