Everyone Is Freaking Out About The "Moonlight" And "La La Land" Mix-Up

"They are going to say La La Land, but Moonlight is actually going to win."

In a twist of events, the Best Picture award at the 2017 Oscars went to Moonlight after initially being presented to La La Land by accident.

It was a chaotic moment, to say the least.

Video of the whole #BestPicture disaster, including Warren Beatty trying to tell people what happened.

But ultimately, the Moonlight team walked away with their Oscar. Barry Jenkins, the film's director, tweeted this after the show:

And everyone is completely freaking out.

A lot of people are tweeting about how crazy the whole situation was.

They are going to say La La Land, but Moonlight is actually going to win. #Oscars

"SEE! IF IT'S WRONG, THEY CORRECT IT!" - Marisa Tomei right now

Academy: And the Best Picture goes to La La God:

Because seriously, just...wow.

Some poked fun at La La Land.

In true form, La La Land only won Best Picture in a fantasy moment shared between former lovers imagining wistfully what might have been.

Leapt, without looking And tumbled into the speech

Others referenced the 2015 Miss Universe Pageant.

This seems appropriate #Oscars #BestPicture

This is the Oscar's moment we all deserved #Oscars

And the Miss Universe Pageant tweeted about the incident, too.

Have your people call our people - we know what to do. #Oscars #MissUniverse

Beyoncé's Lemonade was also brought into the conversation.

As was Spice World.

What a night.
