"Moonlight" won the Oscar for best picture on Sunday, beating favorite "La La Land" for the movie industry's most prestigious award.

But in a highly unusual mishap, presenter Warren Beatty first, mistakenly initially announced that musical "La La Land" had won, causing confusion and uproar on Hollywood's biggest night. Beatty said he had been given the wrong envelope to open.

Emma Stone won best actress for the musical, and "Manchester by the Sea" star Casey Affleck was named best actor on a night where U.S. President Donald Trump was the butt of numerous jokes, capping a Hollywood awards season marked by fiery protests at his policies.

"La La Land" director Damien Chazelle, 32, became the youngest person to ever win a best director Oscar.

Viola Davis and Mahershala Ali won their first Oscars for their supporting roles in African-American stories "Fences" and "Moonlight," in stark contrast to the 2016 Academy Awards when no actors of color were even nominated.

"Moonlight," the coming of age tale of a young black boy in Miami, also won the best adapted screenplay statuette, while grief-driven independent drama "Manchester by the Sea" took home original screenplay.

Romantic musical "La La Land," the tale of a struggling actress and a jazz pianist in Los Angeles, went into the Oscars with a leading 14 nominations and emerged with six, including for its score and theme song "City of Stars."

Trump's presence loomed large at the three and a half hour show as host Jimmy Kimmel fired off political zingers and even tweeted at the Republican president, getting no immediate response.

Viola Davis, Iranian movie win Oscars as Trump looms large

"O.J.: Made in America," a series about the 1995 double murder trial of former footballer O.J. Simpson won best documentary.

Trump and actress Meryl Streep also took center stage on the movie industry's biggest night as host Jimmy Kimmel fired off political zingers after an awards season marked by celebrity opposition to the Republican president and his policies.

"I want to say thank you to President Trump. Remember last year when it seemed like the Oscars were racist?" quipped Kimmel in an apparent reference to Trump's crackdown on immigrants and travelers from seven majority Muslim nations.

Streep, 67, was given a standing ovation by the Oscar audience after Kimmel recalled how Trump had derided the actress as "overrated" after she attacked him at the Golden Globes ceremony in January.

"Meryl Streep has phoned it in for more than 50 films in the course of her lackluster career," Kimmel quipped as triple Oscar winner Streep squirmed in her seat.

Several celebrities wore blue ribbons on Sunday in support of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) advocacy group that worked to get Trump's travel ban blocked in U.S. courts.

Iran's "The Salesman" was named best foreign language film but its director, Asghar Farhadi, boycotted Sunday's ceremony because of the Trump's controversial bid to ban travelers from seven majority Muslim nations.

In a speech delivered on his behalf by Iranian-American space expert Anousheh Ansari, Farhadi said his absence was due to "an inhumane law that bans entry into the U.S... Dividing the world into the 'us' and 'our enemies' categories creates fear, a deceitful justification for aggression and war."


Cheryl Boone Isaacs, president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences which votes on the Oscar winners, made no mention of Trump when she took the stage on Sunday.

But she told the audience of A-listers and the millions of people watching on television around the world that, "tonight is proof that art has no borders, art has no single language and art does not belong to a single faith. The power of art is that it transcends these things," she said.

With a leading 14 nominations, romantic musical "La La Land" had looked set to dance away with an armful of Academy Awards, including best picture at the end of the night, for its love letter to artistic ambition and Los Angeles itself.

A best picture win for "La La Land," starring Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone as a jazz pianist and a struggling actress, would be the first musical to win best picture at the Academy Awards since "Chicago" in 2003.

But the movie's chances of equaling the 11 Oscar record held by "Titanic," "Ben-Hur," and "Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King," appeared to have slipped away as the musical lost early technical awards for sound and costumes.

• Cadillac ran an ad during the ceremony that some felt had political undertones, though ahead of the Oscars the company said it’s a “celebration of the incredible American spirit.”

• The Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs: “Tonight is proof that art has no borders”

• Jokes about divided nation continue

The jokes about divide in America persisted throughout the night, with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson saying that the only thing to bring people together in “these highly-charged political times” would be his live performance of a song from the animated movie "Moana."

Johnson introduced his co-stars from the film to perform, but didn’t sing himself.

• Viola Davis wins best actress in supporting role

Viola Davis walked away with the Oscar for best actress in a supporting role for her work in "Fences," her first Academy Award win and third nomination.

With her win, she became the first African-American performer to win an Oscar, an Emmy and a Tony. While her acceptance speech steered clear of any direct political statements, her emotion filled address drew plaudits on social media.

• Best Foreign Language Film: The Salesman - Iran

"The Salesman" wins for best foreign language film. It's director, Asghar Farhadi, is boycotting the Academy Awards following President Trump's order barring people from seven predominately Muslim countries, including Iran, from entering the U.S.

• New York Times airs Oscars ad

The New York Times ran its first-ever TV ad during the ceremony with a spot that appears to target the Trump administration titled "The Truth."

The ad lists conflicting statements that all start with three words, "The truth is."

"The truth is the media is dishonest," reads one statement, which appears to be a reference to President Trump's repeated assertion that the media is dishonest.
