The confusion over whether La La Land or Moonlight won Best Film at the Oscars was just due to a change in the voting system, it has been confirmed.

The Academy have now moved to an electoral college system of voting, giving more weight to certain members’ votes based on their gravitas.

“La La Land got more votes,” explained an Academy spokesperson, “but failed to win over the key swing members Harrison Ford and Jack Nicholson.”

Reports of Vladimir Putin sneaking away from the ceremony whilst laughing manically are unconfirmed.
