For the entertainment world, nothing has dominated recent headlines like the now infamous Best Picture mix-up between La La Land and Moonlight at this year's Academy Awards. So, of course, late night hosts like James Corden are having a field day.

 

Among the more hilarious interpretations of that fateful night comesJames Corden's parody of the iconic La La Land scene, "Audition", during which he sings the Oscar nominated song -- but with a bit of twist.

Standing in place of Emma Stone alongside Ryan Gosling, Corden begins to sing, but, this time, the lyrics are a bit different. When urged by the audition panel to tell them a story, Corden launches into his version of what happened that night.

He begins by setting the scene, speaking of the joy the La La Land cast and crew felt after it was announced that they had won, before beginning his song.

"Was this a mixup?" he asks, "A conspiracy? A fixup? Or was Warren Beatty just blind?"

He goes on to dedicate his song to the ones who lose, "the ones who hope," asking "Who switched that envelope?"

Corden also comments on the heightened diversity among this year's nominees in the line "Oscars used to be so white," a direct reference to last year's heavily used hashtag #OscarsSoWhite.

He then pokes fun at the cast and audience reactions to the mixup, calling attention to Ryan Gosling, director Damien Chazelle, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, and "Chrissy Teigen's man" John Legend. The video ends with Corden pretending to hold back tears as the audience applauds.

The parody comes on the heels of a slew of Oscar's commentary and comedic reactions, but -- in typical Late Late Show fashion -- manages to stand out with its creativity and outrageous-ness.
