After temporarily suspending MoviePass at 10 major theaters around the country, AMC is will once again accept the subscription service at all locations, Entertainment Weekly reports.

In what is certainly the weirdest moment in Oscars history, the incorrect Best Picture winner was announced on stage to finish off the 89th Academy Awards. Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway first announced La La Land as the big winner of the night. The cast and crew walked onstage and began to make their speeches, only to be stopped halfway through -- the correct winner was actually Moonlight. Comedian Jackie Jennings quickly pointed out a perfect explanation for the bizarre mistake. La La Land's depressing dream sequence finale was oddly similar to the ending of the Oscars.
