89th Academy Awards – La La Land Wins Best Picture, Wait a Minute…

For the 89th time this year, the best of Hollywood gets together again to award the most stunning pictures and performances, both behind and in front of the camera. Stay up with us and follow the live updates!



That is pretty embarrassing. Warren Beatty misread the envelope. So, after the cast of La La Land took the stage and gave their speeches, it turned out that the real winner was Moonlight. Everyone seems quite confused. Steve Harvey, is that you?


And here comes the highest point of the night: which movie will win the Best Picture category? La La Land, Hacksaw Ridge, Moonlight, Manchester by the Sea, Lion, Hidden Figures, Fences, Arrival and Hell or High Water were up to take the statue. And the Oscar goes to La La Land! (Not so surprising after the happenings of the past hour…)


It was a very close call: Natalie Portman in Jackie and Emma Stone in La La Land gave probably the two most anticipated performances of last year. “Here’s to the ones who dream” – the winner is Emma Stone!


Best Actor in a leading role looked very promising for Denzel Washington, but in the end, Casey Affleck managed to gain the Academy’s recognition! Well played!


In the category of Best Director we could cheer for Mel Gibson – Hacksaw Ridge, Damien Chazelle – La La Land, Barry Jenkins – Moonlight, Kenneth Lonergan – Manchester by the Sea or Denis Villeneueve – Arrival. Damien Chazelle takes the statue as youngest director ever accomplish such an achievement!


The Arrival, Lion, Moonlight, Fences and Hidden Figures are up for the Best Adopted Screenplay. And the Oscar goes to Moonlight!


La La Land takes two music related awards: Best Original Score and Best Original Song both goest to La La Land!


John Legend takes the stage, what a performance!


The whole country is in ecstasy: Kristóf Deák’s short movie Sing wins Best Live Action Short Movie! What a thrill, this is incredible!!!!!


Best Editing goes to Mel Gibson’s brilliant film Hacksaw Ridge! Gibson returned to the screen with an epic war movie that is also nominated for Best Picture.


Visual effects play a significant role in today’s cinematography. The award in the category of creating magic on the screen is Jungle Book!


And the statue for Best Foreign Film goes to Iranian drama The Salesman. By this point, we can say that anyone who gets a chance to speak make some comments about the ongoing political controversies of the US.


Here we are: we are truly, truly happy to see Viola Davis taking her first Academy Awards! Her performance in Fences was simply impeccable!


Arts connect us, regardless of religion, race or location. A very moving speech was delivered by Academy president Cheryl Boone-Isaacs.


The first awards of the night is Best Supporting Actor. And the Oscar goes to Mahershala Ali, from the move Moonlight! We were cheering so much for Dev Patel for his amazing performance in Lion, but of course, Mahershala Ali was just as deservedly of the golden statue.


This night won’t be missing out on political comments, either. Jimmy Kimmel’s – quite long – monologue includes several funny remarks on President Trump.


Can’t stop the feeling! – Justin Timberlake knows how to start the night!
