ABC/Eddy Chen(LOS ANGELES) -- Moonlight won Best Picture at the 2017 Oscars -- but it was La La Land that  was mistakenly first announced as the winner.

Co-presenters Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway read La La Land, right after La La Land star Emma Stone won best actress for her role in the modern-day musical.

"I wasn't trying to be funny," presenter Warren Beatty later added after the real winner was revealed.  As it happened, Beatty had been given the wrong envelope -- the Best Actress envelope -- and that's the one that was read.

After the cast took the stage, a producer for La La Land set things straight, declaring, "Moonlight is the winner ... this is not a joke."

Host Jimmy Kimmel joked and said, "I blame Steve Harvey," alluding to Harvey's gaffe announcing the wrong Miss Universe winner a year ago.

After the mistake, the crowd erupted in surprise and applause for Moonlight, as director and writer Barry Jenkins, the cast and crew dashed on stage to accept the win.

"I have to say and it is true, it's not fake," Jenkins said. "I've been on the road with these guys for so long."

But in his excitement, he made sure to give the movie that was wrongfully announced its due.

"I love La La Land," he said. "Thank you to the Academy, it is so humbling to be standing up there. ... There was a time that I thought this movie was impossible because I couldn't bring it to fruition. ... Everybody behind me on this stage said, 'No, that’s not acceptable,' so I just wanna thank everyone behind me.'"

For his part, Beatty later told the Los Angeles Times, “I looked down at the card and thought, 'This is very strange, because it says best actress.' Maybe there was a misprint. I don't know what happened. And that's all I have to say on the subject.”

PriceWaterhouseCoopers, the official talliers of Oscar votes and keepers of the winners, issued a statement not long after the ceremony ended, declaring, ""We sincerely apologize to Moonlight, La La Land, Warren Beatty, Faye Dunaway, and Oscar viewers for the error that was made during the award announcement for Best Picture.  The presenters had mistakenly been given the wrong category envelope and when discovered, was immediately corrected.  We are currently investigating how this could have happened, and deeply regret that this occurred.  We appreciate the grace with which the nominees, the Academy, ABC, and Jimmy Kimmel handled the situation."

While it lost Best Picture, La La Land did win six awards overall, including Best Actress for Emma Stone, as well as Best Original Song for "City of Stars," Best Original Score and Best Director for Damien Chazelle.  Moonlight, meanwhile, also won Best Supporting Actor for Mahershala Ali, and Best Adapted Screenplay.

ABC/Eddy Chen(LOS ANGELES) -- In his opening monologue as host of the Academy Awards Sunday night, Jimmy Kimmel didn't hold back, poking fun at President Donald Trump, close friend and pretend-enemy Matt Damon, and even Denzel Washington.

Kimmel came out and immediately addressed the elephant in the room. He said that many people had told him that the country is so divided right now he should address it. "I can't do that," he said.

"There's only one 'Braveheart' in the room," he said of Oscar-winner Mel Gibson, who is nominated again this year for directing Hacksaw Ridge. "And he's not going to unite us, either," Kimmel added as the crowd laughed.

Kimmel got more serious then when he said that if everyone watching right now "took a moment to reach out to one person you disagree with and have a positive, considerate conversation ... we could really make America great again."

But just as quickly, the host's jokes began rolling again. Kimmel feigned as if he wanted to bury the hatchet with Matt Damon before making fun of the actor's choice to pass up starring in Manchester by the Sea, only to star in Great Wall, or as he described it, a "Chinese ponytail movie instead and that movie went on to lose $80 million. Smooth move, dumba---."

"When I first met Matt, I was the fat one," he also joked.

Kimmel's first crack on Trump was thanking him because, "remember when last year, the Oscars were considered racist?"

After picking on Oscar nominee Denzel Washington for directing himself in the film Fences, he teased French actress and nominee Isabelle Huppert.

"We didn't see Elle, but we absolutely loved it," he said. "I'm glad Homeland Security let you in tonight," he added, a joke apparently about Trump's order restricting entry into the U.S. of people from seven Muslim-majority countries, which has been put on hold by the courts.

Finally, Kimmel closed with a riff on Meryl Streep, the actress who's nominated for her 20th Oscar this year and whom Trump called overrated after she gave a speech at the Golden Globes that criticized the president without naming him.

"One actress has stood the test of time for her many uninspiring and overrated performances," Kimmel said. "[She's] phoned it in for more than 50 films. This is Meryl's 20th Oscar nomination ... she wasn't even in a movie this year, we just wrote her name in out of habit."

He closed with, "Some of you will [win tonight] and give a speech that the president of the United States will tweet about in all caps."

ABC/Tyler Golden(LOS ANGELES) -- If you watched the red carpet coverage of the Oscars Sunday night, one thing you noticed was a lot of celebs were wearing blue lapel ribbons.

As part of a new initiative to support the American Civil Liberties Union, Oscar nominees and other stars were wearing blue ribbons with the organization's name on them.

Among the stars wearing the ribbons as part of the "Stand With ACLU" campaign were Lin-Manuel Miranda and his mother, as well as Loving star Ruth Negga and others.

The accessory of the night at the Oscars isn't a shiny designer clutch or a strappy stiletto. It's an @ACLU ribbon. https://t.co/irK08GBvpC pic.twitter.com/ASSDNZ4jPJ

— NYT Fashion (@NYTFashion) February 27, 2017

The Oscars actually aren't the first event at which celebs have supported the cause, which was just launched. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Manchester by the Sea star Casey Affleck wore a blue ribbon Saturday night at the Independent Spirit Awards. The outlet adds that in the past three months, the organization's membership has doubled and it has raised millions in online donations.

In February, the ACLU announced it would create a "rapid response team" to help those deported or kept out of the United States following President Donald Trump's travel ban, which has since been halted by a federal court judge in Washington state.

As the stars walked the Oscars red carpet, the official ACLU Twitter page shared photos of the celebs wearing the ribbons.

"Who ever thought we'd be fashion icons?" the organization wrote, thanking the celebs for their support.

Silver Screen Collection/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Joseph Wapner, the judge who rose to fame on TV's The People's Court, has died, according to the Washington Post.  He was 97.

The People's Court,debuting in 1981, was TV's first reality courtroom series.  Wapner presided over the courtroom for 12 seasons during the show's first run in syndication, which ended in 1993. It inspired many other shows, such as Judge Judy and Hot Bench.  He later appeared on Judge Wapner's Animal Court, which ran for two seasons.

Wapner served as a Los Angeles County Superior Court judge for 18 years before retiring in 1979.

Wapner became a pop culture figure, most memorably in the 1988 film Rain Man, in which Dustin Hoffman's character, an autistic man, has a constant need to stick to his routines, which include watching The People's Court.  Any time it seems that he will not be able to watch the show, he repeats the time remaining until the show airs -- for example,  "One minute to Wapner" -- again and again.  Wapner also occasionally appeared on TV shows as himself.

In November of 2009, he received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.  A day later, in honor of his 90th birthday, Wapner returned to The People's Court in a one-time-only appearance as a guest judge.

In a 2005 interview with the Archive of American Television, Wapner said he'd like to be "remembered as a judge who acted as a judge should … I want to be remembered in a kindly way, in a positive way, someone who had an influence on the law, the way people act, the way people should act."

Christopher Polk/Getty Images for Critics' Choice Television Awards(NEW YORK) -- Bill Paxton, an actor who developed a following for his roles in films that achieved both mainstream and cult success starting in the 1980s, died Sunday at age 61.

A representative of his family confirmed the death to ABC News.

"It is with heavy hearts we share the news that Bill Paxton has passed away due to complications from surgery," the statement said. "A loving husband and father, Bill began his career in Hollywood working on films in the art department and went on to have an illustrious career spanning four decades as a beloved and prolific actor and filmmaker. Bill's passion for the arts was felt by all who knew him, and his warmth and tireless energy were undeniable."

The statement concludes, "We ask to please respect the family's wish for privacy as they mourn the loss of their adored husband and father."

A native of Fort Worth, Texas, Paxton became known as a versatile character actor, appearing in an eclectic group of hit films that include Weird Science, Aliens, Apollo 13, Titanic, Twister, and True Lies.

He also won devoted fans for his acting in beloved midnight movies and for his memorable drawl, which at times sounded part Texan and part slacker.

Paxton starred as a sadistic vampire in director Kathryn Bigelow's cult classic Near Dark, and as a quirky bartender in director Walter Hill's Streets of Fire.

Later in his career, he earned a new generation of fans for his leading performance in the HBO drama Big Love, which aired from 2006 to 2011 and earned him four Golden Globe nominations. He also earned an Emmy nomination for his worn in the History Channel miniseries Hatfields & McCoys, and most recently starred in the CBS drama Training Day.

ABC/Randy Holmes(NEW YORK) -- Jordan Peele has taken a step behind the camera in his directorial debut, Get Out. But sketch-comic-turned-director says he wasn't sure that the racial horror movie, which has been years in the making, would see the light of day.

"This is a movie I thought would never get made," Peele tells ABC Radio. "There's a reason we haven't seen a horror movie that tackles the real-life horror of race in a long time, since The-Night-of-the-Living-Dead long. Fifty years ago long," he added, referring to the 1968 cult zombie classic. "That's one of the reasons why I thought no one would ever make it. It's too messed up, it's too edgy."

The movie, which hits theaters on Friday, centers around Daniel Kaluuya and Allison Williams as Chris and Rose, a young interracial couple who head to Rose's parents' estate so that Chris can meet the parents for the first time. While there, mysterious things begin to happen to Chris after Rose's parents learn that he's black.

Jordan says that despite the chance of the movie's racial themes proving contentious, the effort was supported early on by "producers and Universal" who did not want Peele to, "shy away from the controversy." 

Peele also explains that he wanted to "cover an entire spectrum of conversation with this movie," which according to the director was possible since the timing was right.

"The timing of it is kind of uncanny," Peele says. "And it feels like we're now at a time where you can't get away from the discussion of race and racism anymore. And people are intrigued and willing to have this conversation."

Getty Images/Gallo Images(LONDON) -- Media mogul Oprah Winfrey has been very open in the past on why she didn't have any children, and in a new interview with Good Housekeeping UK, she explains that the young women she mentors are like her kids.

Oprah currently mentors 172 girls at the school she supports.  She says they use "my home as their home base" and that, she says, is more than enough for the icon.

"It is more rewarding than I would ever have imagined. I was doing this to help them, but it has brought a light to my life that I can’t explain," she said of the Leadership Academy she champions.

"For me it was perfect, because I didn’t want babies," she added. "I wouldn’t have been a good mom for babies. I don’t have the patience. I have the patience for puppies, but that’s a quick stage! But this is so rewarding."

She continued, "When people were pressuring me to get married and have children, I knew I was not going to be a person that ever regretted not having them, because I feel like I am a mother to the world’s children. Love knows no boundaries."

She expressed a similar sentiment to The Hollywood Reporter in 2013, saying "If I had kids, my kids would hate me. They would have ended up on the equivalent of the Oprah show talking about me because something [in my life] would have had to suffer and it would've probably been them."

In the new interview, Winfrey, who earlier this year revealed she lost 42 pounds on Weight Watchers, also spoke about her lifelong battle with weight and food.

"[My weight] has been the go-to comfort for me. You use it as your coat and your shield, and it keeps you from doing things…But the wonderful thing for me is that I reached a point where I no longer wanted to hide," she said.

ABC/Ida Mae Astute(LOS ANGELES) -- Hugh Jackman rose to stardom playing the iconic Logan/Wolverine character in 2000's X-Men. At the time, Jackman was a substitute for actor Dougray Scott, who had been cast but then dropped out.  Seventeen years later, Jackman is now virtually synonymous with Wolverine, though he says his new movie, simply called Logan, will mark his last appearance as the razor-clawed mutant. Still, he says he'll miss the comic book hero he's played in nine movies.

"It's kind of like leaving the best part of your life," Jackman told Michael Strahan. "There's a point where you should go, and this is just that time and I hope it will never leave me. The fans come up to me every day of my life and I love them...this character, I love."

The idea for a stark film featuring a beaten-down version of Wolverine awoke him from sleep nearly "two years to the day," the actor explained. "We tried to make something that didn't feel like a comic book movie...a movie that people [who] never, ever seen a comic book movie who would go to."

Directed by Oscar-winner James Mangold, who called the shots on The Wolverine, Jackman's Logan hits theaters March 3, but has already received rave reviews.

With the Oscars two days away, Jackman, a veteran song and dance man who hosted the awards show in 2009, said this year's host, Jimmy Kimmel, is probably "quite relaxed."

"Now you go into this thing of camera rehearsals, and today's Friday so he will be at the stage today," Jackman explained. "[T]hat guy is a pro. I love Jimmy and I think he's going to be so excited. It's his moment...my goal was to have the time of my life whether it worked or not."

Getty Images/Dave J. Hogan(LONDON) -- Last night, Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, and their co-stars in the live-action retelling of Disney's Beauty and the Beast attended the movie's world premiere at the Odeon Leicester Square cinema in London, following a reception at the historic Spencer House. 

A short sneak peek of the film that premiered online late last year broke viewership records, and the full trailer also went immediately viral. 

On Watson's new Instagram account dedicated to the sustainable fashions she's wearing during the Beauty press tour, she noted she wore a "bespoke" creation from designer Emilia Wickstead.

It was a, "structural, off-the-shoulder gown with inverted pleat train...made from end-of-line fabric sourced from a family-run, London business specialising in couture fabrics, and produced in Italy." Watson added, "These unwanted fabric pieces have been given a new lease of life; often irregular quantities of surplus or end-of-line fabrics cannot be sold and are destroyed. This piece was created in Emilia Wickstead's London atelier, by an all-female team."

Beauty and the Beast, which also stars Josh Gad, and the voices of Ewan McGregor, Ian McKellen, and Emma Thompson, opens March 17.

ABC/Jeff Lipsky(LOS ANGELES) -- The 89th Academy Awards, hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, will air live from the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood on Sunday night, beginning 8:30 p.m. ET on ABC. The network's red carpet coverage gets under way at 7 p.m. ET.

If last month's Golden Globe Awards are any indication, politics will take center stage at Sunday's Oscars show, and for his part Kimmel tells ABC News you can can expect to hear President Donald Trump's name several times.

"I'm sure it will come up repeatedly throughout the show, and I'm guessing that the President won't be the most popular guy," he says. "I'd really love to just bring him on stage, that would be the best surprise for everyone."  

There are nine nominees for best picture this year, with the modern-day musical La La Land being the odds-on favorite. It's the leading nominee with a record-tying 14 nods. Director Damien Chazelle is favored to walk off with best director and its stars, Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone, are also a frontrunners for best actor and actress. However, Gosling faces stiff competition from Denzel Washington, who stars in another best picture contender, Fences.  

This year's nominees are certainly more diverse than last year's #OscarsSoWhite ceremony: six black actors have received nominations, while three Best Picture nominees focus on the struggles of black men and women: Moonlight, Fences and Hidden Figures.

The rest of the best picture nominees are ArrivalHacksaw RidgeHell or High WaterLion and Manchester by the Sea.

Washington's Fences co-star, Viola Davis, took home a Golden Globe for supporting actress for her role as his wife in the movie, and is the favorite to win the Oscar as well. Mahershala Ali, who also won a Golden Globe for his supporting role in Moonlight, has a good shot at wining Sunday.

Elsewhere, Arrival and Moonlight both have eight nominations; Hacksaw RidgeLion and Manchester by the Sea each have six.

ABC/Patrick Ecclesine(NEW YORK) -- On Friday's episode of ABC's Shark Tank, the hit show's investors -- Mark Cuban, Daymon John, Kevin "Mr. Wonderful" O'Leary, Barbara Corcoran, and Robert Herjavek -- cross a major milestone: the 100 millionth dollar invested in entrepreneurs' ideas since the show began.

Following the episode, a special installment of 20/20 will highlight the show's success, and also feature exclusive interviews with the sharks, and follow-ups about the reality show's biggest deals.

Daymon John, who fronts the multi-million dollar lifestyle brand FUBU, explained to ABC Radio that the $100 million mark is a "landmark," adding that Shark Tank has created "probably 10,000 jobs, I don't know how many millionaires."

"More importantly, it showed people that the American Dream of believing in entrepreneurs and supporting each other it's alive and we love it," John explained. "[W]e're just happy to be a part of it, and hopefully we'll get to a billion!"

For his part, O'Leary was surprised by both the show's eight-season-long success, but also its global reach: the formula has been spun off to other countries.

"Shark Tank's not just a phenomenal, you know, explosion in America," O'Leary notes. "It's in Canada, it's in Finland, it's in Portugal, it's in England!  I mean, when I travel internationally, people say to me, "You're the guy from Shark Tank!" And I go, "How do you know Shark Tank?" Oh, we have it on here in Finland! So it's become a global phenomenon." 

Shark Tank airs at 9 p.m. Eastern time. 20/20's "Shark Tank: The Road to $100 Million," airs directly after.
