The Oscars have always been the biggest night of Hollywood. The 89th Academy award ceremony recently took place on 26th Feb 2017 at Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, Los Angeles. The ceremony ended up with a little goof up by announcing the wrong ‘best picture 2016’ but was soon corrected. From past many years Bollywood celebrities have also been attending the function and this time it was the sensational Priyanka Chopra who was grabbing all the limelight for all the right reasons.
The ceremony was hosted by the ever entertaining Jimmy Kimmel this year and he kept the audience’s funny bones tickled with his sometimes endearing and sometimes sarcastic brand of humour.
For those who missed out on the big night, here is a list of winners who took home the coveted trophies-
