After watching La La Land dominate the musical and directorial categories at Sunday’s Oscars -- and even take the stage as the night's winner -- Moonlight took home the Academy’s top award, winning Best Picture over the odds-on favorite.
Director Barry Jenkins, who also won Best Adapted Screenplay earlier in the night for the Moonlight script, which was based on co-writer Tarell Alvin McCraney’s play, In Moonlight Black Boys Look Blue, accepted the award for the film -- after presenters Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway mistakenly announced La La Land as the winner -- and was joined onstage by the film’s cast.
Moonlight, which tells the story of a young black man growing up in the slums of Miami, garnered an impressive eight nominations at this year’s Oscars, ultimately walking away with three wins, including the biggest -- and most controversial -- of the night.
Earlier in the night, ET spoke with the three actors who play the movie’s protagonist, Chiron -- 12-year-old Alex R. Hibbert, 21-year-old Ashton Sanders and 27-year-old Trevante Rhodes -- on the red carpet, where they marveled about their “surreal” awards season run.
