As Oscars 2017 make their way into the history books, there was no shortage of drama to add as a footnote. In one of the biggest snafus in Academy history, Best Picture winner was announced as “La La Land.” However, it was incorrectly named as the Best Picture, as the presenters had been given the wrong envelope. With a “La La Land” celebration in full bloom on stage, it was finally announced that the award actually went to “Moonlight.”

Apparently, the presenters, Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway had been handed a duplicate envelope of the one that went to Emma Stone for her win as best actress for “La La Land.”

And on to the other winners

Casey Affleck bagged the best actor award for his performance in the film “Manchester by the Sea.” It was Emma Stone’s first Oscar.

She has received high praise for several other movies she has been in, but her role in “Mis Dolan” was the clincher. She was also nominated for her supporting actress role in the film “Birdman” in 2014.

The support actor and actress awards went to Mahershala Ali for “Moonlight” and Viola Davis for the film “Fence.”

‘La La Land’ Wins Six Awards at Oscar 2017

Even though ‘La La Land’ was incorrectly named as the best picture, it did win six awards at Oscar 2017. Out of a record-tying nominations, the Lion’s Gate production design (Damien Chazella), Best Actress (Emma Stone), Best Production Design (David Wasco), Best Cinematographer (Linus Sandgren), Best Score (Justin Hurwitz) and Best Original Song (City of Stars.) Presenter Faye Dunaway wrongly read “La La Land” and as the members started to thank, it was announced that it was a mistake and “Moonlight” was the actual winner.

Casey Affleck won his first Oscar in best actor category for the film “Manchester by the Sea.” It is the 3rd film to have won multiple awards at the Oscar 2017.

Colleen Atwood won her 4th Oscar for the Best Costume Designer for the movie “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.” This is the first time a “Harry Potter” film won an Oscar.
