Everyone had a take on last night's Oscars snafu, but library assistant Lydia Sigwarth should take top prize.

Due to a mix-up with the envelopes, the presenters mistakenly announced the wrong winner for Best Picture, handing the trophies to the producers of "La La Land" before it was revealed "Moonlight" was the true winner.

In Wisconsin, Sigwarth turned the Platteville Public Library's children section into a running commentary, using nothing but book titles.

Lydia, you should tell everyone to:
