The biggest night of Hollywood, the 89th Annual Academy Awards was held on Sunday, February 26, at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles.
The ceremony was hosted by Jimmy Kimmel who took quite a few jabs at the US President Donald Trump.
Front-runner “La La Land” ended the evening taking home six awards out of its 14 total nominations including best actress and best director while ‘Moonlight’ won three golden statuettes.
The ceremony ended with much drama – ‘La La Land’ was initially declared as the Best Picture, but it was soon announced that there was an error and the Best Picture Award was, in fact, won by ‘Moonlight’.
While confusion prevailed for a while, the makers of ‘La La Land’ graciously left the stage and made way for makers of ‘Moonlight’. Damien Chazelle won the Best Director Award for ‘La La Land’.
