It seemed that on the 89th of the ceremony of the Academy awards most nominations will take “La La land”. The Director of the musical Damen of Sazell (Damien Chazelle) won the Oscar for best Director, his star Emma stone (Emma Stone) was awarded as best actress, and many already thought that this project — a sort of nod to the old Hollywood is sure to be named best film.
The audience waited with bated breath, and now Warren Beatty (Warren Beatty) and faye dunaway (Faye Dunaway) announced the winner — “La La land”.
Although many were rooting for “Moonlight” is a non — profit cinema dedicated to the thrilling story of growing up black men, it became clear that the jury has once again opted for the safe option.
The creators of “La La land” came on the scene and began to receive awards and to thank those who supported them, but there was one problem — in fact, their film didn’t win. It turned out that Beatty and dunaway made a mistake, and the prize was awarded to “Moon light”.
Here is such a “sudden plot twist”!
When the creators of “Moonlight,” I realized that they are the real winners, they got up on stage and Director Barry Jenkins (Barry Jenkins) told the audience: “I never even dreamed of, but damn the dreams are reality!”
After the unexpected victory of the “Moonlight” Twitter exploded with congratulations:
Late in the Moonlight…hour God’s gonna turn it around…

@AfricanDad At a late hour, in the hour of “Moonlight”… God will reward all merit… (allusion to the gospel “We are blessed” — approx. TRANS.)

@LeftSentThis When “Moonlight” won the “La La land” and received the “Oscar” for best film, Twitter became similar to America after the acquittal of O. J. Simpson. @delashereen Great end to black history Month!
