If you click on the awards for La La Land, the page shows that La La Land won the Oscar for Best Picture.



If you click through the 2017 link, it correctly shows Moonlight is the best picture.

Dan, 

If you look at the picture I posted, it most definitely looks like it is in the Won Oscar. At best, this is a terrible layout because I cannot tell where the wins end and the Nominated starts. (Okay, I can see the box if you blow it up to about 300% of the original. The boxes need to be more visible. Edit: The box is no clearer on Firefox.)

I would think the "Nominated for Oscars" starts at "Best Achievement in Costume Design" but that can't be because Ryan Gosling didn't win Best Actor. There needs to be a clear delineation of where the wins in and the nominations begin.

Hi Adrian,

I looked at what you posted and also looked at the web page. Although the format may not be clear, La La Land is clearly in the "Nominated for Oscars".

It's obviously not "clear" if I can't seen the box at normal size on a 24" monitor. If it were clear, then I wouldn't have posted in the first place. It's a terrible design if you have to blow up to 3 times the normal version in order to even see the boxes surrounding to "wins" and "nominations". The lines are way to thin and of a nearly transparent grey. That's just not good design.
