2017-Oscars-89th-Academy-Awards

Oscar Winners – Full List

The 89th Academy Awards ceremony, presented by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to honor the best films of 2016, is being held at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, California, right now. We will be covering all the results. The big winner of the night at no surprise to anyone is La La Land, who wins six of the fourteen nominated Academy Awards to include Best Director, Best Actress, Best Cinematography, Best Original Score, Best Original Song and Best Original Screenplay. There was an error in announcing Best Picture that erroneously announced La La Land the winner, but Moonlight won. Moonlight won three awards, Best Picture, Best Supporting Actor and Best Adapted Screenplay.  Manchester by the Sea took two awards, one for Best Original Screenplay and one Casey Affleck in a surprising win for Best Actor.

 Best Picture

via Summit Entertainment
  • Arrival
  • Fences
  • Hacksaw Ridge
  • Hell or High Water
  • Hidden Figures
  • La La Land
  • Lion
  • Manchester by the Sea
  • Moonlight  – *WINNER*

La La Land with fourteen nominations ties an Academy Awards record with Titanic and All About Eve. Titanic won eleven, including the awards for Best Picture and Best Director, tying Ben Hur (1959) for the most Oscars won by a single film. All About Eve won six, including Best Picture. All About Eve is the only film in Oscar history to receive four female acting nominations (Bette Davis and Anne Baxter as Best Actress, Celeste Holm and Thelma Ritter as Best Supporting Actress). La La Land is in good company and should be a shoe in to win if history is any indicator.

Barring some kind of split-vote situation, I think La La Land takes this pretty easily. The omnipresence of “City of Stars” throughout the film, both in song and score form, makes it mighty memorable, and voters will no doubt want to give the original musical an original song award.
