Oscars 2017 highlights: Moonlight wins Best Picture, Casey Affleck bags Best Actor, La La Land sweeps 6 awards

In one of the strangest and most shocking moments in Oscar history, "Moonlight" was named Oscar winner for best picture only after "La La Land" was announced first.

After La La Land was announced as Best Picture, the whole team of the film rushed to the stage and as the winning speech goes on, officials came on stage to inform the film’s cast and creators – and the world – that there had been a terrible mistake.


The Oscar for Best Actor in a Lead Role goes to Casey Affleck for Manchester By The Sea while Emma Stone bags Best Actress for La La Land.

"Ryan Gosling," Emma Stone said, "thank you for making me laugh and for always raising the bar and being the greatest partner on this crazy adventure." To her crew and her friends, she said, "I'm going to hug the hell out of you when the feeling reenters my body."

Casey Affleck's speech acceptance speech: "That means so much to me thank you. One of the first people who taught me how to act was Denzel Washington and I just met him for the first time tonight – thank you."

"And to all the other nominees who did great work, I’m proud to be in your company. You guys are very brave and I admire what you do. And I’m only here really because of the talents and good will of so many people that are impossible to name, but most of all Kenneth Lonergan, who made this part and without this part and without his writing I wouldn’t be here for sure. Man, I wish I had something bigger and more meaningful to say, but I’m really proud to be a part of this community and I look out at all of you and I have this whole year and I’m just dumbfounded that I’m included. It means a lot to me. Thank you also to Matt Damon for creating this opportunity  and to Patrick and Boomer and to so many people of course my mother and my father for mostly (usually) believing in me in doing this and  thank you all very much."
