    The 2017 Oscars were the most controversial in years - not because of who won, but because an announced winner wasn't in fact a winner at all.

    Presenter Faye Dunaway named La La Land winner of 'Best Picture', and the movie's crew gave an acceptance speech — before producer Fred Berger came onstage to rain on their parade, and reveal Moonlight had in fact won.

    While a colossal gaffe, serious mishaps are common at awards shows.
