Unless you're like me and you slept through The Oscars because you had the flu, you know about the huge (and hilarious) mishap where La La Land was announced as the winner of Best Picture when really, it was Moonlight. Basically, presenters Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway were handed the wrong envelope for what is only the most important award in the movie industry, announced La La Land as the winner, and then had the entire cast come up to accept only to tell them to go sit back down. Although this was extremely embarrassing for the Academy Awards, it was hilarious for viewers (I Googled all of this after awaking from my flu coma).
It was an epic moment that will go down in history, and would've been even more epic if one of these songs were playing...
1. "It's Not You" - Halestorm
"No offense, I'm in love with somebody... And it's not you." The Oscars were probably like, "Sorry La La Land, you were cool and everything, but nah."
2. "I Don't Love You" - My Chemical Romance
With all of La La Land's Oscar nominations/wins, it seems as though the movie was in a relationship with the award show - so this song is kind of like their breakup...
3. "Never Be Like You" - Flume (ft. Kai)
"I'm only human can't you see, I made a mistake," is what the stagehand who handed Warren Beatty the wrong card cried right before getting fired.
4. "I Don't F**k With You" - Big Sean (ft. E-40)
What the cast of Moonlight sang in Emma Stone's face immediately after finding out they won.
5. "Perfect Illusion" - Lady Gaga
La La Land didn't win Best Picture, it was just a perfect illusion.
6. "Sorry" - Justin Bieber
"Look, I know I just announced the wrong movie for Best Picture on live television in front of millions of viewers... But is it too late now to say sorry?"
7. "All I Do Is Win" - Dj Khaled (ft. Ludacris, Rick Ross, T-Pain & Snoop Dogg)
When the Moonlight cast walks on stage to redeem their award.
