Full List Of Winners At The 87th Academy Awards

Neil Oscars EV

The 87th Annual Academy Awards took place last night and ‘Birdman‘ was the bigger winner!

In what was seen as the most open field Best Picture category in recent years the Michael Keaton lead comedy-drama managed to take home the big prize.

Others wins for the film included Best Director, Best Original Screenplay and Best Cinematography.

The Grand Budapest Hotel‘ also managed four wins in various technical categories.

Acting wise the four favourites Julianne Moore (Still Alice), Eddie Redmayne (The Theory of Everything), Patricia Arquette (Boyhood) and J.K. Simmons (Whiplash) all collected their gold statutes for their acclaimed performances.

John Legend and Common were the proud winners of Best Original Song for ‘Glory‘ the track taken from the movie ‘Selma‘. It had seemed like these two were everywhere this award season, so it’s nice to see their hard work deservedly pay off!

Host Neil Patrick Harris generally received mixed reviews for his work (which seems to be the pattern for most hosts in recent time…), however performances by the likes of Jennifer Hudson and Lady Gaga (who performed a tribute to ‘The Sound of Music‘) were praised.

The ceremony also came under criticism for not including the late comedian and actress Joan Rivers in their In Memoriam segment. For years Joan played a heavy part during award seasons as the host of the red carpet specials, so it was a shame to see the Academy not acknowledge her contribution to the extravaganza that is the Oscars.

Other highlights of the night included Patricia Arquette and her speech about gender equality amongst pay. While she did read her entire speech of a piece of paper, the heartfelt and honest words were well received by the audience, with the camera even panning to the likes of Meryl Streep and Jennifer Lopez who were both in support of Arquette.
