Oscars 2017: seven talking points

Oscars 2017: seven talking points
From Mahershala Ali to Janet Patterson - Screen runs through some of the buzz topics from last night’s Academy Awards.Best Picture

The presentation of best picture at the Academy Awards is arguably the biggest single moment in Hollywood’s calendar, making it all the more remarkable that through a clumsy series of envelope errors, the ceremony managed to temporarily crown La La Land before that film’s producer Jordan Horowitz announced that Moonlight was in fact the winner. Accounting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers has since taken the blame.

Echoing the notorious blunder at the 2015 Miss Universe pageant – when presenter Steve Harvey announced the wrong winner (which Oscars host Jimmy Kimmel alluded to by joking “personally, I blame Steve Harvey for this”) – the magnitude of the blunder is unparralleled in Oscar terms but not entirely without precedent.

At the 1934 Oscars Frank Capra took to stage thinking he had won best director for Lady For A Day when he heard

89th Oscar Winners – Moonlight Takes Home Best Picture

In one of the biggest shocks in Academy Awards history, the final award of the night, Best Picture, was mistakenly announced.

Moonlight won best picture at the 89th Oscars after La La Land was erroneously reported announced as the winner.

Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway read La La Land right after Emma Stone won best actress for her role in the modern-day musical. After the cast took the stage, a producer for La La Land corrected things and said, “[Actually] ‘Moonlight’ is the winner … this is not a joke.”

The La Times exclusively spoke to best picture presenter Warren Beatty backstage after the history-making mistake that briefly awarded La La Land the honor instead of rightful winner Moonlight and the legendary director explained what happened onstage.

“I looked down at the card and thought, ‘This is very strange, because it says best actress.’ Maybe there was a misprint. I don’t know what happened.

2017 Oscars Backstage: Best Picture Flub Leads Chatter From Emma Stone, Barry Jenkins and More

2017 Oscars Backstage: Best Picture Flub Leads Chatter From Emma Stone, Barry Jenkins and More
Hollywood’s biggest night — and the glitzy, glam-filled capper of the annual awards season — unfolded Sunday at Hollywood & Highland’s Dolby Theatre, where the entertainment industry’s biggest and brightest turned out en masse to celebrate (and potentially walk away with a statuette of their very own). By the time Oscar Sunday bowed (a little dark, a touch rainy) there was still plenty left up in the air (though few could predict the wild turn the ceremony eventually took in its final moments).

Ultimately, big nominee “La La Land” walked away with 6 Oscars — including Best Actress and Best Director — though there’s no question the biggest story of the night (of the year? of the Oscars ever?) was an announcing flub from Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway, who initially announced that “La La Land” had won Best Picture, before issuing a correction that the accolade actually belonged to Barry Jenkins’ “Moonlight.

Oscars 2017: 'Moonlight,' 'La La Land' Dominate at Shocking Ceremony
There isn't a screenwriter in Hollywood who could have written a twist that's both as shocking and joyous as the end of the 2017 Oscars. As the producers of La La Land were giving acceptance speeches for what they thought was a Best Picture win, the film's producers learned that they had in fact lost – to Moonlight. "Personally, I blame Steve Harvey for this," quipped host Jimmy Kimmel as the cast and crew of Moonlight ascended the stage for what turned out to be a peaceful transition of power.

From Viola Davis’ Victory to Moonlight’s Stunning Triumph, Diversity Won at This Year’s Oscars
Just two years after the #OscarsSoWhite controversy highlighted the Academy Awards’ diversity problems, Sunday’s ceremony saw a varied slate of winners and nominees — concluding with an upset win for Best Picture, with Moonlight triumphing over La La Land.

And in a frequently political show, diversity was a topic addressed by stars onstage and around the world.

Mahershala Ali, the first winner of the night, was also the first Muslim in the Academy’s history to win the Best Supporting Actor award. He took home the trophy for his role in Moonlight.

Faye Dunaway had announced the musical as the winner at the Dolby Theatre after co-presenter Warren Beatty, who opened the envelope and appeared lost for words, handed it to his Bonnie And Clyde co-star.

As chaos reigned, Beatty walked up to the microphone and explained the envelope read, “Emma Stone, La La Land”.

The actress had already received her best actress Oscar in one of the key awards of the night alongside Casey Affleck’s triumph in the best actor category for Manchester By The Sea.

La La Land won six Oscars on the night led by Stone and Damien Chazelle, who became the youngest person to win the best directing Oscar. The film started the night on a joint-record 14 nominations.

my picks for tonight’s 89th Academy Awards (the Oscars for 2016’s films)

Update:

Winners are now indicated. I correctly guessed 11 out of the 24 categories, which is slightly better than last year, when I guessed 10 out of 24.

Previous 02.26.17:

I’ve now seen as many of the nominated films as I will be able to before tonight’s ceremony, and here finally are my educated guesses about who will take home each award — projected winners are Xed at the lefthand side. Keep in mind: those Xes don’t represent whom I think should win Oscars but whom I think will win, based on what little I can grasp about how the Academy thinks. I’ve also noted which nominees I think should win. Kindly note that this is not necessarily my take on who did the best performance/writing/FX/whatever of the year, but whom I think is best among the nominees.

La La Land,” as expected, dominated the Oscar crafts, with Damien Chazelle’s musical valentine taking four awards for cinematography, production design, score, and original song. Still, it was predicted to win at least three more.

And it was a great night for Disney and its trio of winners: the zeitgeist-grabbing “Zootopia” (animated feature), Disney Animation’s third Oscar in four years, which trumpeted tolerance ahead of the Presidential election; Alan Barillaro’s fine-feathered “Piper” (animated short), Pixar’s R&D sculpting project that ended its 15-year shorts drought; and Jon Favreau’s “The Jungle Book” (VFX), which innovated photographic-based realism. The award was shared by production VFX supervisor Rob Legato, Mpc’s VFX supervisor Adam Valdez, Weta Digital’s VFX supervisor Dan Lemmon, and Andrew R. Jones, the animation supervisor.

From Passionate Speeches to Tweeting at Trump, Here’s All the Political Moments from the Oscars
As much as the 89th annual Academy Awards were about the celebrities and the fashion, it was also about politics.

From winners to presenters to host Jimmy Kimmel, there were plenty of President Donald Trump-centric moments — and many happened without even saying his name. The broadcast hit on controversial topics including the immigration ban executive order, fake news and a member of Trump’s cabinet.

Here are all the political mentions during Sunday’s show (so far):

Suicide Squad Is Now an Oscar Winner

Suicide Squad Is Now an Oscar Winner
To say the least, Suicide Squad wound up being a very divisive movie. At least among fans. The general consensus from critics was that the movie missed the mark, but that didn't stop the movie from finding a tremendous amount of success. Now, believe it or not, Suicide Squad can add Academy Award winner to its list of accomplishments.

Suicide Squad took home the Oscar for Makeup and Hairstyling at the 89th annual Academy Awards. Director David Ayer's movie about DC Comics' bad guys turned kind of good beat out A Man Called Love and Star Trek Beyond for the award. Alessandro Bertolazzi, Giorgio Gregorini and Christopher Nelson were on hand to accept that award during the ceremony and seemed quite thrilled to be bringing home the statue. Who could blame them?

Oscar Week 2017: Makeup and Hairstyling Symposium

By Gary Salem

Oscar Week celebrated three exceptional nominees at the annual Makeup & Hairstyling Symposium: “A Man Called Ove,” “Star Trek Beyond” and “Suicide Squad.” Branch governor and longtime host Leonard Engelman started the event with a favorite story about 20th Century Fox lobbying the Academy to award John Chambers with an honorary Oscar for “Planet of the Apes” in 1968. He was joined by fellow governors Kathryn Blondell and Lois Burwell in welcoming the nominees and giving an inside look at the bake-off and nomination process.

Burwell said the branch meets twice a year to discuss the films that members think should be viewed in a theater and considered for seven finalists. Branch members also communicate throughout the year to bring attention to outstanding work. The seven finalists are usually narrowed down to three nominees but there have been years with two and four nominees.

Oscars 2017: Full list of winners – as they happen
Sunday’s 89th Academy Awards are underway at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.

Barry Jenkins and Tarell Alvin McCraney took to the stage at the Dolby Theatre in a popular adapted screenplay win for Moonlight as the drama earned its second win of the night.

Moments earlier Kenneth Lonergan accepted the original screenplay award for Manchester By The Sea in the film’s first prize. Ben Affleck and Matt Damon – winners of this award for Good Will Hunting 19 years ago – presented the honour to Lonergan. Damon was a producer on the film.

Meryl Streep used her Oscar show platform to pay subtle homage to the unifying power of film when she joined Javier Bardem on stage at the Dolby Theatre to present the cinematography award.

Truth is hard to reveal,” Streep said, “but when it happens on the movie screen filmgoers no matter where they are from, feel their hearts soar.”

Unused Harley Quinn Costume Revealed in Suicide Squad Set Photo
Love or hate Suicide Squad, most audiences adored Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn. So much so, in fact, that she is getting her own spin-off movie called Gotham City Sirens. This next adventure will likely show Daddy's Little Monster in a variety of getups, including her Clown Jester costume, which was only briefly seen in Suicide Squad. But it appears the actress had a couple other outfit changes that got nixed from the initial mix in that first movie.

A new behind-the-scenes photo arrives today from Chinatimes courtesy of Twitter. And it offers a glimpse at one of the many rumored deleted scenes that didn't make the cut when it came time to release the Blu-ray. This image shows Harley in what appears to be a Prom dress in her signature red and blue colors. This is the quote that came tagged with the image.
