View The Complete List Of 2017 Oscar Nominees And Winners


We saw great movies and TV shows in the last quarter of 2016 and the bar went even higher in 2017’s list of great TV shows and movies that charmed many people to their television screens. Now in its 89th year, the Oscar Awards is a celebration of the film industry’s cinematic achievements. The 2017 Oscar Nominees and Winners are a testament to a growing movie industry.


Controversies Galore

Controversies and complaints have always trailed Oscar announcements, with the last edition tagged “all-white Oscar” by aggrieved actors. This time it was Warren Beatty and co-presenter Faye Dunaway that were in the spotlight for mistakenly announcing “La La Land” as the winner of the “Best Picture” instead of “Moonlight”. Hours after the announcement, PricewaterhouseCoopers, the accounting firm that is in charge of the Oscar envelopes, took full responsibility of the mix-up in its statement of apology.
