‘La La Land’ Producer Hopes He and ‘Moonlight’ Director Showed ‘We Can Be Better… Kinder’

Friday, March 3, 2017

The 2017 Academy Awards will forever be remembered for one of the biggest screw-ups in Oscars history. In the final moments, due to a series of major errors by accounting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers, ‘La La Land’ was mistakenly named Best Picture, when in fact the winner was acclaimed drama “Moonlight.”

But alongside the “what the hell happened?!” drama emerged another narrative — the comity and community spirit fostered by “Moonlight” director Barry Jenkins and “La La Land” producer Jordan Horowitz. While chaos dominated the Oscars stage and even host Jimmy Kimmel seemed unsure what to do, Horowitz ran to the Mic, told the “Moonlight” team they’d actually won, congratulated them and held the card to the camera to prove it to the world.

Afterward and throughout the night, Jenkins and Horowitz were photographed celebrating together and demonstrating there were no hard feelings, and since then they’ve had nothing but nice things to say about one another. The two have been faving each others tweets and complimenting each other all week. While many have expressed concern that the historic nature of the “Moonlight” win has been eclipsed by the way it won, Jenkins and Horowitz have become hollywood’s favorite examples of professional and personal amity.

Jordan is clearly aware that the world is watching, and so it is tonight, while taking questions from followers on Twitter, he expressed his hope that what he and Jenkins went through and how they handled it, set a good example for the industry. “I am hopeful that all of us — teams LLL and Moonlight — demonstrated that we can be better, more generous, and kinder,” he said.
