Los Angeles Hollywood star Denzel Washington lost out on the best actor award to Casey Affleck at the Academy Awards, which saw India-themed drama Lion, Hidden Figures, and Hell or High Water return home empty-handed despite multiple nominations.

A number of people had predicted that Washington will be given the top acting honour for his performance in Fences, particularly after he nabbed the SAG Award for best actor. Hidden Figures went into the Oscars up for three awards, including the top prize of best picture, where some suspected the film about African-American women working at NASA could pull off an upset.

That film, last month, had won the SAG Awards' equivalent of best picture outstanding performance by a cast in a motion picture over best picture Oscar winner Moonlight and almost-winner "La La Land", which wasn't nominated for the ensemble award.

Also going home empty-handed after this year's Oscars were Dev Patel-starrer Lion, up for six awards; Hell or High Water, nominated for four; Jackie, up for three; and two-time nominees Deepwater Horizon, Florence Foster Jenkins, Kubo and the Two Strings, Moana, Passengers and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

Meanwhile, Arrival only won one award, for best sound editing, after receiving eight nominations, tied with Moonlight, which won three awards, for the second-most nominations this year.
