Did you watch the 2017 Oscars on Sunday? Hosted by Jimmy Kimmel who did a great job for his first time. Kimmel’s Oscar monologue started off political but he also kept the awards show fun by including the tour bus participants, his ongoing beef with actor Matt Damon, not to mention the snacks that parachuted from the ceiling much to the delight of the celebrities.

“Suit and Tie” singer Justin Timberlake opened the 89th annual Academy Awards with the song “Can’t Stop the Feeling” which set the tone for an evening of unity.


There were so many highlights of the night with the first Oscar given to Mahershala Ali for Best Supporting Actor for his role in the movie “Moonlight.” However, it was his heartfelt acceptance speech that made us all love him even more! Telling audience members and the world he was a new dad and thanking his wife for being such a strong supporter.



Another highpoint of the show was when Viola Davis won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for her role in the movie “Fences.” Viola delivered one of the best speeches in Oscar history. Take a look here.



Casey Affleck who won for Best Lead Actor for his role in “Manchester by the Sea” thanked fellow nominee Denzel Washington by saying “One of the first people who taught me how to act was Denzel Washington, and I just met him tonight for the first time. Thank you,” he concluded. Affleck also thanked director and writer of “Manchester by the Sea,” Kenneth Lonergan, as well as his brother Ben Affleck, his parents and friend Matt Damon.

A touching moment of the night was when the Hidden Figures cast, Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer and Janelle Monáe brought the real Katherine Johnson onstage. The historical mathematician instrumental with the aeronautics and space programs for NASA told the crowd, “Thank you!” What an amazing moment!


But who could forget the most memorable moment of the night when LaLa Land was mistakenly named Best Movie by presenters Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway due to a mix-up in the cards, and revealing it was, it fact, Moonlight who took home the Oscar for Best Movie!




Congratulations to the cast of Moonlight and all the winners!
