A Tale of Last Night’s Oscar Mixup As Told Through GIF
It’s still hard to believe what we witnessed during last night’s Oscars, but it did indeed happen. While folks are still hilariously reacting to the jaw-dropping sitch and going over all of the deets of how it came to be, we’re making it even simpler for you to understand, telling the tale once more through GIF. Check out the ones that perfectly pinpoint every cringe-worthy moment from the incident, below.
The entire sitch began when Warren Beatty opened the now infamous envelope…
…and, upon inspecting its contents, took another peek inside to see if there wasn’t something he had missed.
He hesitated for a rather prolonged period in a state of confusion and/or doubt, which we initially mistook for humor…
…except he wasn’t laughing. Beatty then showed the card to his co-presenter, Faye Dunaway, who announced that the winner was La La Land, even as Beatty is heard saying, “But it says Emma Stone.”
The La La Land folks then took the stage and began to make their acceptance speeches…
When suddenly, people began to make their way onstage from the shadows of its wings.
La La Land producer Jordan Horowitz figured out what’s going on sooner than most, and announced that Moonlight was the actual winner, while saying, “This isn’t a joke.”
He even grabbed the card from Warren Beatty to show the crowd and cameras the awkward truth.
And there it is, plain as day, for all the world to see: Moonlight.
The Moonlight cast was understandably overwhelmed…
…and began to make their way onstage as Warren Beatty attempted to explain how such a mixup occurred to a crowd that’s abuzz with mixed feelings of disappointment and excitement.
The night ended shortly after, with even Jimmy Kimmel at a loss.
And there you have it, folks: a tale of mixup through GIF! What a wild moment movie fans will NEVER forget.
Does reliving the blinder through GIFs make it better or more cringe-worthy? Let us know @BritandCo!

Pocket doors are so delightful in and of themselves. They appear when you need them, get tucked away when you don't, and make it easy to define rooms while keeping an open floor plan. Add to the pocket door a joyful patterned wallpaper surprise, and you will be sent right into fits of visual jubilation! Or something ;) Today we're sharing two simple and impactful pocket door makeovers that zhuzh up your space in a jiffy.
Anjelika Temple here, co-founder of Brit + Co and proud owner of several pocket doors! When I moved into my first real grown-up house a couple years ago, I knew I wanted to incorporate wallpaper so reached out to our friends at Chasing Paper to see how we might collaborate. It felt like a total lightbulb moment when I realized I could create a surprise pop of pattern on a couple sets of pocket doors.
Not only is it a whimsical way to bring color into a space, but the doors double as picture-perfect backdrops for all your SFH (selfies from home, obvs).
A few pro tips about install:
- Removable wallpaper is miraculously forgiving! You can take it on and off multiple times without it losing integrity (or mucking up your surface).
- I ordered this adhesive wallpaper installation kit with a squeegee and xacto knife and it worked super well. I also recommend a sharp pair of scissors for cutting longer lines.
- This is a two-person job! Get a friend, put on a playlist, and get ready to bond.
- Wild, organic patterns like Tally are great because it's challenging to spot any imperfections in pattern alignment; keep pattern choice in mind if you've got a lot of corners to match up. More geometric patterns and larger shapes leave less room for error (but are awesome in their own right!).
BATHROOM POCKET DOORS
In our primary bathroom, we chose the wallpaper pattern Tally, designed by Kelly Ventura, in White and Navy. In our space, the navy reads as a soft black, which is perfect for the space. It's easy to combine an ever-rotating collection of linens with the Tally pattern.
I love how the white trim becomes the perfect frame around this pocket door piece of art.
My favorite moment in this space is the fact that you actually get a third pop of pattern thanks to our serendipitously placed mirror!
And yes, this one works pretty darn well as a backdrop too ;)
LIVING ROOM DOUBLE DOORS
This set of doors is definitely a focal point of our home. It separates our living room from our primary bedroom which opens onto our backyard. The doors are pretty much always open, but when they're closed we wanted to evoke a fun, nature-inspired vibe. With that in mind, we selected the Lines and Moons pattern by Thimblepress in Green and Brown.
Earth mama vibes up in here! I love how the shapes and colors echo the ferns you see through the windows and the acorn wood details throughout the house.
Love this pattern moment, and xacto-ing out the door handle is def on the oddly satisfying DIY list.
For a pattern lover like me, I love that now I have this instant photo backdrop!
