Oscar Outcome


On February 26th, the 89th annual Academy Awards took place at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, Los Angeles. The award show was hosted by Jimmy Kimmel. The ceremony went relatively smoothly until the end when Warren Beatty announced the best picture winner. He apparently picked up the wrong card and announced La La Land as the best picture. After the cast and crew went on stage, people rushed to inform the audience that Moonlight had actually won best picture. The producers for La La Land were polite and handed the Oscars over to the Moonlight crew. Other than that the ceremony went well. It was filled with outstanding performances by John Legend and Justin Timberlake.
