Sunday night saw Hollywood's greatest gather for the annual Academy Awards, which recognises the best films from the last year.

The night was hosted by Jimmy Kimmel and went smoothly until the end of the ceremony when chaos took over.

Due to a mistake in envelope exchanges, La La Land was incorrectly read out as the winner of Best Picture in error, before it was given to Moonlight.
