Can you believe it’s been five years since an embarrassing clerical snafu almost had the world thinking La La Land won Best Picture at the Oscars? It wouldn’t have been shocking for that film to win, especially because we all know Hollywood loves a movie about, well, Hollywood. But fortunately, someone grabbed the wrong envelope and the actual Best Picture winner was Moonlight, a gorgeous story about queer love and longing in Miami. Now, A24 is releasing a deluxe vinyl for the fifth anniversary of Moonlight’s Best Picture win and Best Original Score nomination.
"It’s been so exciting to revisit Moonlight with Barry and to now present this five-year anniversary edition deluxe vinyl,” Britell said in a release. “Working on Moonlight was a truly unforgettable journey for all of us, and we are thrilled to celebrate this five-year anniversary with such a special vinyl release."
“There was just this incredible sensitivity and tenderness and intimacy in the screenplay,” said Britell to NPR back in 2017. “When I first read it, I was just overwhelmed by this feeling of beauty and poetry.
And on March 2, you’ll get to hear the new stuff get the same treatment, when Houston's own Chopstar DJ Candlestick will be performing an extended chopped and screwed stream of the vinyl on NTS Radio Hour on March 2. You’ll be able to listen here. See more photos, ahead.
