The first award of the night went to Mahershala Ali of “Moonlight” for Best Supporting Actor, making him the first Muslim actor to win an Oscar. Also of note was Viola Davis’ emotional acceptance speech for her Best Supporting Actress win.

“La La Land” had led the pack of contenders with 14 nominations, tying “Titanic” and “All About Eve” for the most nominations in Oscar history.

During the show, “Moonlight” picked up three awards to “La La Land’s” five, and both movies produced a Best Supporting Actor. The two were toe-to-toe in the Best Picture race, which made the climax of the night all the more agonizing.

The incorrect movie was announced as Best Picture winner, a flub that will live on in Oscars history.
