Oscar fiasco #7.

Time: March 16, 1934, 6th annual Academy Awards
Fiasco: Host Will Rogers announces the winner for Best Director by joyously shouting, "Come and get it, Frank!" Frank Capra jumps to his feet, rushes to the stage, and realizes Rogers was talking about Cavalcade director Frank Lloyd. Fiasco? Frank Lloyd, right!*

*What Bob Hope would have said had he been hosting.
