The Oscars are always a fun night in Hollywood, in which some of the industry's biggest names get all dressed up in sparkly outfits to celebrate and honour some of the finest achievements from the past year in cinema. Chris Rock hosted the annual awards ceremony and there were plenty of jabs at the whole #OscarsSoWhite ordeal, of course; DiCaprio FINALLY won his long, overdue gong and John Travolta did something unusual as always (well, we presume he did anyway); BB-8, R2-D2 and C-3PO all came on stage because Star Wars slays and we just can't get enough of them (Ep. VIII hype, woo!) it was just a fun, enjoyable night of celebration.
Spotlight was in the spotlight, taking home the big Best Picture prize (sorry The Revenant fans, the film can't win everything) and there was a bit of an upset - in my personal opinion, anyway - as Mark Rylance beat out Sylvester Stallone; I was looking forward to hearing his inspiring speech, or at least trying to somewhat comprehend his probably inspirational mumble (we only tease you because we love you really Sly). However, the big winner of the night was Mad Max: Fury Road, which was unstoppable and furious, taking home 6 awards - sweeping all the technical prizes. Witness it.
