“City of Stars,” a duet between stars Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone from the musical “La La Land,” won the original song Oscar. The song’s music was written by Justin Hurwitz with lyrics by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul.
Pasek and Paul were tapped to write the lyrics for the songs in “La La Land” after pitching the opening lyrics to “City of Stars”: “City of Stars, are you shining just for me? / City of Stars, there’s so much that I can’t see.”
The win denied Lin-Manuel Miranda, creator of the landmark Broadway musical “Hamilton” and writer of “How Far I’ll Go,” entry into the exclusive EGOT club: winning an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony.
The best picture gaffe may have dropped jaws inside the Dolby Theatre on Sunday, but before the show, these are the dresses that turned heads on the red carpet.
Stylist Petra Flannery Instagrammed this concept illustration of the beaded Givenchy Haute Couture gown "La La Land" star Emma Stone accepted her lead actress award in. The hand-embroidered gown reportedly took 1,700 hours to make.
Two days after the Oscars, still facing questions about the best picture snafu in which he unwittingly found himself embroiled, Warren Beatty called on the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to "publicly clarify" what exactly happened.
In a statement released Tuesday to the Associated Press, the actor declined to comment further on the fumble in which he and fellow presenter Faye Dunaway mistakenly named "La La Land" the best picture winner rather than "Moonlight."
"I feel it would be more appropriate for the president of the Academy, Cheryl Boone Isaacs, to publicly clarify what happened as soon as possible," Beatty said.
Very few media outlets get backstage positions for their photographers at the Academy Awards, but the L.A. Times has enjoyed such access for many years now. Here, you'll get a peek at actors, actresses and filmmakers as they let their guards down, like Ashton Sanders, above left, and Jharrel Jerome embrace after "Moonlight" was (eventually) named best picture.
PricewaterhouseCoopers managing partner Brian Cullinan, above right, was one of only two people responsible for handing presenters the correct envelopes. It was Cullinan who gave Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway the incorrect envelope for best picture.
Hello, you two! Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux head to the stage.
Turn your attention away from the best-picture envelope mishap at the Oscars on Sunday and check out the new black-and-white men’s underwear campaign from Calvin Klein, celebrating the Academy Award-winning “Moonlight.”
The ads are already causing a commotion on the Internet, leaving many to possibly swoon after seeing photos of Oscar winner (and shirtless Calvin Klein model) Mahershala Ali and Trevante Rhodes (wearing briefs).
Calvin Klein’s new spring 2017 underwear campaign, honoring the actors of “Moonlight,” the first LGBTQ film to win best picture at the Academy Awards, will run as print advertisements and appear on billboards. The campaign could broaden visibility and appeal for the indie movie, which was made on a shoestring budget.
Jimmy Kimmel and the Oscars are unlikely to win any awards for casting.
Turns out viral sensation "Gary From Chicago," a.k.a. Gary Alan Coe, the first unsuspecting tourist Jimmy Kimmel introduced to front-row A-listers on Sunday night, was released from prison only three days before he was kissing Nicole Kidman's hand and getting "married" to fiancee Vickie Vines by Denzel Washington.
Following the epic Oscars best picture mix-up on Sunday, a few high-profile seat fillers shared what it was like witnessing the historic gaffe firsthand. The People's eyebrow made an appearance at the Oscars, as did Busy Philipps.
Here's what the stars in our viral reaction shot had to say:
Brie Larson did not applaud, which sparked speculation that she wasn't happy about Casey Affleck's Oscar win for supporting actor.
The actress -- who won an Oscar last year for her portrayal of a survivor of rape -- stood unmoving as Affleck delivered his acceptance speech at Sunday's Academy Awards.
Larson hugged him as she handed him the Oscar, but some interpreted her stance during his speech as a silent protest of sexual harassment. Affleck's Oscar campaign had been dogged by two 2010 civil suits involving allegations of sexual harassment, both of which were later settled.
At Sunday night’s Academy Awards, a last-minute fumble overshadowed a much larger, and more significant, event.
While everyone scrambled to absorb, and then deconstruct, the mistaken announcement of “La La Land” as best picture when “Moonlight” had actually won, a thousand conversations about errant envelopes threatened to take the spotlight off the historic nature of the night’s winners.
After two years of blistering criticism over back-to-back slates of all-white nominees, the motion picture academy spent the better part of last year attempting to broaden its membership and its sense of what it stood for as the public face of the movie business. Stung by last year’s #OscarsSoWhite furor, the group headed into the 89th Academy Awards hoping to turn the page on the diversity debate — and perhaps find a moment of redemption.
