The day after Oscar's craziest, shocking moment ever, questions still linger about why "La La Land" was announced best picture when "Moonlight" was the true winner.

L.A. Times' film critic Justin Chang comes to the conclusion that the two movies' fortunes were inextricable and the you-couldn’t-have-scripted-it finale oddly enough made sense.

A year after #Oscarssowhite, a record-breaking night for black filmmakers and actors

A year after the #Oscarssowhite outrage dominated awards season, a record-breaking number of African Americans -- six in five categories -- left the Dolby Theatre with statuary. The previous record was three at the shows in 2010 and 2014.

Viola Davis won tonight for supporting actress in "Fences." Mahershala Ali took home the statue for supporting actor in "Moonlight," setting another record: the first Muslim actor to win an Oscar. Ezra Edelman, who is biracial, won best documentary for "O.J. Simpson: Made in America," and Barry Jenkins and Tarell Alvin McCraney won for adapted screenplay for "Moonlight."

UPDATE: One more win: After a false start with "La La Land," "Moonlight" took home best picture.
