The 2017 Academy Awards is over and as the stars celebrate their wins, here’s a rundown of what went down at this year’s Oscars. There were many highlights from this year’s event.
From the opening number by Justin Timberlake to Jimmy Kimmel’s continuous ribs on Matt Damon and the appearance of the DeLorean and Michael J Fox, this year’s Academy Awards was a fun affair.
Still the Oscars were not without its share of great speeches and weirdness and a major snafu, which will be remembered for years to come. The 2017 Academy Awards will forever be immortalised by the wrong announcement of Best Picture. What a way to close out a show.
