It was a clean sweep for “Moonlight” which took home Best Feature, Best Screenplay, the Audience Award (Voted By The Public) and a special award for it’s amazing ensemble. Many expected “Manchester By The Sea” to at least win for Screenplay but it was not meant to be. Affleck’s nomination in Best Actor seems secured while Huppert made a strong case as to why she deserves to be recognized for her daring work in “Elle.” It would be the legendary French actress’s first Oscar nomination. Thank you to all who followed me live blogging the ceremony on twitter. The race is officially on.
