Sure, everyone’s talking about the Best Picture envelope mishap.

Less people are talking about Moana‘s Auli’i Cravahlo getting whacked in the head by a flag.

The sixteen year old who voices Moana was singing the Oscar nominated song “How Far I’ll Go” and toward the end, right before the crescendo, she gets whacked in the head. In front of a billion people, Cravahlo didn’t even flinch–she was gearing up for the crescendo–and continued singing as if nothing happened.

Lin-Manuel Miranda and Auli’i Cravahlo Perform

UPDATE: Auli’i says she was hit by a flag pole not just fluffy piece of fabric. And it had happened during rehearsals as well.
