Ryan Gosling laughed off the epic Best Picture screwup ... genuinely finding it hysterical.
Check out his expressions as defeat was snatched out of the hands of victory.
The "La La Land" star gets big points for his reactions.
Vanity Fair flexed some serious muscles for its after-party ... with one huge celeb after another rolling through.
The shindig at the Wallis Annenberg Center in Bev Hills was literally a star-studded affair ... from Casey Affleck and Viola Davis showing off their Oscars to power couples Jennifer Aniston/Justin Theroux and Ciara/Russell Wilson rolling through.
Steve offered some advice for Warren, but gotta say -- did NOT see this ending with an MLK quote.
The botched Best Picture screwup was the only thing celebs like James Marsden, Lisa Bonet, Alice Eve and others were talking about after the Oscars.
We got 'em all over town, and we'll say this ... the Oscar for Best Reaction to an Oscar Screwup goes to Sting and Trudie Styler!
We think, anyway. Can't trust these damn envelopes!
Warren Beatty brought proof to the Governors Ball HE didn't screw up the Oscars ... but the proof fell a tad short.
Warren hobnobbed with a slew of stars, envelope in hand, showing everyone the envelope he was given was for Best Actress. Thing is ... had he looked, it would have been apparent from the get-go.
Check out all the stars. Looks like a fun party ... except for the folks from "La La Land."
Emma Stone only rolls with the best ... and it doesn't get any better than an Oscar and a wave of her smoking hot friends!
The Best Actress winner -- gold statue in hand -- was leaving the "La La Land" after-party at the SoHo Sunday night. You gotta see the line of beauties hopping into their waiting ride.
Game clearly recognizes game.
In the greatest Oscars ending ever ... Warren and Faye called the 'La La' crew up onstage -- and they were several minutes into their acceptance speeches before someone figured out the massive screwup.
If you missed it you gotta see how it played out -- stage managers looked like Keystone Cops running around onstage. To their credit, the 'La La' folks graciously handed over their Oscars when the "Moonlight" cast and crew came up.
As for what went wrong? Watch ... Warren's explanation is an instant Hollywood classic, but basically he and Faye were handed the wrong card -- the one for Emma Stone's Best Actress win ... which had been handed out just before Best Picture.
Price Waterhouse just explained the obvious ... "The presenters had mistakenly been given the wrong category envelope and when discovered, was immediately corrected." Truth be told, not immediately. Also, why were there 2 "Best Actress" cards?
And get this -- Leo DiCaprio might be unwittingly involved! Best we can tell ... he walked off the stage holding Emma's envelope after her acceptance speech. We don't know what happened backstage, but somehow that card -- or a duplicate of it -- ended up in Warren and Faye's hands.
Nominees like Meryl Streep, Denzel Washington, Viola Davis, Ryan Gosling, Nicole Kidman, Justin Timberlake, and Janelle Monae came dressed to the nines, as did a ton of other celebs ... whether they were up for awards or just attending.
Check 'em all out, flashing their couture. No lack of glamour or cleavage here!
Naomie Harris was happy enough her movie won Best Picture, but she clearly feels the pain of the "La La Land" cast and crew.
We got Naomie leaving the Vanity Fair party Sunday night in Bev Hills, and the luster of winning clearly lost a little of its shine.
The Iranian director who was almost banned from attending the Oscars because of Donald Trump's travel ban blasted the Prez after he won Sunday ... but did it in writing.
Asghar Farhadi had a rep read a statement after winning the Best Foreign Film award for his movie "The Salesman" ... in which he explained his absence.
Farhadi -- who's won an Oscar before -- said he is standing in solidarity with his own country -- as well as the other 6 in Trump's now-blocked EO -- to protest the ban.
Since the ban was nullified by the courts, he could have attended had he wanted.
Jimmy Kimmel took a huge sarcastic swipe at President Trump ... all in support of some up and coming actress named Meryl Streep.
In the middle of Jimmy's opening monologue for the 89th Oscars he put the spotlight on Meryl by referencing Trump's "over-rated" tweet about her ... following her scathing speech about him in January.
Jimmy's obviously killed in what's definitely NOT a Trump-friendly room.
Ya gotta imagine Trump's Twitter finger is itching.
Terrence Howard isn't so sure Denzel Washington will bring home the Oscar, because he says he deserved it back in the day but went home empty.
We got the "Empire" star Saturday at the Independent Spirit Awards when he groused that he should have won best actor in 2006 for "Hustle & Flow." BTW ... it went to Philip Seymour Hoffman for "Capote."
What's cooler -- winning a Cy Young or a Grammy??
3-time MLB All-Star Barry Zito is trying to add to his trophy cabinet 'cause he wants BOTH!!
BZ's got a Cy Young -- given to the best pitcher in baseball -- from '02 with the Oakland A's. But now that the southpaw traded his glove for a guitar, would he give up the highest pitching honor to be recognized in the music industry?!
Zito's working on it. He released a 6-track country album titled "No Secrets" back in January ... and it's been a hit, appearing on several Billboard charts (#15, Americana/Folk Album Sales and #18, Heatseekers Albums).
