Did you watch the Academy Awards last night?
If so, you might still be a bit confused!
Yes…the movie, Moonlight won the best picture!
According to CNN- Entertainment:
In one of the strangest moments in Oscars history, “La La Land” was announced as the winner — but that was wrong. After giving their acceptance speech, the producers of “La La Land” took the mic and said they actually lost the award to “Moonlight.”
“This is not a joke.’Moonlight’ has won Best Picture.”
How difficult for everyone. I feel sorry for the “La La Land” cast and the “Moonlight” cast. Thank goodness this kind of mistake does not happen often!!
So…the winners are:
- Moonlight is the best picture
- Emma Stone won best actress of “La La Land”
- Casey Affleck won best actor for Manchester by the Sea
- Supporting Actor: Mahershala Ali for Moonight
- Supporting Actress: Viola Davis, for Fences
- Both Original Song and Score went to La La Land
I thought that Jimmy Kimmel did a great job as the host of the evening. I loved the candy coming from the ceiling and the busload of tourists!!
I had the opportunity to watch the Academy Awards on TV with my family. They invited me to their home to share the fun.
My grandkids set up a party and even cooked and set-up the snacks for the evening. They are 10 so it was a big deal ! It made for a special event!
So…please understand that this blog is rather short tonight. I couldn’t get home until the show was over!!
Do you remember Clay Aiken singing Fantasy on Season 3 of American Idol? It was a catchy song from the group.
Clay was a guest on the show and sang with the Top Four contestants.
What a fun memory!
Clay…we miss you! A tweet would make us feel so much better!
