Oscars 2017: What in False Nomination?!

March 2, 2017

It’s that time of the year again when the top people in the film industry gather for a classy Hunger Games for prestige. I went into this year’s Oscars thinking that the most exciting event would be the surprise of La La Land not sweeping up all the awards up, like many were expecting. But host Jimmy Kimmel did not disappoint; this night will go down in history.

 

Justin Timberlake and dancers uncomfortably dancing down the aisles was probably not the best way the start the show, but the beautifully orchestrated performances by Lin-Manuel Miranda, Auli'i Cravalho, and John Legend for Moana and La La Land, respectively, more than made up for it.

...Except for when one of the dancers accidentally smacked Auli'i in the head in the middle of “How Far I’ll Go.” Props to her for being an excellent performer and keeping the show going, unfazed! #JusticeForAuliiCravalho2k17

 

Many of Jimmy’s jokes were a hit, like his tweets calling out President Trump…

 

...and his ongoing rivalry with Matt Damon, having him announced as Ben Affleck’s “guest” when presenting an award, while Matt stuck out his leg and tripped him about two hours into the show.

 


But there were some jokes that sparked controversy, particularly when he lifted child actor Sunny Pawar in the air like Simba from The Lion King. Some say that this gesture was racist and ageist, but I personally thought it was just a play on the fact that the film that he starred in was called Lion.

 

 

The biggest controversy, and the main reason why this year’s Oscars will live in infamy, is when Bonnie and Clyde stars Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty pulled a Steve Harvey, accidentally announcing La La Land as the Best Picture of 2017 instead of the true winner, Moonlight.

 

 

 

 

Apparently Brian Cullinan, board chair of Oscars partner Pricewaterhousecoopers U.S., handed Beatty a duplicate of the Best Actress envelope while tweeting out photos of Emma Stone backstage.

 

 

The tweet has since been deleted.

 

All the craziness aside, we got to find out who got to take home the “hottest guy in the room” (Octavia Spencer, Oscars 2012). Check out the full list of nominees and winners (bolded) below!
