Wow a "La La" Oscars? No wait a minute it's a mistake "Moonlight" wins best picture!
3 March 2017 | by blanbrnSee all my reviews

This Oscars and Academy Awards the 89th being correct was much different and ended with a surprise with the wrong best picture winner being announced something that we had never seen! Still the show tried to be funny with host Jimmy Kimmel as he took jabs at President Trump and Jimmy even introduced real people to the crowd of stars even one being an ex convict! And it was neat and nice for how the sky rained down with candy and donuts for the stars to eat! As expected the musical "La La Land" took home a lot of awards even earning cute and attractive red head Emma Stone her first Oscar as she won for best actress. And Viola Davis rightfully won best supporting actress for her strong performance in "Fences", yet Denzel was upset in the best actor race by Casey Affleck who won for "Manchester by the Sea". Now when the best picture was announced by Warren it was "La La Land" no wait a minute a mistake "Moonlight" wins best picture how did that happen! First time in the history did the academy just give out the wrong card, or was it a joke who knows!? Overall a mediocre Oscars that was even dampened more by the mistake at the end calling the best picture wrong let's hope it never happens again.
