Hollywood’s biggest night, the 89th Annual Academy Awards is off and running from the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles, and that means it’s finally time to raise a glass to the crème de la crème of the movie biz.

The show kicked off on Sunday evening with one dazzling red carpet, and now host Jimmy Kimmel behind the driver’s seat. But no one could have predicted the mighty mix-up that took place on centre stage last night. Having presented the award to La La Land for the best picture, only to have their acceptance speech interrupted, PWC, half way to be told, ‘sorry losers’ it was meant to be for Moonlight. How embarrassing!

Watch all the footage and catch the latest gossip below.
