Oscars 2017: Winners

The biggest night in Hollywood finally arrived, with the 89th Academy Awards taking place last night at the legendary Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, Los Angeles.

The evening’s host, Jimmy Kimmel, ensured there were lots of laughs throughout the evening, as well as parachutes filled with candy dropping from the ceiling of the theatre and into the hands of the hungry actors and actresses below.

The evening was not without controversy, however.

When it came to the biggest moment of the night, the announcement of the Best Picture winner, the wrong winner was announced at first!

Veteran actors, Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway, presented the award for Best Picture, but when it came to reading the name on the card, they received Emma Stone’s Best Actress card, instead of the card for Best Picture, and wrongfully announced ‘La La Land’ as Best Picture, when, in fact, it was ‘Moonlight’ that won Best Picture.

Luckily, the producers of ‘La La Land’ were gracious about the error, and invited the producers of ‘Moonlight’ to accept their award.

So, without further ado, here are the winners of this year’s Academy Awards:
