Oscars 2017: Full List of Winners

Must read

The 89th Academy Awards show was certainly one for the books. After it was all said and done, front-runner ‘La La Land’ won 6 out of its 14 total nominations including best actress and best director.

But the most shocking moment of the night went to ‘Moonlight’, which won best picture, after ‘La La Land’ was mistakenly announced.

“This is not a joke,” a producer from ‘La La Land’ said while standing on stage, correcting the big error. Then, the cast and crew of ‘Moonlight’ eventually took the stage and accepted the award.

In addition to the best picture win, ‘Moonlight’s’ Mahershala Ali took home his first Oscar for best actor in a supporting role and the film’s writers Barry Jenkins and Tarell Alvin McCraney won for best adapted screenplay.

‘Fences’ Viola Davis also took home her first Oscar for best supporting actress and got an enthusiastic standing ovation from the crowd.

“I became an artist and thank God I did because we are the only profession that celebrates what it means to live a life,” she exclaimed while breaking down as she thanked her parents, her sisters and her husband and child.

Casey Affleck and Emma Stone chose to pay homage to their fellow nominees. Affleck called Denzel Washington “one of the first people who taught me how to act.” Stone said, “it’s such an honor to stand beside you!” and added, “Ryan Gosling, thank you for making me laugh and being the greatest partner.”
