"La La Land" proved why it was a clear musical favourite when it took home the most Oscars during the 89th Academy Awards on Sunday.
Among the many accolades the film received was the award for Best Picture, albeit momentarily, until the title was handed over to "Moonlight".
Award presenters Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway said they were accidentally given the wrong envelope which led to "La La Land" incorrectly being announced as the Best Picture for 2017. The incident was clarified at the end of the show when audiences were shown the correct envelope.
While the Best Picture award wasn't theirs for the keeping, some of the six awards the film took out included Best Actress, Best Director and Best Original Music Score.
Other memorable moments included Viola Davis claimed the Best Supporting Actress title for her work in "Fences".
Davis made history with the award, becoming the first African American woman to win an Oscar, Emmy and Tony for acting, known as the 'triple crown' of the industry.
Katherine Johnson, the physicist who's story formed the basis of the film "Hidden Figures", received a standing ovation when she was wheeled onto the stage by actress Taraji P. Henson.
Henson honoured the 98-year-old alongside fellow cast members, Octavia Spencer and Janelle Monae, while presenting the award for Best Documentary Feature.
Other notable winners included "Moonlight" actor Mahershala Ali who took out Best Supporting Actor, Ezra Edelman won Best Documentary Feature for "O.J.: Made in America" and Orlando von Einsiedel whose documentary "The White Helmets" wone Best Documentary Short Subject.
The Oscars was not without political controversy either, with filmmaker Asghar Farhadi abstaining from attendance in protest.
Farhadi, who directed "The Salesman", boycotted the ceremony in defiance of President Trump's Muslim travel ban. Iranian astronaut Anousheh Ansari accepted the award Best Foreign Film on his behalf.
Just outside all the glamour, Native Americans marched down Hollywood Boulevard to protest against the Dakota Access Pipeline. The DPA was put back in the spotlight when President Trump repealed the Obama administration's halt on the project.
