The five thing you should know about the Oscars 2017 The most important moments of the night of the stars 2017

Last night all the brightest stars of Hollywood enlightened the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles for the Oscars 2017 ceremony. The Academy's party, who rewards the best artists and cinematographic works of the year, was everything you thought it would be and it kept the audience with the bated breath until the end. So. Here are the most important moments of the show.

#1 And the winner is...
This time all eyes were focused on La La Land, which conquered the general public and 14 nominations. The Damien Chanzelle's movie took six Oscars, including Best Cinematography, Best Song con City Of Stars, Best Director and Best Actress, delivered to Emma Stone. The other star of the night was Moonlight, the Barry Jenkins's independent movie awarded with the coveted Best Picture prize, and also Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Supporting Actor thanks to the actor Mahershala Ali. Winners of the night also Casey Affleck as Best Actor with Manchester By The Sea (which was also rewarded with Best Original Screenplay) and Viola Davids as Best Supporting Actress. 

#2 Special guest
The Hidden Figures' cast invited on stage Katherine Johnson, the 98-years-old NASA aerospace engineer, as a tribute to all people who inspired the based-on-a-true-story movie. Her few words were just “Thank you very much”, but they were enough to express all her joy and honor to be on the stage of Oscars.

#3 Fun fact
Jimmy Kimmel, the host of the night, brought surprisingly on the stage of Dolby Theatre a group of tourists of Hollywood, unaware of being victims of a “little prank”. The group, thinking to visit a cinematographic exhibition, get on stage surrounded by all the Hollywood stars. 

#4 Oops..!
Not everything comes easy, obviously. During the announcement of the Best Picture, La La Land was awarded wrongly, instead of the real winner Moonlight. The La La Land's cast was just on stage and the director had the prize in his hand, when the manager stopped them, explaining it was an error, with the general embarrassment and astonishment.

#5 Political message
The Iran director Asghar Farhadi of the movie The Salesman, winner of the Best Foreign prize, didn't take part of the show as protest act against the Donald Trump's ban on immigration. On his behalf a letter in which the director explained his reasons for not being there:

"I'm sorry I'm not with you tonight. My absence is out of respect for the people of my country and those from other six nations who have been disrespected by the inhumane law that bans entry of immigrants to the US. Dividing the world into the US and our enemies categories creates fear - a deceitful justification for aggression and war".
