Oscars flap eclipses ‘Moonlight’ win, but civility reigns

The 89th Academy Awards got off on the right foot, with a song and dance, but ended with the most stunning mistake ever to befall the esteemed awards show when the best picture Oscar was presented to the wrong movie. Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty, holding an incorrect envelope, wrongly presented the top prize to “La La Land,” instead of “Moonlight.”

Stars and Stripes staff on the best picture nominees

The spotlight is once again on Hollywood, the city of stars, and there’s much to love about the Academy’s favorite movies in 2016. Nine movies made the best picture cut this year, and the field is remarkably more diverse. The nominees include a science-fiction film, a neo-Western, a musical, a war movie about a conscientious objector and a true story about the African-American women who sent men to the moon. Refreshingly, the nominated actors cover a range of races and nationalities. The diverse array of this year’s fine movies provides something for just about everyone.

The Academy Awards will air Feb. 27 on AFN-Movie.
