Oscar Awards 2017 live streaming

The two men whose movies won best picture at this year's Oscars - albeit one of them only briefly - have talked about their solidarity in a joint interview.

Dunaway announced the victor for the Best Picture category for La La Land, but minutes later the producers of Moonlight were informed that it was actually their film that had won the award.

That explains why a confused Stone told reporters afterwards: "I was holding my best actress in a leading role card that entire time".

- Mel Gibson's Hacksaw Ridge is up for six awards, but don't expect him to win Best Director. "Speaking now to Entertainment Weekly, he has revealed what he would have said: "[Moonlight writer Tarell Alvin McCraney] and I are this kid. This goes out to all those black and brown boys and girls and non-gender-conforming who don't see themselves. "This is to all of you".

Ruiz, wearing a bright red gown, and Cullinan, in a tux, supervised the whole process and carried the envelopes with the winners to the Oscars. "I'm still basically processing it because it was in front of so many people".

She commended show producers Jennifer Todd and Michael De Luca, presenters Beatty and Dunaway and host Jimmy Kimmel for handling the unprecedented situation so gracefully. And so, to anyone watching this who sees themselves in us, let this be a symbol, a reflection that leads you to love yourself.

After the #OscarsSoWhite hashtag caught on last year — the second year in a row when no actors of colour were nominated — this years awards showed a marked increase in diverse films and diverse nominees.

"Personally, I blame Steve Harvey for this", Kimmel said. "Remember past year when it seemed like the Oscars were racist?" One of her early turns included a guest turn on Louis C.K. HBO comedy series Lucky Louie in 2006 as a rebellious daughter who takes refuge in C.K.'s domicile. As of the end of the ceremony, he had not obliged.

Few other presenters or winners made overt political statements. Her film lost to "O.J.: Made in America", which explores the racial themes behind the 1995 murder trial of the former football star O.J. Simpson.

As for politics outside the Dolby Theatre, they were largely absent from this year's proceedings, despite the assumption that they would be front and center, as they have been since the election of Donald Trump. We are glad that we got to read this penned by the director himself. "This broadcast is being watched live by millions of Americans and around the world in more than 225 countries that now hate us", he said.
