Complete List of Winners from the 2015 Oscars

Oscars

The annual Hollywood Mutual Admiration Society Extravaganza known as the Oscars was typical of the year it was rewarding: nothing dominated.  In a year with no clear cut Best Picture, the wealth was spread with Birdman winning Best Picture – overtaking early favorite Boyhood which won just one award- and leading the way with five Oscars (including three for Best Director Alejandro Gonzalez Innaritu) and Whiplash and The Grand Budapest Hotel each taking three awards. In fact, each of the eight pictures nominated for Best Picture each one at least one Oscar.  In the absence of The Lego Movie, Big Hero 6 (which any other year would be a fantastic choice) took Best Animated Feature.  JK Simmons and Patricia Arquette finished their year-long awards sweep in the supporting categories for Whiplash and Boyhood, respectively.  In the top acting categories Eddie Redmayne won for his portrayal of physicist Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything and Julianne Moore for playing an Alzheimer’s victim in Still Alice.

  1. I just have two or three – maybe four – things to say…

    1) WTF did Patricia Arquette do to deserve her Oscar?
    2) WTF did John Travolta do to his face?
    3) WTF was John Travolta doing to Idina Menzel?
    4) In fact, just WTF John Travolta??
