7 Times The 'Moonlight' Cast Personified #BlackBoyJoy
They won the popular vote and the award season. It was lit.
The 2017 Oscars was a rollercoaster of emotions. The fashion, the speeches, the jokes, all moments that will be talked about for weeks to come. The biggest moment was the mix up with the announcement of Best Picture originally going to La La Land when it was meant from Moonlight. Thankfully the mistake was handled immediately and the Moonlight cast and crew got their moment to shine.
Ask anybody and they'll tell you that this beautiful cast and crew won the popular vote of the award season, inspiring this year's Oscar hashtag #OscarsSoMoonLit. Here are our favorite moments of the cast and crew exuding #BlackBoyJoy and we can't get enough.
