And the Oscar Goes To: A Complete List of Winners

On Sunday Feb. 22 Neil Patrick Harris was our tour guide through the biggest night in Hollywood. Some people celebrated, some people cried and still others just thought “everything was awesome.” Actors, actresses and directors all clung to their Lego Oscar statues, hoping that their name would be called after those $200 envelopes were opened. America held its breath to see who would be named the best. Here is a complete list of who was chosen by the academy as the representatives of the best in this year’s American cinema, and next year’s votes for who will be considered at the top of their game.

Visual Effects: “Interstellar”

Sound Mixing: “Whiplash”

Sound Editing: “American Sniper”

Live Action Short: “The Phone Call”

Animated Short: “Feast”

Documentary Short: “Crisis Hotline: Veterans Press 1”

Production Design: “The Grand Budapest Hotel”

Best Original Song: “Glory” from the movie “Selma”

Best Original Score: “The Grand Budapest Hotel”

Makeup and Hairstyling: “The Grand Budapest Hotel”

Costume Design: “The Grand Budapest Hotel”

Cinematography: “Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)”

Film Editing: “Whiplash”

Best Foreign Language Film: “Ida”

Best Documentary Feature Film: “CitizenFour”

Best Animated Feature Film: “Big Hero 6”

Best Director: Alejandro G. Inarritu for “Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)”

Best Adapted Screenplay: “The Imitation Game”

Best Original Screenplay: “Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)”

Best Actor in a Supporting Role: J.K. Simmons for his role in “Whiplash”

Best Actress in a Supporting Role: Patricia Arquette for her role in “Boyhood”

Best Actor in a Leading Role: Eddie Redmayne for his role in “The Theory of Everything”

Best Actress in a Leading Role: Julianne Moore for her role in “Still Alice”

And last but certainly not most least, Best Picture: “Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)”

There were tears, there were laughs and there were exchanges of hate glares (Richard Linklater to Alejandro G. Inarritu). “Birdman” and “The Grand Budapest Hotel,” who were both tied for nine nominations, ended the night tied, again, with four wins each. “Whiplash,” which was seen as kind of an underdog of the Oscars blew everyone away by taking home three wins. “Boyhood” was let down with its singular statue. Congratulations to all the winners, and I hope they choose more wisely next year with their guaranteed places on the academy when it comes to “Best Animated Film.” Maybe Disney won’t win one of these years.
