The 89th Academy Awards were yesterday and upsets and mess ups were galore! This year’s oscars had a very scope on it, more so than any Oscars before. Diversity was a big thing this year which was personally an amazing thing to see. Movies like Moonlight, Lion, Hidden Figures, Fences, Moana, Loving, Jackie and The Salesman were movies with diversity that all were nominated and some won this year during the oscars as opposed to last years nominated films that were criticized for a lack of diversity. The actors nominated for best actor, actress, supporting actor, and supporting actress were all amazing and all for them could have won this year. The mix up at the end though is probably what this Oscars will be remembered for sadly. Personally I laughed so hard when that happened but it kind of sucked when the whole cast of La La Land had to leave the stage and the whole cast of Moonlight came on stage to accept their award for best picture.
The movies that won awards this year goes as followed. Best Visual Effects went to The Jungle Book. Best film editing went to Hacksaw Ridge. Best Make up went to Suicide Squad, I felt like it should have went to Star Trek Beyond but oh well. Best Costume Design when to Fantastic Beast and Where to Find Them. Best Cinematography went to La La Land. Best Production Design went to La La Land as well. Best sound editing went to Arrival. Best sound mixing went Hacksaw Ridge. Best score and original song went to, yes you guessed it La La Land. Best Live action short film and best animated short film went to Sing and Piper. Best documentary went to OJ: Made in America, which if you have not seen you really should see. In my opinion OJ: Made in America is the best documentary I have ever seen. Best short documentary went to The White Helmets. Best Animated Movie went to Zootopia. Best foreign film went to The Salesman. Best adapted screenplay went to Moonlight. Best original screenplay went to Manchester by the Sea. Best Supporting actor and actress went to Mahershala Ali and Viola Davis respectively. Best actor and actress went to Casey Affleck and Emma Stone. Best director went to Damien Chazelle. And the most covenanted prize, best picture went to Moonlight.
