The 89th Academy Awards ceremony, presented by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS), honored the best films of 2016 and took place on February 26, 2017, at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, Los Angeles, 5:30 p.m. PST (8:30 p.m. EST). During the ceremony, AMPAS presented Academy Awards (commonly referred to as Oscars) in 24 categories. The ceremony, televised in the United States by ABC, was produced by Michael De Luca and Jennifer Todd. Television host Jimmy Kimmel hosted the ceremony for the first time.

Unfortunately, during the announcement for Best Picture, the wrong picture was announced as La La Land. Actors, Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway, were handed the wrong card and had to come out during the acceptance speech to say that the actual winner was Moonlight. People at first thought it was a joke but host, Jimmy Kimmel did confirm.

In related events, the Academy held its 8th Annual Governors Awards ceremony at the Grand Ballroom of the Hollywood and Highland Center on November 12, 2016. On February 11, 2017, in a ceremony at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Beverly Hills, California, the Academy Awards for Technical Achievement will be presented.
