One year ago today, a single envelope changed the course of Oscars history. At the 2017 Academy Awards, Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway mistakenly announced that La La Land had won best picture—which was not exactly a surprising outcome. The film’s producers swarmed the stage and, one by one, started delivering excited acceptance speeches. Meanwhile, worried whispers began percolating backstage after PricewaterhouseCoopers accountants and Oscars producers realized that the correct winner was actually Moonlight, Barry Jenkins’s tender three-tier story about a boy in Miami discovering his sexuality. La La Land producer Jordan Horowitz quickly stepped to the microphone, announced there had been a mistake, and then grabbed the correct envelope and held it up for all to see. The night descended into chaos, quickly calcifying one of the craziest moments in Oscars history.
