At the 2017 Academy Awards on Feb.26th, at The Dolby Theater in Hollywood, Warren Beatty, 79, handed the biggest award of the night, The Best Picture winner, off to his costar Faye Dunaway, 76, who read La La Land as the winner when it was in fact Moonlight that had won the Oscar. While Warren did not actually make the flub, he gracefully took the heat and explained to the world how the mistake was made.
