The Oscarceremonie of Sunday ended with a lot of commotion. Top favourite La La Land is going to end up with six Oscars to go home, but not the best movie. The musical with Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone could be a total of fourteen Oscars win, and the record of “Titanic” (1997), “Ben-Hur” (1959) and “The Lord of The Rings: The Return of The King” (2003) break. Eventually, the current winner of six awards, including two for the music: that of best director (Damien Chazelle), best actress (Emma Stone), best original score, best original song (both for “City of Stars”), production design, and cinematography. The 32-year-old Chazelle was the youngest director in the history of the Oscars to award the prize of best director win.

Almost had La La Land, a seventh Oscar to take home, since the last award, that of best film, first time erroneously was awarded to the musical, but that turned out to be a (painful) mistake. According to the media, was that also for a jamais vu: never in the past 88 years was an Oscar improperly awarded, which in turn recalls the fiasco of Miss Universe 2015, when Steve Harvey the wrong winner announced.

Actor Warren Beatty, who along with Faye Dunaway the winner announced, showed to the camera that in the envelope with the winner, a duplicate of the map which was that Emma Stone the Oscar for best actress won. “I opened the envelope and there was Emma Stone, ‘La La Land’, I wanted to no joke”, says the did confound actor, in which presenter Jimmy Kimmel put the blame on himself.

Eventually went to Moonlight with the award for best movie. The drama of Barry Jenkins, that eight times was nominated, won the Sunday three Oscars. Mahersala Ali received for his role in the statue for the best male supporting role.

Manchester By The Sea, won two statuettes in the waiting: one for Casey Affleck (Best Actor) and one for best adapted screenplay.
