‘Moonlight’ Wins Best Picture at Oscars

February 27, 2017

With a bit of a dramatic ending, Moonlight concluded the awards season last night with three Oscar statues at the 89th Academy Awards. Actor Mahershala Ali won “Best Supporting Actor;” director Barry Jenkins and playwright Tarell Alvin McCraney earned “Best Adapted Screenplay” and the film won “Best Picture” – the most coveted prize of the night.

On Saturday, Moonlight dominated the 2017 Film Independent Spirit Awards, winning every category they were nominated in: “Best Feature,” “Best Director,” “Best Screenplay,” “Best Cinematography,” “Best Editing” (for which co-editor Joi McMillon became the first black woman to win such an award), and the “Robert Altman Award.”

Take a look at all the acceptance speeches below, and congratulations to Moonlight and the entire team at A24 and Plan B.
