"Birdman" Tops the 2015 Oscars!  


And the awards season is officially over! Alejandro González Iñárritu's "Birdman" was the big winner at the 87th Academy Awards taking home the Best Picture, Director, Cinematography and Original Screenplay trophies. Its closest competition, "Boyhood," only managed one trophy for Best Supporting Actress for Patricia Arquette. Honestly? I still believe that "Boyhood" is a better picture but the Academy loves movies about themselves, hence "Birdman" took the top prize!

Wes Anderson's "The Grand Budapest Hotel" won Best Original Score, Costume Design, and Production Design while "Whiplash" received the Best Supporting Actor trophy for J.K. Simmons, Film Editing, and Sound Mixing.

Morten Tyldum's "The Imitation Game" won the Best Adapted Screenplay award with writer Graham Moore giving one of the night's best speeches about marching on and it does get better!

The one award that "Birdman" didn't take home was the Best Actor trophy. Michael Keaton lost out to Eddie Redmayne for "The Theory of Everything!" Everybody's favorite Best Actress, Julianne Moore, finally won the golden man with her performance for "Still Alice."

Neil Patrick Harris served as the host of the evening and opened the night with a show-stopping number along with Anna Kendrick and Jack Black. Many Twitter folks were upset about his Octavia Spencer joke though where he made her the guard of his Oscar predictions.
