The 89th Academy Awards ceremony, once again, made headlines for a very different reasons this year when La La Land was incorrectly announced as the Best Picture, before Moonlight was clarified to be the winner two minutes after. Nevertheless, there were many awe-inspiring and stunning moments that saw the award presentation of 24 categories at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.
Televised by ABC in the United States and hosted by Jimmy Kimmel for the first time, it also saw Moonlight, the first film with an all-black cast to win three awards, including Best Picture. La La Land won the most awards at the ceremony with six after receiving 14 nominations. Hacksaw Ridge and Manchester by the Sea won two awards each. Winners with one award include Arrival, and Where to Find Them, Fences, The Jungle Book, O.J. : Made in America, Piper, The Salesman, Sing, Suicide Squad, The White Helmets, and Zootopia. Emma Stone won Best Actress in La La Land and Casey Affleck as Best Actor in Manchester by the Sea.
The infamous red carpet walk includes Jessica Biel with her metallic gown by Kaufman Franco, Emma Stone’s glamorous golden gown by Givenchy, Ruth Negga in a long-sleeved Valentino gown, Brie Larson looking sexy in a shapely black dress, Viola Davis in her red Armani Prive, and Kirsten Dunst in a Dior gown. As for men, Pharrell Williams was all about Chanel, Sunny Pawar – the actor in Lion – in awesome cuteness with bow tie and yellow kicks, and Casey Affleck’s mountain man look cleans up nicely in Louis Vuitton.
第89届奥斯卡颁奖典礼再次成为焦点新闻，原因竟然是一起乌龙插曲：“爱乐之城” (La La Land) 被误宣布为最佳影片得主，但真正的获奖者应该是“月光男孩” (Moonlight) 。但是，在好莱坞的杜比剧院举行的24个类别奖项的颁奖典礼，依旧有许多令人敬畏和惊叹的时刻。
由美国ABC电视台转播，喜剧演员 Kimmy Kimmel 首次担任主持，而这也是第一部电影是全黑人演员演出，并赢得3个奖项，包括最佳影片。“爱乐之城”也在14项提名中赢得6项大奖。“血战钢锯岭” (Hacksaw Ridge) 和“海边的曼彻斯特” (Manchester by the Sea) 分别获得2个奖项。至于其他获奖者包括“爱乐之城” (Arrival) , “神奇动物在哪里” (Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them) , “藩篱” (Fences) , “奇幻森林” (The Jungle Book), “辛普森：美国制造” (O.J. : Made in America) , “鹬” (Piper) , “推销员” (The Salesman), “校合唱团的秘密” (Sing), “X特遣队” (Suicide Squad) , 白头盔 (The White Helmets) 和“疯狂动物城” (Zootopia)。演出“爱乐之城”的 Emma Stone 获得最佳女主角，而 Casey Affleck 以 “海边的曼彻斯特”赢得最佳男主角。

The winds of change in the New York air and a new desire for easy elegant gold jewelry inspired the Cartier Mansion workshop to introduce the Love bracelet in 1969. It immediately captured the hearts of long-time clients including the Duchess of Windsor and Elizabeth Taylor and new ones such as movie stars Ali MacGraw and Julie Andrews. A couple of years later, Cartier- New York followed up the instantly iconic Love bracelet with another modern hardware concept, a gold Nail bracelet later named Juste un Clou.
