HOLLYWOOD – The 89th Academy Awards 2017 ceremony has been concluded with many expected and few surprised results here at Dolby Theatre, Hollywood, Los Angeles, PakistanTribe.com reported.
Below is the complete list of Oscars 2017 winners, developed and organised by the PakistanTribe’s lifestyle desk as it happening at Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles.

Casey Affleck baged Oscars for the best actor in a leading role for his film, ‘Manchester by the sea’.
‘Moonlight’ wins best picture Oscar
“Moonlight,” a poignant coming-of-age story set in the tough projects of southern Florida, on Sunday won the best picture Oscar — but not before the prize was first given in error to musical “La La Land.”
Directing – Damien Chazelle for ‘La La Land’
Another Oscar for 14 times nominated film, ‘La La Land’ as Damien Chazelle baged Directing Oscar.
‘Zootopia’ wins Oscar for best animated picture
Buddy cop comedy “Zootopia” bagged the Oscar for best animated feature film on Sunday, crowning what turned into a record 2016 for Disney.
Best foreign language film – Iran’s ‘The Salesman’ wins Oscar as Farhadi boycotts
Iranian film “The Salesman” on Sunday won the Oscar for best foreign language film, but director Asghar Farhadi skipped the Hollywood gala in protest at a travel ban by US President Donald Trump.
Best Supporting Actress: Viola Davis wins Oscar on third try for ‘Fences’
The third time was indeed the charm for Viola Davis, who took home the best supporting actress Oscar on Sunday for her gut-wrenching performance in the big screen adaptation of August Wilson’s searing play “Fences.”
Best documentary – O.J. Simpson documentary wins Oscar
A film about the O.J. Simpson murder trial that transfixed the United States two decades ago won the best documentary Oscar on Sunday, with the director dedicating the prize to crime victims.
Best documentary short – Film on Syria’s White Helmets wins Oscar
A film about Syria’s White Helmets — rescuers who risk their lives to help save civilians caught in the country’s devastating war — took home the Oscar for best documentary short on Sunday.
The Netflix-produced film, called simply “The White Helmets,” was directed by Orlando von Einsiedel, and bested another short about the Syrian conflict, “Watani: My Homeland.”
Best supporting actor – Mahershala Ali becomes first Muslim actor to win Oscar
Heavily-backed favorite Mahershala Ali won the best supporting actor Oscar on Sunday for his portrayal of a drug dealer in coming-of-age drama “Moonlight” — becoming the first Muslim film star to pick up a golden statuette.
A first-time nominee, the 43-year-old actor saw off competition from Britain’s Dev Patel, veteran US actors Jeff Bridges and Michael Shannon and newcomer Lucas Hedges.
“I want to thank my teachers, my professors,” Ali said. “One thing that they consistently told me… ‘It’s not about you. It’s about these characters. You are a servant. You’re in service to these stories and these characters’.”
‘La La Land’ composer wins two Oscars
Composer Justin Hurwitz won two Oscars on Sunday for the music behind “La La Land” after his bid to revive yet modernize musicals triumphed decisively at the box office.
Taking the stage at the Hollywood gala, Hurwitz saluted the musicians and actors in “La La Land” and said he wrote the score with them in mind.
Despite the film’s contemporary setting, Hurwitz gave a retro Hollywood sound to “La La Land,” which led the night’s nominations.
“La La Land” took the Oscar for best original score in a field that included music from “Moonlight,” a film that featured a unique blend of hip-hop but which was nowhere near as driven by the music.
Hurwitz also won for best original song with “City of Stars,” a duet between “La La Land” stars Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling, whose swings between major and minor keys mirror the plot tension.
