Who won best picture?
27 February 2017 | by See all my reviews

Justin Timberlake kicked the show off with a song and Jimmy Kimmel took over hosting duties by continuing his feud with Matt Damon. Kimmel had a decent opening with a few barbs at the new president of the USA.

After the controversy last year regarding diversity, two black actors won in the best support category, one of them being a Muslim which would had made Trump happy.

Kevin O'Connell won an Oscar for best sound mixing for Hacksaw Ridge. It was his first victory in 21 attempts.

Mel Gibson got rehabilitated of sorts as his Australian shot film, Hacksaw Ridge won 2 Oscars.

Damien Chazelle became the youngest ever best director winner as La La Land won 6 Oscars or was it 7?

The final award of Best Picture saw two legends being wheeled out, Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway. It would be a shame that they only get known for this mix up that was not their fault. Next year the Oscars need to pick new auditors as PriceWaterhouseCoopers should be sacked.

Moonlight was the best picture winner over the slightly superior and wrongly announced La La Land but really it was not a vintage year for the Oscars but the awards were spread out which is always nice.
