LOS ANGELES —"La La Land" (2016) was the belle of the ball coming into the 2017 Academy Awards ceremony, with its record-tying 14 nominations. Both "All About Eve" (1950) and "Titanic" (1997) also enjoyed 14 Oscar nods each, but La La Land had a legitimate chance to make history with the most wins ever. Eve took home six Oscars, while Titanic was the current record holder with 11 Academy Award victories. In the end, when the smoke cleared and the dust finally settled, La La Land took home more Academy Awards than any other film in 2017. But Damien Chazelle's inspired film couldn't topple Titanic's overwhelming record. However, the movie musical won six Oscars, which was more than any single motion picture of the evening. And La La Land tied Eve on the all-time list for second place.
Here is a complete list of all 24 winners of this year's Oscars:

ACTRESS IN A LEADING ROLE: Emma Stone in La La Land
