Moonlight literally just pulled the biggest upset in history.

In what has got to be the biggest gaff in Oscar's history, Warren Beatty accidentally announced La La Land as the winner of best picture. But when the cast took the stage to accept the award, one of the producers realised the name on the correct envelope was in fact Moonlight.

The La La Land cast then took it upon themselves to immediately correct the mistake and welcome the Moonlight team on stage to exchange the awards. Jimmy Kimmel tried to lighten the mood by making jokes as the correct winners made it to the podium. In Beatty's defence, it does appear he was given the wrong envelope.

Watch it all below, because honestly words can't describe this.
