The 2017 Oscar Awards were fantastic. They kicked it off with a performance from Justin Timberlake performing his nominated song Can’t Stop The Feelin from Trolls, Jimmy Kimmel was a fantastic host this year and there were tons of political speeches and jokes through out. Sting performed a beautiful song from the nominated Documentary The Jim Foley Story, Auli’i Cravalho and Lin-Manuel Miranda gave an amazing performance from Moana. The show had some pretty shocked star tour guests come through, and Let’s not forget about that MASSIVE mix-up at the end when the wrong movie name was read. Thankfully the La La Land crew was so gracious and made sure the award went to the right film. In case you missed the awards. . . .
