James Corden's spoof of the Oscars 'La La Land' mix-up is hilarious

It’s the biggest showbiz story of the week, so it was never going to be too long before James Corden got his teeth stuck into the Best Picture Oscar announcement mix-up.

And, sure enough, this La La Land Oscar blunder parody is another piece of must-watch viral gold from the host of the Late Late Show.

Donning a wig and jumper to play Emma Stone’s character Mia, he’s asked by the audition panel to “paint us a picture”, which he does, reminiscing how, for two sweet minutes, “My film used to be Best Picture.”

Before long, he bursts into song, providing an emotion-filled performance, including the immortal lines: “Here’s to the ones who lose. God, I need so much booze. Here’s to the ones who hope… who switched that envelope?”

One YouTuber, one of the first to view the clip, has already provided some comment gold:
