Academy Awards 2017: Winners List

All of Hollywood was focused on the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles on Sunday as Jimmy Kimmel hosted the Academy Awards.

The most notable moment of the night came at the end of the show as the Best Picture winner was announced incorrectly as La La Land, which in fact was quickly corrected to Moonlight.

The accounting firm entrusted with counting the Academy Award votes and maintaining the secrecy of the winners PricewaterhouseCoopers took responsibility for the on stage mix up and issued a statement saying “We sincerely apologize to Moonlight, La La Land, Warren Beatty, Faye Dunaway, and Oscar viewers for the error that was made during the award announcement for Best Picture. The presenters had mistakenly been given the wrong category envelope and when discovered, was immediately corrected. We are currently investigating how this could have happened, and deeply regret that this occurred. We appreciate the grace with which the nominees, the Academy, ABC, and Jimmy Kimmel handled the situation.

Best Picture winner Moonlight also won two other Oscars for supporting actor and adapted screenplay. La La Land lead the nominations with 14 and walked away with 6 Oscars.
