Jimmy Fallon: Oscars Best Picture Jokes

JIMMY FALLON: Did you see the Oscars last night? Great show. I thought Jimmy Kimmel did a great job hosting. Congrats to Jimmy. He's always good. But did you see what happened at the end? The producers of La La Land went up on stage after the movie was named Best Picture. Then, it was announced that they actually lost to Moonlight. And today, they joined a support group with the Atlanta Falcons and Hillary Clinton. They support each other.

It was a really crazy moment. In fact, Moonlight director Barry Jenkins said that he was speechless, not because he was surprised, because he'd torn up his speech when La La Land was announced.

Actually, several producers from La La Land had already given their acceptance speeches before the mistake was realized. That's pretty rough. I mean, now you've got to apologize to everyone you forgot to thank in your speech that didn't count.
