Warren Beatty supposedly misread the envelope and the La La Land producers were interrupted mid-speech by the Moonlight crew who’d actually won the award.

Beatty claims he paused because the name he read was Emma Stone, La La Land. Actress but the real winner was Moonlight.

More of a concept than a journalist, Tom Percival was forged in the bowels of Salford University from which he emerged grasping a Masters in journalism. Since then his rise has been described by himself as ‘meteoric’ rising to the esteemed rank of Social Editor at UNILAD as well as working at the BBC, Manchester Evening News, and ITV. He credits his success to three core techniques, name repetition, personality mirroring, and never breaking off a handshake.
