Al Pacino slip up at the Oscars labeled biggest mistake since 'La La Land' mixup

We all know that the Oscars wouldn’t be complete without a slip-up or two on stage. And this year was no exception. The legendary actor Al Pacino made a premature announcement for the Academy Award for Best Picture, leaving everyone in shock. Some even consider it the biggest mistake since the infamous La La Land/Moonlight mix-up of 2016.

Best Picture is undeniably one of the most prestigious awards of the night. So when Al Pacino skipped over the nominees and announced Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer as the winner, the audience couldn’t believe their ears. This was not how it was supposed to go.

In the standard procedure of presenting awards, the presenter reads the nominations first, reminding everyone who’s in the running and giving each nominee their rightful recognition. But Al Pacino jumped straight to the winner without acknowledging the other deserving films. It was a major blunder that sparked a lot of conversation both online and offline.

While some were quick to joke about the mishap, others couldn’t help but reminisce about the La La Land/Moonlight fiasco from 2016. Back then, the Best Picture award was mistakenly announced as going to La La Land instead of Moonlight. It was a moment of confusion that will forever be etched in Oscars history.

But let’s get back to this year’s Oscars. If you tuned in, what was your favorite moment? Share it with us!
