Oscars 2017 – The Winners & The Controversy

MOONLIGHT is the shock winner of the Best Picture Award at the 89th Academy Awards in what critics are already describing as the ‘biggest moment in Oscar history’.  Warren Beatty – presenting the award with Faye Dunaway – announced LA LA LAND as the (widely-anticipated) winner, only for confusion to ensue as, while the whole cast & crew of the film were already on stage and acceptance speeches in full flow, host Jimmy Kimmel announced that Beatty had read out the wrong name and that the winner was really MOONLIGHT.

The controversial moment capped a night that saw LA LA LAND take just six of the 14 categories it was nominated for, including Best Actress for Emma Stone and Best director for Damien Chazelle, at the 32 the youngest recipient ever of the award. It also won Best Cinematography, Production Design, Score and Song.

Hotly-tipped Casey Affleck won Best Actor for MANCHESTER BY THE SEA, which also took Best Original Screenplay. Viola Davis was named Best Supporting Actress for FENCES and Mahershala Ali for MOONLIGHT.
