Moonlight, Casey Affleck and Emma Stone Win Top Honors At Oscars 2017!! Check out the Complete List!!!

the-oscars-2017-betting-odds

And that’s a wrap, right with a proper twist at the end. It’s safe to say that 2017 has delivered one of the all-time Oscar ceremonies, if only out of sheer bizarre entertainment value. Self-indulged? You bet. Absurd? Oh, yes. So long that you began contemplating the very essence of time? You know it. But this one had memorable moments and was low on severely awkward moments which, in my book, counts as a big win, and it doesn’t hurt that a lot of the best movies nominated got recognized here.

For the record, La La Land swept up six Oscars over the night, while Moonlight grabbed three, and Hacksaw Ridge and Manchester by the Sea tied with two each. This is not exactly the time to continue talking about my gripes with La La Land, especially considering the rug that the creative team just had pulled out from under them. A more worthy discussion point would be Arrival‘s surprise snag in technical or, perhaps, the fact that Suicide Squad has an Oscar and Martin Scorsese‘s Silence does not.

The big news is Moonlight‘s win, which would now firmly place it as the best film to ever win an Academy Award, by quite some margin. And I must say, I thought Jimmy Kimmel did quite well, despite the fact that the entire show was essentially programmed exactly like his show. Check out all the winners below:
