The Award For Grace Goes To 'La La Land' Producer Jordan Horowitz

When something goes wrong it can be handled with grace, style, and class; or it can be handled with blame, finger pointing, and a definite lack of class. Late Sunday night at the 2017 Academy Awards show we saw a little of both as the Best Picture award was given to the wrong film. Indeed this moment will go down in history. I'm hoping this history remembers the grace, style, and class of the moment by La La Land Producer Jordan Horowitz, and even Warren Beatty.
