David Copperfield & Nancy O'Dell Parody Oscars 'La La Land' Best Picture Flub at ACM Awards 2017: Watch

At the 2017 ACM Awards, the first award of the night was preceded by the first great joke of the night, a classic fake-out regarding who won best song of the year.

Prior to presenters David Copperfield and Nancy O'Dell announcing that Thomas Rhett had won for his hit "Die A Happy Man," they joked that the winner was Emma Stone for La La Land -- even flashing the card on camera 'as proof' -- to parody the 2017 Oscars best picture flub. 

Fortunately, magician Copperfield was there to make things right; with a wave of his hand, the card changed to show the real winner (Rhett). 

The ACM Awards are produced by dick clark productions. DCP is part of Eldridge Industries, the U.S. holding company whose assets also include the Hollywood Reporter-Billboard Media Group.
