Oscars 2017: The Winners

Oscars 2017: The Winners

We round up the full list of winners at this year’s Academy Awards.

After a night mired by controversy and outstanding musical performances, we finally know who this year’s Oscars have been awarded to. Here’s the full list of this year’s Academy Award recipients:

  • Best picture: Moonlight
  • Best actress: Emma Stone – La La Land
  • Best actor: Manchester by the Sea
  • Best supporting actress: Viola Davis – Fences
  • Best supporting actor: Mahershala Ali – Moonlight
  • Best director: La La Land – Damien Chazelle
  • Best original screenplay: Manchester by the Sea – Kenneth Lonergan
  • Best adapted screenplay: Moonlight – Barry Jenkins and Tarell Alvin McCraney
  • Best original score: La La Land – Justin Hurwitz
  • Best original song: La La Land – City of Stars by Justin Hurwitz, Benj Pasek and Justin Paul
  • Best cinematography: La La Land – Linus Sandgren
  • Best foreign language film: The Salesman – Iran
  • Best costume design: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them – Colleen Atwood

  • Best film editing: Hacksaw Ridge – John Gilbert
  • Best documentary short: The White Helmets – Orlando von Einsiedel and Joanna Natasegara
  • Best live action short: Sing – Kristof Deak and Anna Udvardy

Of course, it wouldn’t be The Oscars without Hollywood making headlines, the most notable of which being Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway incorrectly announcing La La Land as the winner of the coveted Best Picture award, leaving the cast and crew to pile onto to the stage, only to be told moments later that the Oscar was actually awarded to Moonlight. Talk about awkward? If you missed the mortifying (and quite hilarious) moment, take a watch below – and try not to cringe!

Of course, we shouldn’t feel too bad for La La Land, as they did come away as the big winners of the night, with the film scoring six awards, including Emma Stone’s for Best Actress, Best Original Score, Best Director and the Best Original Score / Best Original Song combo.

On a slightly more bizarre note (no, really), Lion actress Nicole Kidman has also become quite the talking point, after her rather strange clapping – if you can call it that. We’re more likely to call it ‘terrifying’, rather than strange, but in case you missed it above, here’s another look at Nicole ‘Clap’man.

Nicole Kidman’s clapping stole the show at this year’s Oscars.

Freaky, right?
