Playing Jimmy Kimmel Blames Steve Harvey for That Huge Mistake at the Oscars -- and the Internet Is Loving It!

Yes, that really just happened at Hollywood's biggest night!

In the final moments of Sunday's broadcast of the 89th Annual Academy Awards, presenters Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway mistakenly announced La La Land as the winner for Best Picture, but in reality, it was actually Moonlight that earned the top honor of the night.

"Guys. This is very unfortunate, what happened," host Jimmy Kimmel said to the stunned audience before cracking a joke. "Personally, I blame Steve Harvey for this."

As the internet very clearly remembers, Harvey made the now-infamous mistake of announcing the wrong winner of Miss Universe in 2015. After accidentally crowning Miss Colombia instead of the real winner, Miss Philippines, Miss Universe host Steve Harvey said it was "an honest mistake" resulting from misreading the card.

Naturally, fans are having a field day on social media with the Harvey memes -- and we're loving every second of it!

Even the Miss Universe organization joined in on the good-natured fun!

"Have your people call our people - we know what to do. #Oscars #MissUniverse," the official Miss Universe organization tweeted shortly after the mistake.

Touché, internet. Well done.
