2017 Oscar Winners

February 26, 2017

The 89th Oscars were held on Sunday, February 26, 2017, at the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood, hosted by Jimmy Kimmel and were televised live on ABC.

La La Land took home half (actually 6, when the real Best Picture Oscar winner was announced) of the 14 Oscars it was nominated for. In addition to winning the 2017 Oscar for Best Picture, La La Land won the Oscars for Best Actress (Emma Stone), Best Original Score, Best Production Design, Best Sound Editing, Best Cinematography and Best Song (City Of Stars).

La La Land is still in theaters. OOPS….

Moonlight won Best Picture.  Warren Beatty was given the wrong envelope and Moonlight the Oscar for Best Picture. Moonlight is a marginal movie, seemingly made by a bunch of high school seniors. Highly, highly overrated and seemingly given an Oscar by Academy voters because they feel as if they are so full of white guilt. The movie will not stand the test of time. One of the absolute worst Best Picture Winners of all time. A Best Picture Oscar winner that will be forgotten faster than the winner of last year’s Best Picture Oscars, Spotlight.

Shut completely out of the major Oscars race this year, and not surprisingly, Martin Scorsese’s box office stinkeroo Silence.

Oscar voters showered the musical “La La Land” with 14 nominations today, a tie with “Titanic” and “All About Eve” for the most in Academy Award history. There were surprises.

“Arrival,” starring Amy Adams as a linguist tasked with communicating with aliens, emerged as one of the most-honored films, with 8 nominations, including Best Picture and Best Director, but Amy Adams failed to receive a nod for Best Actress. Instead, in a seeming nod to political correctness – a need for a black nominee in each of the four acting categories – her slot went to the black newcomer Ruth Negga for her performance in the box office bomb “Loving.”

Meryl Streep received her 20th Oscar nomination for playing the sweetly delusional lead character in “Florence Foster Jenkins.”

Biggest surprise nominees: Ruth Negga, Best Actress; Viggo Mortensen, Captain Fantastic; Michael Shannon, Nocturnal Animals and Octavia Spencer, Hidden Figures.

For the first time in television history, the academy did not unveil its nominations at a news conference attended by entertainment journalists. Instead, reporters were bypassed — no chance for academy officials to be peppered with uncomfortable questions that way — and the nominations read without an audience in a presentation broadcast on Oscars.com, “Good Morning America” and other platforms.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is a global community of more than 7,000 of the most accomplished artists, filmmakers and executives working in film.  In addition to celebrating and recognizing excellence in filmmaking through the Oscars, the Academy supports a wide range of initiatives to promote the art and science of the movies, including public programming, educational outreach and the upcoming Academy Museum of Motion Pictures, which is under construction in Los Angeles.
