Academy awards 2017

Academy Awards 2017

Arguably the most highly – regarded accolade ceremony in the film industry, winning an Academy Award can define an actor, actress or director’s career. The prestige and recognition that it gives those lucky enough to win it cannot be compared to any other prize in the field: the Oscars are definitely in another level. The 89th Academy Awards were presented and given at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, California, on February 26th, 2017. La La Land had the most nominations (14) and statues (6), but the Best Film prize went to Moonlight in one of the most bizarre and embarrassing moments in the history of the Academy Awards: Faye Dunaway initially called ‘La La Land’ as the winning movie, but she read the wrong card. La La Land’s crew had to be stopped in the middle of their speech. Later, after accepting the award, Moonlight people said that the epic blunder was “disrespectful” to the eventual losers in the category.

Here is the complete list of winners in the 2017 Academy Awards:

BAFTA 2017

The British Academy of Film and Television Arts, or Bafta, has its own version of the Academy Awards, only focused on recognizing talent around the United Kingdom. Since it functions as an independent and charitable organism, BAFTA has a programme of learning events and initiatives that offers access to activities and benefits such as workshops, master classes, scholarships, lectures and mentoring both in Great Britain and the United States. This year’s ceremony was held on February 12th, 2017 at the Royal Albert Hall in London, honoring the best British and international contributions to film of the year before, 2016. The evening was hosted by Stephen Fry.

To no one’s surprise, La La Land received the most nominations in eleven categories, including Best Film, Best Director (Damien Chazelle), Best Actor in a Leading Role (Ryan Gosling), Best Actress in a Leading Role (Emma Stone), and Best Original Screenplay (Chazelle). Arrival and Nocturnal Animals were the other two movies with very high consideration, each with nine nominations. La La Land went home victorious with the Best Film award and five others: Best Director (Chazelle), Leading Actress (Stone), Cinematography and Original Music. Oddly, neither Arrival nor Nocturnal Animals were the second ranked movie in number of awards. That honor went to Lion and Manchester by the Sea, each with two, and Moonlight was left with empty hands having won no trophies. Nocturnal Animals and Arrival only got one trophy each, despite having 18 nominations between the two. Casey Affleck’s triumph as the Best Actor was expected by experts and mainstream media, but Dev Patel’s Best Supporting Actor award was somewhat surprising.

The Golden Globes winners are selected by the 93 members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, and recognize the best of the best in film and television, both of the United States of America and from foreign countries. This year’s edition, the 74th in history, honored talent and productions from 2016, and took place in The Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, California, on January 8, 2017 with the presence of the always entertaining Jimmy Fallon as host. Only two films received multiple wins: Elle, with two, and of course, the main sensation of the season, La La Land, with seven Golden Globes to its name. In fact, it can be said that Damian Chazelle’s movie “sweeped” its competition: it won its seven nominations, an incredible feat.
