Oscars promotional graphic

The 89th annual Academy Awards ceremony was held on Sunday, February 26, 2017, at the Dolby Theatre® at Hollywood & Highland Center® in Hollywood. It was hosted by comedian, talk show host, and actor Jimmy Kimmel.

As usual, the ceremony was longer than any of the nominated movies (save for the Documentary Feature winner, which clocked in at over seven hours), with the final credits rolling after three hours and forty five minutes. The event had a twist ending, however, as Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway (stars of Bonnie and Clyde, which opened 50 years ago) announced that the winner of the Best Picture Oscar was La La Land, but the acceptance speeches were interrupted by the news that the actual winner was Moonlight.

Apparently, a duplicate envelope was opened which listed Emma Stone's Best Actress award for La La Land, and Dunaway read off her movie's title as the winner of Best Picture. This high-profile gaffe will be embarrassing for the Academy and for Price Waterhouse Coopers, who issued an apology for the problem. While the media and social media is going to be all stirred up about it for a while, in the grand scheme of things, the mistake was corrected quickly and everyone involved, including those from La La Land, handled it gracefully on live television.

While the most memorable elements of Kimmel's part of the show might have been the theater candy air drops and parading people from a tour bus through the front row, there were some good speeches by the winners, and the performance by Auli'i Cravalho of a song from Moana, which was nominated for best animated feature film, was the highlight (sorry Justin Timberlake and John Legend).

I think it suck when "La la Land" was declared the winner and because someone was sleeping on the job, someone came out and announce that 'Moonlight" was the real. I love both movies, but I didn't like the outcome. I got a suggestion, how about the Academy declare both movies a winner. make it a tie. When some one came out and declare "Moonlight " the winner, the cast of "La La Land" was ,kick off the stage. they should stay on stage as a force of unity. But what I saw last Sunday night really saddens me.
