Oops! wrong movie called to podium
Imagine my surprise when the radio alarm clock set to NPR went off this morning - Market Place announcer discussing Moonlight having won the Oscar!
I was rooting for Moonlight over La La Land - when Faye Dunaway called La La Land to receive the Oscar, I flipped over to the local news, they hadn't gotten the update at that time either, so they announced that La La Land had won. It looked like diversity in Hollywood had once again lost out.
But Hooray what a moment it was for everyone! That the producer of La La Land was dignified and showed the audience that in fact the wrong title had been called out.
Wonder whose head is going to roll over this one?
