LOS ANGELES - Moonlight wins Best Picture Oscar at the 89th Academy Awards. Moonlight is a coming of age film that engenders sexual orientation among poverty stricken ethnic minorities in the Southeast. The film beat out competitors such as Manchester by the Sea, Northeastern man with an existential crisis, and La La Land, a musical about the Californian dream. Over an awkward fumble, the Best Picture was initially presented to La La Land. After the crew of La La Land went on stage and gave acceptance stages, the call was corrected.

Emma Stone won Best Actress, Casey Affleck won Best Actor, and Damien Chazelle won Best Director.
