And the Oscar goes to…

oscars-2016There was no clear run-away winner by the time last night’s Academy Award ceremony wrapped. Leo had finally won his Oscar, but his picture, The Revenant, failed to take home the top honour. Meanwhile, Best Picture winner Spotlight, did not pick up any other awards, save best original screenplay. The largest tally went to action darling Mad Max: Fury Road, though almost every honour was on the technical, costume, or make-up side. All in all, it was a fair and pleasant evening for all of the big pictures, save Brooklyn and Carol, and despite the controversy attached to the show in general.
