And the winner is La La Land… the best picture in Oscars 2017… Oh no sorry, it’s the Moonlight that won the best picture title.
The 89th Academy Awards Night has celebrated the biggest and best names in the international movie business. The award ceremony was held at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles. Casey Affleck won the Best Actor Award for ‘Manchester By The Sea’ and Emma Stone walked away with the Best Actress Award for her performance in ‘La La Land’.
The Oscars 2017 ceremony ended with much drama that was similar to the confusion during the announcement of Miss Universe title, wherein, ‘La La Land’ was initially declared as the Best Picture, but it was soon announced that there was an error and the Best Picture Award was, in fact, won by ‘Moonlight’.
While confusion prevailed for a while, the makers of ‘La La Land’ graciously left the stage and made way for makers of ‘Moonlight’. Damien Chazelle won the Best Director Award for ‘La La Land’.
The evening ended with ‘La La Land’ taking home six awards while ‘Moonlight’ won three golden statuettes.
The ceremony was hosted by Jimmy Kimmel who took quite a few jabs at the US President Donald Trump.
