On Sunday, February 26th the media world gathered together to celebrate a night of great accomplishment. The Oscars is the night that many people look forward to, excited to see who the year’s best nominations and actors were.
According to CNN, “The cast and crew of ‘Moonlight’ accept the best picture Oscar during the Academy Awards on Sunday, February 26. The winner was initially announced as ‘La La Land’ by presenter Faye Dunaway, but moments later it was revealed that there was a mistake and ‘Moonlight’ had actually won.” This definitely is a moment of disappointment for those that did not actually ‘win’ that night.
“I don’t understand how they come up with the candidates.” States Michael Sanchez, a student at Snow College.
Over time, the Oscar’s have been something important to the United States Film industry. It has taught the film industry to truly be competitive in a sense. Maybe next time we will pick and choose and be more careful on the films we want to call the best.
