Academy Awards 2016 Winners
The Academy Awards, or Oscars, an awards ceremony that needs to names and Hollywood's biggest night has declared the best movies and performances of the year.
Spotlight took home the biggest award of the night with a win of Best Picture. I enjoyed Spotlight and found the movie incredibly moving.
Leonardo Dicaprio won Best Actor for his role in The Revenant, and Alejandro Inarritu won Best Director for the film.
Brie Larson took home the trophy for Best Actress for her performance in Room. This award was the easiest to predict since her performance outshown all the rest.
Mark Rylance won for Best Supporting Actor for his role in Steven Spielberg's Bridge of Spies.
Alicia Vikander won Best Supporting Actress for her emotionally gripping performance in The Danish Girl.
Mad Max Fury Road took home six technical awards including Best Costume, Best Editing, Best Sound Mixing, and others. I wish this movie had won more bigger awards but still it was highly recognized.
The show addressed the controversy and turned it into humor with host Chris Rock. Some of the jokes were funny and others were awkward. The 88th Oscars has been decided and I look forward to another year of great movies!
