On 26th of February the 89th Academy Awards ceremony was held. An annual event gathering all Hollywood high society went stunning. Cinema stars from all over the world came to Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, Los Angeles, California to take part in world’s famous ceremony.

Those are the main categories that always make a lot of fuss. Other winners you can obviously check on an official Oscars website.
What’s also worth saying is an envelope fail. Well, while Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty ( well-known Bonnie and Clyde) opened the envelope it pointed that the Oscar for the Best Actress was Emma Stone from “La La Land”.As it wasn’t information about the Best Picture he was so confused that he wasn’t able say a word. Seeing only the title, Faye Dunaway assumed it was the winning film. Warren Beatty spotted the mistake , that’s why he was so puzzled. During the thankful speeches of the winners the mistake came to light. It turned out that wrong envelope had been handed in and the true winner is “Moonlight”! This awkward situation can be frankly called an Oscars fail.
Now, we again start anticipating for the next 90th Academy Award Ceremony.
