La La Land, Moonlight, big winners
Emma Stone’s interview after the Oscars
Too bad I wasn’t able to catch the Oscars completely. I only managed to catch the first hour. Hence, I missed all the commotion where the presenters for Best Picture made a boo-boo and everyone thought it was a done deal with producers of La La Land grabbing the biggest honour, Best Picture. Oh well, this reminded me of the Miss Universe incident last year.
La La Land had 14 Oscars nomination and left with 6 awards. Moonlight grabbed three Oscars including Best Picture and Best Actor in a Supporting Role. So it wasn’t a dominant win for La La Land and well balanced for both movies.
For me, I’m happy that La La Land won both for Music Score and Original Song. Well deserved, indeed 😀
I was impressed with Jimmy Kimmel as the host for the Oscars. He didn’t make the audience feel awkward and his jokes and humourous puns were politically driven and the audience didn’t mind that at all. He was definitely better than Ellen DeGeneres as a host.
Below are the lists of winners from today’s Oscars.
Denzel Washington in “Fences”
Michael Shannon in “Nocturnal Animals”
Meryl Streep in “Florence Foster Jenkins”
Michelle Williams in “Manchester by the Sea”
“Moonlight” – Barry Jenkins
“The White Helmets” (WINNER)
ANIMATED SHORT FILM
“13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi”
What a mess with the presenters when Faye Dunaway announced the wrong winner for Best Picture, calling it out producers of La La Land instead of Moonlight’s. Congratulations to the Moonlight and though I wanted La La Land to win the big award, you can’t have them all.
Emma Stone was a clear winner for her role as Mia in La La Land. She also grabbed awards in the same category in Golden Globe and SAG awards
A well deserved win for Damien Chazelle for Directing in “La La Land”. He was also nominated for his Directing role in Whiplash. He is also the youngest director to win an Oscar. Awesome!!
Mahershala Ali won Actor in a Supporting Role for “Moonlight”
Justin Timberlake opened the show with belting a number “Can’t Stop The Feeling” from Trolls
