Another Oscars is in the books and, once again, the results were unsurprising for the most part. La La Land, as predicted by bookies, took home the big award by winning the Best Picture category...

Whoa whoa whoa—WAIT. Apparently presenter Warren Beatty had the wrong envelope, and Moonlight was the real winner! In what was the most surreal moment in Oscars history, the people behind La La Land had already come on stage to accept the award when it was revealed that the Moonlight crew were supposed to be up there.

Moonlight also received some (snafu-free) recognitions when writer/director Barry Jenkins won for Best Adapted Screenplay, and when Mahershala Ali scored the Best Supporting Actor nod.

La La Land still had a perfectly respectable night, however. Emma Stone won the Best Actress statue for her role, and Damien Chazelle took the award for Directing—at age 32, he became the youngest person to ever win it for the category (Martin Scorsese was 64 when he finally got his). In total, the love note to Los Angeles received six awards for the night.

In what was supposed to be the only bit drama of the night, Denzel Washington had a slight edge over Casey Affleck in the Best Actor category—Affleck and his scraggly beard would pull off the upset.

Also of note: Suicide Squad won an award for Makeup and Hairstyling. That's right, the movie that had once been described as a "huge swirling vortex of trash," and which had inspired an online petition that asked people to stop bashing it, took home a golden statue. This means it got a bigger haul than Scorsese's Silence.

Enough of using Scorsese as a barometer for Oscar glory, here's a full list of winners (as it stands at the moment, wow) from the night:
