La La Land wins Best Picture, or wait, Moonlight wins Best Picture, and Jimmy Kimmel tweets Donald Trump.

The 2017 Academy Awards began with a dance party helmed by Justin Timberlake who opened the show with his nominated hit from Trolls, “Can’t Stop The Feeling”. From there on out, the Oscars rolled along smoothly with Jimmy Kimmel hosting and speeches getting political.

Kimmel knocked it out of the park, infusing his classic dry humor and funny elements from his show. “It’s been an amazing year for movies, black people saved NASA and white people saved jazz,” said Kimmel, poking fun at nominees Hidden Figures and La La Land. He spent the night making fun of Matt Damon in hilarious sketches, and Damon was in on the joke. He also pointed his finger at Meryl Streep several times, and asked her if her dress was an “Ivanka”.

In one of the most hilarious parts of his routine, Kimmel tweeted Donald Trump live in front of the world. “Meryl Says Hi” is what he wrote, referencing Streep’s poignant and much talked about political speech at the Golden Globes last month.

Kimmel also spent the night throwing candy at the audience, until it rained candy from the ceiling several times. Mel Gibson went for the Twizzlers and Octavia Spencer and Nicole Kidman battled it out for donuts.




Mahershala Ali won the first award for Best Supporting Actor for Moonlight, revealing that he and his wife had a daughter just four days ago. Viola Davis won for Best Supporting Actress for her performance in Fences. “I became an artist and thank God I did because we are the only profession who celebrates what it means to live a life,” said Davis.

Taraji P. Henson, Janelle Monae, and Octavia Spencer stood on stage together representing the film Hidden Figures. They introduced the real life Katherine Johnson, the character Henson portrayed in the film.

The night became political, with The Salesman winning Best Foreign Film. The director, Asghar Farhadi, boycotted the ceremony due to Trump’s travel ban. Instead, he sent Anousheh Ansari, the first Iranian woman to go into space. She read, “Filmmakers can break stereotypes of various nationalities and religions.” The White Helmets won Best Documentary Short, and the cinematographer was not allowed into the country to attend the ceremony. The filmmakers stated, “We hope this film and the attention helps move the world to act to stop the bloodshed in Syria.”

The most shocking part of the evening came when Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway misread the winner for Best Picture. First off, how exciting was it to see Bonnie and Clyde reunited on stage to announce Best Picture? Then Warren Beatty opens the envelope and ponders for a few long aching seconds, until he finally says, La La Land. Cue to applause, a standing ovation, and the full crew of La La Land standing on stage and giving a speech. Then, in the middle of the speech, Jordan Horowitz, the producer of La La Land, announces that Moonlight won. At first, it seemed like a “Your movie was good too!” kind of speech (ala Adele to Beyonce at the Grammys) but then he literally says again, “Moonlight won!” and shows the envelope to the camera. There wasn’t a single jaw in the audience that wasn’t dropped and Twitter went crazy. Barry Jenkins and the cast and crew of Moonlight took the stage to accept the award for Best Picture in a moment that will go down in history as one of the most memorable and shocking events at the Academy Awards.

Moonlight is the first openly gay film to win Best Picture at the Academy Awards, and a film that is entirely made and cast by African Americans.
