In Hollywood, CA on February 27th, the 89th Academy Awards show was premiered. Also known as the Oscars, the event was hosted by Jimmy Kimmel. Many awards that night were given to the most anticipated screenplays.

 

The most memorable part of the show according to social media was the mistake of announcing the award for Best Picture to La La Land instead of the actual winner, Moonlight. This mishap was made by Warren Beatty handing Faye Dunaway the wrong envelope with a different title.

 

Hope from many fans of Lin-Manuel Miranda soon dropped as he did not win the nomination for best song. If attained, he would be one of the few people to achieve an EGOT (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony). Miranda was nominated for best song with “How Far I’ll Go” from Moana, but lost against La La Land with the song “City of Stars.”

 

New records at this years Oscar’s were broken. Mahershala Ali was the first muslim man to win an Oscar as the best supporting actor in the film “Moonlight.” Additionally, Viola Davis became the first black person, no matter the gender, to win an Oscar, Emmy, and Tony in competitive fields.
This night was groundbreaking for many fans of major film productions. From La La Land winning six out of 14 nominations, to political fashion statements, the 89th Academy Awards was very successful for all films.
