89th Academy Award Winners

The winners for the 89th Academy Awards have been announced and honored. Herein, the full list of winners. (Winners are notated with an asterisk, and are in bold typeface.)

Best Picture
Maybe the best moment and surprise of the night, the right movie actually won! And you know that "There's been a mistake. Moonlight, you guys won Best Picture," will be not only be remembered for years to come, but will also be part of the Oscars promo next year with a tagline like, "It's live. Anything can happen."

Actor in a Leading Role
  • Casey Affleck, Manchester by the Sea*
  • Andrew Garfield, Hacksaw Ridge
  • Ryan Gosling, La La Land
  • Viggo Mortensen, Captain Fantastic
  • Denzel Washington, Fences

  • Michael Shannon, Nocturnal Animals
Actress in a Supporting Role
  • Viola Davis, Fences*
  • Naomie Harris, Moonlight
  • Nicole Kidman, Lion
  • Octavia Spencer, Hidden Figures
  • Michelle Williams, Manchester by the Sea
Viola Davis not only adds to her trophy shelf, but this, her first Oscar win, is an award for a role that already netted her a Tony, (in 2010) joining a select few to have won an award for playing the same role in different mediums.

  • Denis Villeneuve, Arrival
  • Mel Gibson, Hacksaw Ridge
  • Damien Chazelle, La La Land*
  • Kenneth Lonergan, Manchester by the Sea
  • Barry Jenkins, Moonlight
As noted during the broadcast, at 32, Chazelle is the youngest person to win this award.

Adapted Screenplay
  • Eric Heisserer, Arrival
  • August Wilson, Fences
  • Allison Schroeder and Theodore Melfi, Hidden Figures
  • Luke Davies, Lion
  • Barry Jenkins (screenplay), Tarell Alvin McCraney (story), Moonlight*
This is so well-deserved, and Jenkins's and McCraney's pathos and passion were on full display in their beautiful, important speeches. (Remember that McCraney is also a playwright, who's Head of Passes was one of the highlights of 2016.)

Original Screenplay
  • Taylor Sheridan, Hell or High Water
  • Damien Chazelle, La La Land
  • Yorgos Lanthimos and Efthimis Filippou, The Lobster
  • Kenneth Lonergan, Manchester by the Sea*
  • Mike Mills, 20th Century Women
Bravo to playwright Lonergan, who was recently on the off-Broadway boards with Hold On To Me Darling.

Original Score
  • Mica Levi, Jackie
  • Justin Hurwitz, La La Land*
  • Dustin O'Halloran and Hauschka, Lion
  • Nicholas Britell, Moonlight
  • Thomas Newman, Passengers
Original Song
  • "Audition (The Fools Who Dream)," La La Land, music by Justin Hurwitz, lyrics by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul
  • "Can't Stop the Feeling," Trolls, by Justin Timberlake, Max Martin, and Karl Johan Schuster
  • "City of Stars," La La Land, music by Justin Hurwitz, lyrics by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul*
  • "The Empty Chair," Jim: The James Foley Story, by J. Ralph and Sting
  • "How Far I'll Go," Moana, by Lin-Manuel Miranda
I'm thrilled for theatre kids Pasek and Paul (though I thought "Audition" was, contextually, a more potent song), and loved Benj Pasek shouting out to the kids who sing in the rain and the moms who let them. (Also, go see Pasek and Paul's original Broadway musical, Dear Evan Hansen as soon as possible!)
