And the Oscar goes to


The 89th Academy Awards took place on Sunday February 26th. The critically acclaimed La La Land received 14 nominations, but just who walked away with the awards on the night?

Having been nominated for 14 awards, La La Land finished the night with six successes, including Actress in a Leading Role, Original Score and Original Song. And for a brief moment they also picked up Best Picture.

However, for the first time in the Awards’ 89-year history, there was a shocking mix-up which led to it being announced by Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway that La La Land won the gong for Best Picture. Unfortunately stars and crew of La La Land had already accepted the award and were halfway through their speeches before La La Land producer Jordan Horowitz showed incredible integrity by holding up the winners’ card, revealing that Moonlight was, in fact, the Best Picture winner.

Although this year’s Awards will be a memorable one due to the slip up, the winners on the night walked away proud. But just who were the other winners taking home an Oscar?
