2015 Oscars Winners

by

The 87th Annual Academy Awards honored some of the most remarkable films, actors, and directors to date at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles last night. As predicted, films Birdman and The Grant Budapest Hotel reigned supreme, and an extremely excited (and humble!) Eddie Redmayne took home the award for Best Actor in a Leading Role for his portrayal of Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything.

Stand-out performances included Lady Gaga giving tribute to The Sound of Music for its 50th anniversary (complete with a tear-jerking hug with Julie Andrews herself), Common and John Legend performing “Glory” (thus making David Oyelowo and Chris Pine cry), and Jennifer Hudson performing “I Can’t Let Go” during the In Memoriam segment.


Other note-worthy moments included Patricia Arquette’s acceptance speech about equal rights. “To every woman who gave birth, to every taxpayer and citizen of this nation, we have fought for everybody else’s equal rights,” she said. “It’s time to have wage equality once and for all. And equal rights for women in the United States of America.”
