La La Land actor Ryan Gosling's reaction to what is being termed as the biggest blunder in Oscars history, was priceless.

The best picture Oscar blunder prompted snickering from Ryan Gosling and a cascade of politically tinged jokes on Twitter, with some even declaring Hillary Clinton the winner.

The sarcasm started after La La Land was wrongly announced as the best picture winner instead of Moonlight, drawing a giggle from Gosling, who was on stage with the La La Land cast when the real winner was announced.

And while memes using the Oscar winner envelope held up by La La Land producer Jordan Horowitz were edited to instead show titles of films that have garnered little attention from the Academy, including Ernest Goes to Camp and Space Jam, it was Gosling's epic reaction to the Oscar faux pas that had the netizens talking on social media.

While the cast of La La Land was in shock at the wrong announcement of their film being the winner, social media users thought that Gosling's reaction to the whole episode was the best thing and was totally relatable.

Here's what people wrote on Twitter:

Here's what Emma Stone, who won an Oscar for Best Actress in a leading role for La La Land, had to say about the entire episode.

PwC, formerly Priceaaterhouse Coopers, wrote in a statement that several mistakes were made and two of its partners assigned to the prestigious awards show did not act quickly enough when La La Land was mistakenly announced as the best picture winner.

"PwC takes full responsibility for the series of mistakes and breaches of established protocols during last night's Oscars," PwC wrote. It said its partner, Brian Cullinan, mistakenly handed presenters Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway an envelope containing the winner of the best actress award.
