Here’s your cheat sheet for this year’s Oscars 2017 awards

Including THAT La La Land blunder.

The Oscars 2017 took place last night at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, as to be expected the night was full of talking points. Here’s everything you could possibly need to know about this year’s awards.

Oscars 2017 Winners

Much to nobody’s surprise, La La Land cleaned up at the Oscars after winning a total of six awards. Emma Stone was awarded the Oscar for Best Actress, whilst Casey Affleck won the Best Actor Oscar for his role in Manchester By The Sea. The cast of Moonlight also walked away with 3 awards, including Best Supporting Actor for Mahershala Ali and Viola Davis won the Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her role in Fences.

Oscars 2017 red carpet

The stars showed up in style for the Oscars 2017 red carpet, and golden gowns appeared to be the clear choice for many of the celebs. Once again the A-lists used the red carpet as a chance to get political, this time adorning blue ribbons in support of the American Civil Liberties Union. Emma Stone also took the opportunity to throw very subtle shade at Donald Trump with this hidden detail on her Oscars dress.

Oscars 2017 best moments

The Oscars were full of talking points throughout the night, from Natalie Portman pulling out at the last minute to Dev Patel taking THE sweetest date and Meryl Streep getting the standing ovation she truly deserves – it’s fair to say we weren’t bored. Once again the red carpet was adored with the cutest celebrity couples – although Jessica Biel didn’t look too impressed with hubby Justin Timberlake.

However, the night’s biggest talking point was THAT awkward moment when La La Land were mistakenly given the Oscar for Best Motion Picture – an award Moonlight actually won. Though that’s not exactly a ‘best moment’, is it.

Who hosted the Oscars 2017?

The Oscars 2017 will be hosted this year by US talk show host, Jimmy Kimmel. It will be the first time that Jimmy’s at the helm of the Academy Awards, but it’s not his first time leading a show and if his last stint hosting the 2016 Emmy Awards is anything to go by, we’re all in for a hilarious evening. Jimmy confirmed his hosting role back in December, tweeting: ‘Yes, I am hosting the Oscars. This is not a prank. And if it is, my revenge on @TheAcademy will be terrible & sweet. Thx to @alsformalwear.’

He has also joked about not being the first choice. ‘They asked like 14 people and they all said no and then there was me. I absolutely was surprised.’ He continued: ‘The producers and the Academy went through a long list of names, and in the end, they decided that — since I am already right across the street from where they do the show — I was the closest person to host.’

Who presented at the Oscars 2017?

The Academy confirmed that all of 2016’s acting category winners will be returning for this year’s ceremony to present their successors with their academy awards on stage, so we can definitely expect Leonardo DiCaprio, Brie Larson, Alicia Vikander and Mark Rylance to present the four main acting awards. We’ll have to wait and see who will join those four as the Academy Awards presenters.

What was in the Oscars 2017 goodie bags?

Each nominee received an Oscars goodie bag worth £160,000 (yes, really), filled with everything you could ever need from five holidays (from California and Hawaii to Sorrento and Lake Como) to 10 years’ worth of make up. The lucky recipients can also expect to find in their Oscars goodie bags everything from 10 sessions with a celebrity personal trainer and an Oomi smart home system to 12 cases of Opal apples and a Haze Dual vaporiser. There’s even a set of personalised Crayola crayons and a teach yourself CPR kit in there for good measure.

What was on the menu at the Oscars 2017?

The official Oscars menu was put together by celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck, and featured a whopping 50 dishes – Oscar themed whenever possible. We’re talking gold-dusted truffle popcorn, lobster corn dogs, carrot juice-infused pasta, smoked salmon hors d’oeuvres served on Oscar-shaped crackers, and every kind of sushi imaginable served from a 2,600lb ice raw bar. In terms of desserts it only gets better, offering up lava cakes, red velvet waffles, home made pretzels, oreo s’mores and caramel cappuccino Oscar statue lollipops.
