Bonnie and Clyde's boo-boo, dress sketches and best tweets from the Academy Awards

1. Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway pulled a Steve Harvey
In case you missed it, Bonnie and Clyde themselves didn't quite save the best for last and mistakenly read out the wrong best picture winner: La La Land instead of Moonlight.


2. La La Land bagged six Oscars
While they didn't take home the biggest award, Damien Chazelle's La La Land bagged six awards in the music and acting categories, including one for first time winner Emma Stone. 2016's best actress winner is seen here embracing Stone.

3. Casey Affleck took home best actor, which split the audience
Brie Larson didn't applaud, Chrissy Teigen pretended to sleep and both women and men everywhere were either congratulatory, or held their pause.


4. Multi-tasking at the makeup chair
Moonlight actress Naomie Harris grabs a quick bite before the big night, while Emma Stone's makeup artist spills some red carpet beauty secrets.
