LOOK: LA LA LAND Wins Big At The Oscars!

While the 89th Academy Awards seemed like a repeat of the Miss Universe 2015 pageant with La La Land being mistakenly announced as the winner of the Best Picture Award, the film was still the night's biggest winner with six awards out of 14 nominations.

The critically-acclaimed romantic comedy musical took home the most number of awards this year, bringing home Best Director and Best Actress award for Emma Stone who won over Meryl Streep, Natalie Portman, Ruth Negga and Isabelle Huppert.

On the other hand, Viola Davis' winning moment as Best Actress in a Supporting Role for Fences marked the first time a black actor won an Oscar, a Tony and an Emmy.
