As a curiosity, this ceremony will be remembered for the tremendous failure happened when reading the final award for Best Picture by Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty, since a mistake in the envelopes changed the right one for the envelope to the Actress in a Leading Role, and for a moment La La Land was announced as the winner of the award, being actually for Moonlight.
