Academy officially apologizes for the Best Picture announcement goof up at Oscars 2017

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has issued an apology for the best picture mix-up at the 89th Oscars ceremony.
In a statement, the Academy said it deeply regretted the error made at the prestigious awards ceremony while giving away the best picture trophy.
Presenters Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway received the wrong envelope and mistakenly announced La La Land as the winner, only for Moonlight to be revealed as the real winner.
“We deeply regret the mistakes that were made during the presentation of the Best Picture category during last night’s Oscar ceremony. We apologize to the entire cast and crew of La La Land and Moonlight whose experience was profoundly altered by this error,” the statement read.
