This year’s much anticipated [89th] Academy Awards finally went down last evening, Sunday, February 26, and as it turned out, Moonlight won three awards, including Best Picture, and La La Land won the most awards of the ceremony, with six, after receiving a record-tying 14 nominations.
La La Land had been [erroneously] announced as the Best Picture, before Moonlight was clarified to be the winner. Hacksaw Ridge and Manchester by the Sea won two awards each.
On Tuesday, January 24, nominations for this year’s edition of the Academy Awards were revealed and “La La Land” predictably dominated the Oscar nominations tally, with up to 14 spots, including actor, actress, director and picture.
This will be the 89th Academy Awards ceremony, which will be presented by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS).
