Academy Award Winners 2017: Complete List

The 89th Academy Awards took place on Sunday, with “Moonlight” taking home the top prize.

But not without some confusion. After Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway said on stage that “La La Land” won best picture, it was revealed that “Moonlight” had, in fact, won the prize in an embarrassing Oscar flub.

“Moonlight” also won prizes for best adapted screenplay and supporting actor for Mahershala Ali. It’s not as if “La La Land” went empty-handed, however. It won best actress for Emma Stone, cinematography, production design, original score, and original song.
