There has always been something special about the movies - the fame, the hype, the glitter, the pompous and all that...so a blunder that originally announced the wrong movie, La La Land as Best Picture, over the real winner, Moonlight, should not be taken as any conspiracy event, but just as another Hollywood moment - the life and times of Tinseltown that contributes to making the movies, even more special.
Aging actors Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway were apparently handed a wrong envelope for Best Actress, Emma Stone - La La Land, instead of the rightful red envelope that named Moonlight as this year's Best Picture. Accounting giant PriceWaterhouseCooper has apologized for the mix up.
After an acceptance speech by the La La Land cast, the mistake was corrected with the cast of La La Land making the announced correction with great grace and decorum that actors reserved for one another. Moonlight, exhibiting a profound surprise, accepted the Oscar for Best Picture adding to yet another dreamy and fantastic Hollywood moment.
The big winners at the Oscars included:
Emma Stone - Best Actress, La La Land.
Casey Afflect - Best Actor, Manchester by the Sea.
Viola Davis - Best Supporting Actress, Fences.
Mashershala Ali - Best Supporting Actor, Moonlight.
The Salesman - Best Foreign Language Film.
Moonlight - Best Picture.
