Here’s what they shared about the now-infamous La La Land/Moonlight Best Picture mix-up:
Barry, on the major fail: “It’s messy, but it’s kind of gorgeous…You have these two groups of people who came together for a second. There’s a picture with me hugging Jordan (Horowitz, a producer of “La La Land”) and Adele (Romanski, producer of ‘Moonlight’) has her arm on his shoulder. That’s what the moment was.”
Damien, on the mess up: “Everything looked so energized, I, at first thought there was some kind of prank going on.”
