Academy Awards 2015: Entire Winners List Feat. Birdman, Julianne Moore, Eddie Redmayne [VIDEO]
It's finally a wrap, and the entire winners list of the 2015 Academy Awards is out now, with a few surprises but mostly in line with the predictions.
The award for the Best Film category went to Birdman, and while there is cause for celebration, some critics are riled at the Academy's decision in ignoring Boyhood. Everybody had predicted that it would be a close match between Birdman and Boyhood, but there definitely seemed like more people in the media fraternity were rooting for Boyhood. Slate's culture editor has already written up his lament about the Boyhood snub in a piece titled: The Academy's Failure to Recognize Boyhood Is Their Worst Mistake In 20 Years.
Meanwhile, Eddie Redmayne's assured win has also ruffled a few feathers as many were hoping Michael Keaton would get his due for a lifetime performance playing a washed up superhero actor Riggan Thomson. Redmayne won for portraying Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything.
Another contentious award was that for Best Adapted Screenplay which was picked up by The Imitation Game. A bunch of critics joked about the screenwriter's speech being much better than the screenplay itself.
The Oscars agreed with the Golden Globes on a few wins this year like Best Actor, Best Actress, Supporting Actor and Actress. Although in the category of best actor and actress, the Golden Globes also awarded Keaton and Amy Adams in the sub category of performances in a Musical or Comedy.
