    Moonlight has wins Best Picture at the 89th Academy Awards

    Feb 27, LA: Moonlight has won Best Picture at the Oscars – but before that, La La Land was announced as the winner by mistake. 

    The cast and crew of La La Land were already on the stage to give their acceptance speech, when one of the producers, holding the envelope up to the camera, said that Moolight had actually won the award.

    Actress Faye Dunaway, however, quickly read the name 'La La Land.Oscars host Jimmy Kimmel joked following the blunder: “I knew I would screw this show up. I really did.”

     "La La Land" was the top nominee, notching a record-tying 14 nominations. "Moonlight" and "Arrival" followed with eight nods each.

    Already, Mahershala Ali won for his role in 'Moonlight.' His win comes after back-to-back years in which  the academy did not recognize any nonwhite actors. This year, each of the four acting categories feature at least one nominee of color.
