Oscars 2015: Birdman Wins Top Honours

oscars-05It was a night full of fun, surprises, tears, disappointments and wins; well we are talking about the Oscars 2015 that have just concluded.

Birdman tied with The Grand Budapest Hotel at the top of the academy’s league table, with both films taking four Oscars each, although the latter scored in less prominent categories.

It was a night of disappointment for Boyhood, which would have left empty handed if Patricia Arquette had not picked up the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress.

Patricia Arquette used her acceptance speech stage to demand equal pay for women, a sore point in Hollywood since hacked Sony emails confirmed that even A-list stars such as Jennifer Lawrence suffered discrimination. Meryl Streep stood and cheered the call.

American Sniper, which many fancied as the dark horse of this year’s race at the Oscars, wound up with just one award, for sound editing.

At the Oscars 2015, there was minor upset in the Foreign Language Film category, with Poland’s Ida trumping Russia’s Leviathan, both films which have stirred up some controversy in their homelands.

The host for this years Oscar ceremony, Neil Patrick Harris, alluded to the controversy with a joke at the beginning of the night and said, “Tonight we honour Hollywood’s best and whitest, I mean brightest. The vast majority of the six thousand two hundred and ninety two voting members of the academy are white and male.”
