The "scandal" became known as "envelopegate", with accounting firm PricewaterHouseCoopers revealing that one of their partners handed the Hollywood legends the wrong envelope.

Guillermo del Toro, Sally Hawkins, Octavia Spencer, Michael Shannon and Richard Jenkins took home the top award for "Shape of Water", announced without confusion or mistake.

Minutes later while the filmmakers behind La La Land were celebrating, the show's producers stormed the stage and eventually Moonlight was rightfully given the award.

In his opening monologue, host Jimmy Kimmel even joked about last year's debacle, saying he "presided over the most calamitous finale in Oscars history".

Hollywood called it "Envelopegate" and promised that it wouldn't happen again.

"We sincerely apologize to Moonlight, La La Land, Warren Beatty, Faye Dunaway and Oscar viewers for the error that was made during the award announcement for best picture".

La La Land producer Jordan Horowitz said: "There's a mistake".

After Mr. Beatty opened the envelope onstage, he hesitated.

Last year's PwC accountants, Brian Cullinan and Martha Ruiz, were replaced by Rick Rosas and Kimberly Bourdon. It's very humbling to be up here and I hope it's inspiring to little black boys and brown girls who feel marginalised.

Despite the infamous incident The Academy has made a decision to retain accounting firm PwC despite the now infamous Best Picture flub.

Warren Beatty has been nominated for fourteen Academy Awards - four for Best Actor, four for Best Picture, two for Best Director, three for Original Screenplay, and one for Adapted Screenplay - winning Best Director for Reds (1981).

The drama, starring Trevante Rhodes, Ashton Sanders and Alex Hibbert, won three Oscars from eight nominations a year ago.
