Jimmy Kimmel Explains Oscars Messup

Unless you live under a rock under a volcano under the ocean, you have probably heard about the big f**k up at the Oscars, where La La Land was mistakenly called best picture over Moonlight.

Jimmy Kimmel addressed the gaffe on his late night show in his typical Jimmy Kimmel way.

“All of a sudden it turned into one of those Maury Povich paternity test shows.”

Essentially, Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway wrongfully announced La La Land as best picture, and all hell broke loose. But how could that even happen? A lot of people just assumed it was Kimmel playing another prank, which he denied.

“I did not pull a prank. If I had pulled a prank, by the way, I wouldn’t just have the wrong winner’s name in the envelope, there would have been a Bed Bath and Beyond coupon in there.”

So, how did this even happen?

Well, it turns out that a partner from PricewaterhouseCoopers, the firm that figures out the results and handles them, handed the presenters the wrong envelope, leading to an all out panic.

It looks like Warren Beatty, who took a look at the envelope first, even knew it was wrong, and tried to pass it off to Faye Dunaway to struggle with.

Classy, Beatty. Real Classy.
