This year’s Oscars stood out prominently in the media headlines, not for all the good reasons. And there were some amazing moments that were actually eclipsed unlikely occurrences.
At one moment, viewers hit social media in their droves to comment on Nicole Kidman’s awkward technique as she celebrated winners at the Academy Awards. The way she clapped sparked a series of funny and hilarious gifs on social media.
Ms Kidman’s unorthodox clapping style was just one talking point in a ceremony that saw a few surprises – most notably, Warren Beatty reading out the wrong film as winner in the Best Picture category.
Beatty, presenting the award with Faye Dunaway, told the audience that Damien Chazelle’s La La Land had claimed the award – when in fact the winner was Barry Jenkins’s Moonlight.
The mistake was only discovered after the team behind La La Land had taken to the stage.
