Most awkward moments at Oscars 2017

The most effective image mix-up may perhaps have been the greatest gaffe Sunday evening -- and possibly in Academy Awards history -- but it was absolutely not the only a single.

Some have been outright errors, other folks merely uncomfortable moments. And then there was that most awkward moment of all -- when Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway announced the wrong best picture winner.

PricewaterhouseCoopers, the accounting firm that tallies the Oscars voting, took duty for that 1, saying in a statement that they gave the presenters the wrong envelope prior to they went on stage.

Just after "La La Land" was announced as the winner, that film's producers have been on stage thanking folks while a commotion seemed to go on behind them. "La La Land" producer Jordan Horowitz ended the apparent confusion by declaring to the audience, "There's a error. 'Moonlight,' you guys won finest image ... This is not a joke."

Immediately after a pause, the people from "Moonlight" scrambled to the stage as the audience gasped in surprise and rose to their feet.

The snafu will certainly be remembered for years to come. Here are some other gaffes from Hollywood's most significant night:

'Hidden Fences'

The "Hidden Fences" flub -- a conflation of the names of two films about African-Americans, "Hidden Figures" and "Fences" -- occurred again, this time on the red carpet with Persons magazine editorial director Jess Cagle. If you recall, "Hidden Fences" made its debut at the Golden Globes, when Jenna Bush Hager mistakenly joined the names of what are two of the year's greatest films. The error was later repeated from the Golden Globes stage by Michael Keaton.

To his credit, Cagle on Sunday swiftly corrected himself. But that didn't cease Twitter from going crazy.

Oscars can't dance

Justin Timberlake's efficiency of "Can't Cease the Feeling" was one of the best openers of the Oscars, but his attempt to get the audience to join in for a single large dance party had mixed final results. The camera seemed to catch a number of awkward moves from Hollywood's elite as they tried to catch that feeling or possibly had a bit also much of it.

When Casey thanked Denzel

After Casey Affleck won for very best actor, he 1st thanked Denzel Washington, who was up for the identical award. "One particular of the first men and women who taught me how to act was Denzel Washington, and I just met him tonight for the first time. Thank you," Affleck mentioned. But as the camera panned to Washington, it wasn't clear that he was impressed.

Jimmy Kimmel's tour bus prank went on also extended

Host Jimmy Kimmel surprised a Hollywood Stars coach tour by bringing them to the Oscars. The prank began out funny, with an engaged couple becoming declared man and wife by her preferred actor, Denzel Washington.

But there have been awkward moments, like when Kimmel seemed to poke exciting at the name of an Asian woman on the tour when praising her husband Patrick's name. "See, that’s a name," he mentioned. Meanwhile, at least one particular person with the tour appeared bored by the whole issue, and by the finish so have been the men and women watching at home.

Kimmel makes fun of Mahershala Ali's name too

Earlier in the show, Kimmel had an exchange with Mahershala Ali about his name ideal after the actor won for greatest supporting actor. Ali had just thanked his wife Amatus Sami-Karim for giving birth to their daughter, Bari Najma Ali, 4 days earlier. Later, Kimmel joked that with a name like Mahershala he will have to have had a difficult time naming his daughter. "You can not name her Amy," Kimmel joked.

Ali seemed to laugh it off, but Twitter had a field day.

@jimmykimmel can not let Mahershala Ali win without generating fun of his name. Jimmy, your name ain't so popular in 3/four of the planet #Oscars

However, Kimmel didn't stop there. He later asked the audience to yell out Ali's name.

Auli'i Cravalho hit mid-functionality

"Moana" star Auli'i Cravalho was making her Oscar-debut efficiency, singing the film's nominated song "How Far I'll Go" when she was whacked in the head by a flag-like prop on stage. The 16-year-old turned what could have been an awkward moment into a show of perseverance. Barely flinching as she continued to belt out the tune, this poised young singer is naturally going areas.
