Al Pacino’s Oscar slip-up has been hailed as the worst error since the ‘La La Land’ mixup.

It wouldn’t be the Oscars without there was some type of on-stage slip-up or mistake, right?

This year’s blunder, which was not missed by anybody, saw iconic actor Al Pacino prematurely reveal the Academy Award for Best Picture, in what some are calling the worst error since the La La Land/Moonlight mixup of 2016.

When asked to deliver the Best Picture award, Al Pacino completely ignored the candidates, which is a significant oversight considering that Best Picture is often regarded as the most important of all the prizes to be awarded.

Unless you’re completely unfamiliar with awards season in the film business, you’ll be aware of how standard operating procedure for award presentation works.

The presenter, who is generally a well-known figure in the business, approaches the stage and begins by reading the nominees for the category in question. This is not just to remind people who has a possibility of winning, but also to guarantee that each and every nominee receives the respect they deserve.

At Tuesday night’s 96th Academy Awards, actor Al Pacino skipped that crucial step, instead opening the envelope and proclaiming Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer as the Best Picture winner.

In addition to Best Picture, Oppenheimer won six other honors Friday night, including Best Director, Best Actor, and Best Supporting Actor.

Pacino’s early announcement was a hot topic yesterday night, with internet users unable to stop themselves from reacting. It should be mentioned that most individuals saw the error in a funny light.

“Al Pacino creates a Moonlight/La La Land moment while still saying the correct name. One user wrote, “Master class.”

A follow-up statement read: “Whatever just happened with the Best Picture presentation wasn’t a La La Land/Moonlight screwup, but Pacino just blurting out ‘I see Oppenheimer here!’ was definitely not how it was supposed to go.”

A third person responded with a quip: “If Al Pacino said the winner was La La Land that would have been the best moment of the night.”

The La La Land allusions date back to 2016, when the prize for Best Picture was incorrectly declared as going to La La Land rather than Moonlight. To make matters worse, the error was revealed when people were giving their speeches.

According to rumors, on that occasion, the announcer was given the envelope for Best Actress (Emma Stone in La La Land) rather than Best Picture.
