2019 was an important year in film. From big-budget blockbusters such as “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” and “Avengers: Endgame,” to biopics such as “Rocketman” and “Harriett,” audiences were entranced by stellar performances and original stories, as well as cutting-edge visual effects. On Feb. 9, the 92nd Academy Awards were held, and historic achievements were made that left members in the audience and viewers watching at home astonished.
“And the Oscar goes to… ‘La La Land’.” Audiences remember that infamous moment when Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway announced the wrong Best Picture Award at the 89th Academy Awards. While this year’s ceremony steered clear of major flubs, long runtimes and political jokes made for a major drop in ratings, “down 20 percent compared to the 2017 numbers, averaging 26.5 million viewers” according to Fox News.
