Best Picture mix-up at Oscars has social media buzzing, nearly overshadows rest of event

By  | 

The biggest night in Hollywood - The Oscars.

Actors and actresses dressed to the nines, descending on Los Angeles for the 89th Academy Awards.

A stunning and unprecedented Oscar night flub after "La La Land" was mistakenly announced as best picture, despite the winner being "Moonlight", causing confusion on the stage where the "La La Land" team had already accepted the award.

Regardless of the mistake, fans may not have a problem with that.

Jimmy Kimmel getting largely positive reviews on one of the toughest gigs in showbiz.

Kimmel opened with some subtle and not so subtle jabs at President Trump, at one point even taking out his cell phone to tweet at him.

And after outrage over the lack of diversity in the academy awards in past years - this year's ceremony celebrated it as Viola Davis won Best Supporting Actress for her role in "Fences", making her the first African American to win an Oscar, Emmy, and Tony for acting roles.

Mahershala Ali taking best supporting actor for "Moonlight" and Barry Jenkins picking up best adapted screen play for the same film.
