#Oscars 2017: worst blunder, but best host!

Academy Awards 2017 aka The Oscars were last night, and was it something! The show hosted by Jimmy Kimmel was spectacular. But the biggest talk of the night is the blunder about wrong film getting announced for best picture. Warren Beatty and Faye Dunnaway announced La La Land as the winner, by mistake, instead of Moonlight. Here's a video:

As much as this sucks, we have to say that it was handled very well. Kudos to Warren, Jimmy and the La La Land team as well. It sucks for Team Moonlight, that they didn't get there moment, but at least they walk away with the award. But it sucks for the team La La Land the most, I guess. Since they were the ones who got embarrassed, and walk away without an award. But stuff happens, we need to get over it. Both La La Land and Moonlight are wonderful films in their own right and worthy of the oscar (hence the nominations). But only one can walk away with the award. This night, it was Moonlight. Congratulations to Barry Jenkins and the entire team.

The other well deserved award was best Supporting Actor to Mahershala Ali, for his amazing performance in MOONLIGHT. And so was Best Actress to Viola Davis for FENCES, great job. Although the best actor award for both male & female may have surprised some people, I think both Casey Affleck, who's still severely underrated, and Emma Stone had proved themselves worthy by their amazing performances on there individual films. Kenneth Loggerman very well deservedly won the best original screenplay award for MANCHESTER BY THE SEA. And Damien Chazelle's win as best director for LA LA LAND, was perfect. He did create a beautiful film after all!

The competition for Documentary was really hard this year, and I'm lil surprised that Ava Duvernay's 13th or I'M NOT YOUR NEGRO, didn't win.  No award for LION either, which I expected to be strong candidate for Best adapted screenplay. There were few other shockers, but all in all, it was a good night.

But the best part of the night was Jimmy Kimmel. His hosting was just wonderful. He was funny, he was political, he was cool, and he was awesome. Even with the biggest blunder, he did his best to handle. The bit with tourists was pretty cool. And of course with Jimmy, you can expect food, although his mom didn't make it this time. It was candies and bagels etc etc. His hosting was a pleasure for the stars, the room audience and us the TV audience too. It was just great, and hopefully we see him again & again!
