On his talk show late Monday, Oscars host Jimmy Kimmel describes the chaotic ending to the 2017 Oscars.
It was the gaffe watched live ’round the world.
Three and a half hours into the Oscars, at its culminating Best Picture announcement, presenters Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway were handed the wrong envelope and announced the wrong winner for the Academy's top Oscar.
In a flurry of excitement then confusion and the stage manager rushing the stage, it took more than two minutes to correct the error that indeed Emma Stone and "La La Land" did not win Best Picture, but it was the producers of "Moonlight" who should have been announced.
On his talk show late Monday, Oscars host Jimmy Kimmel described the chaos.
"Except for the end, it was a lot of fun," Kimmel said, as he described his hosting experience. "It went very well. We were chugging along and then after of a sudden, out of nowhere, it turned into one of those Maury Povich paternity test shows."
"It was the weirdest TV finale since 'Lost.' "

Kimmel also shared "security camera footage" revealing what really happened backstage.
