The 2017 Oscar Winners: ‘Moonlight’ Wins Best Picture in Shocking Ending

Congratulations to all the winners at the 89th Academy Awards!

La La Land was the most-honored of the night, as expected, with six wins. But there were definitely some surprises… like La La Land not winning even more. And the shocker that it was wrongly announced as Best Picture. Instead it was Moonlight that won the top award.

There were also many records broken. Damien Chazelle (La La Land) is now the youngest winner of the Best Directing Oscar, at age 32. O.J.: Made in America became the longest movie to win an Oscar at 467 minutes. Mahershala Ali is the first Muslim to win an acting Oscar. Soundman Kevin O’Connell finally won with his 21st nomination.

But Moonlight — which also took home awards for Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Supporting Actor — winning Best Picture in a twist ending is going to go down as one of the most shocking Oscar moments ever.
