2015 Oscar Winners

Posted on February 23, 2015 at 12:17 pm

Usually in the Oscars we see one film take a large number of the awards, but this year we’ve seen a very mixed bag winners. This despite there being such a strong reaction around the world to films like boyhood, which had a poor showing of only one win, but we saw a number of thought provoking dramas and biopics this year, which are what tend to do well during the Oscars.

So we saw films like The Theory of Everything, Birdman, the Grand Budapest Hotel, The Imitation Game and Still Alice receive some of the most sought after awards.

Julianne Moore finally won an Oscar for best Actress, on her fifth nomination, for her part in Still Alice, where she played a woman suffering from early onset Alzheimer’s disease.

Eddie Redmayne managed to take the Best Actor win for his portrayal of Stephen Hawking in the film The Theory of Everything – a film of Stephen Hawking beginning his academic life, finding love, and the start of his suffering of ALS.
