Oscars 2017 – and the winners are…

The 89th Academy Awards took place in Los Angeles last night, with the glittering ceremony marred by an epic mistake that saw the wrong film given the Best Picture award.

La La Land was originally announced as winner by actor Warren Beatty, before producers had to step in to correct him as Moonlight actually won the award.

There was widespread shock in the audience as host Jimmy Kimmel tried to explain the gaffe.

Oscars producers had to step in on stage to reveal the mistake, forcing the La La Land producers to hand over the gong to the Moonlighting producers.

Bonnie and Clyde stars Beatty and Faye Dunaway announced La La Land had taken the best picture prize until the film’s producer Fred Berger said: “This is not a joke. Moonlight is best picture,” and showed the camera the card that revealed the winner.

Musical La La Land nevertheless won six Oscars, including best director and best actress. Moonlight also won adapted screenplay and best supporting actor.

Manchester by the Sea won two awards – one of them was for best original screenplay.
