Whether it's the pressure of announcing the biggest award at the biggest award ceremony in the movie business or not, it seems that the 'Best Picture' Oscar announcement comes with a side helping of chaos.

In recent years we've seen confusion around the announcement following the 'La La Land'/'Moonlight' debacle in 2017 - and for a moment, it looked like history was about to repeat itself.

Al Pacino took to the stage to reveal 'Oppenheimer' as the winner of the Best Picture Oscar last night, but his style left a lot to be desired in terms of clarity.

The legendary 83-year-old actor took to the stage and skipped past the part where the nominees are announced, instead telling the audience: "Only one will take the award for Best Picture. And, uh, I have to go to the envelope for that," as he opened the envelope while organisers were presumably frantically begging him to remember the nominees. Instead, he said "And I will. Here it comes.... And my eyes see... Oppenheimer?"

At first, no one in the audience seem aware if he's joking or not, and the applause is muted until music begins playing and the 'Oppenheimer' team realise that he's serious.

Social media fans seemed both amused and annoyed by the fact that Pacino messed up the announcement of the biggest award on the night.
