The 2017 Academy Awards, popularly called the Oscars, was held at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles California. The Awards are usually held to honour the most deserving movies, cast and crew of the preceding year.
In a totally different twist to the end of the night and in a never-before-seen fashion, the wrong winners were called for Best Picture, at the Awards. Announcers Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway called the Best Picture award for La La Land, when in fact, the Award was won by Moonlight (which had already picked an award earlier in the night for Best Supporting Male Actor – Mahershala Ali). It took the intervention of one of the two accountants who tallied the votes and therefore, knew the winners before tonight.
Viola Davis also took home the Award for Best Supporting Actress after being nominated three times, the highest for an African- American woman in the history of the awards. And now, Ms Davis has the full deck: she is the only woman to have won an Oscar, an Emmy, a Tony, a Golden Globe, a SAG, and a BAFTA award. Because excellence.
