Salma Hayek Recalls Jimmy Kimmel’s Crazy Oscars When The Wrong Winner Was Announced And Why She Knew What Had Happened Right Away


Do you all remember five years ago when the Oscars accidentally gave Best Picture to the wrong winner? Well, Salma Hayek can certainly recall being present when the wrong envelope was opened and Moonlight was later revealed as the true winner instead of the previously announced La La Land. It was a surprising moment, to say the least. And interestingly, Hayek explained to Jimmy Kimmel (who hosted the show that year) that she could tell something wasn’t right even before that crazy Academy Awards moment took place.

If you recall, the audience at the 89th Academy Awards was dumbfounded upon seeing  La La Land producers Jordan Horowitz rush to the microphone to reveal that his musical romantic drama did not, in fact, win Best Picture. And it’s probably fair to say that many people watching at home felt the same way. However, Salma Hayek, who recently appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, explained that there was one key behind-the-scenes factor that tipped her off that something wasn’t right:

You know, I saw it coming. I saw it happening before it happened. Because the guy that was in the aisle, one of those people saying ‘Yeah, ok I’m going to get the camera.’ Everybody was looking and I just see him go ‘What?! What do I do? What do I do? I can’t, I can’t tell them. I can’t go up on stage. Somebody else has to do it. Please don’t make me go up there. What are we doing? Do we go to commercial?’ He was so nervous and I said ‘Oh this is not the right winner.’
