The Academy Awards also known as Oscars are the oldest entertainment ceremony. The Oscars kicked off these last couple of days, since everyone and everything was about predictions in the different categories, red carpet, winners, speeches, stars etc. The 87th annual Academy Awards took place in Los Angeles and were hosted by the How I Met Your Mother star, Neil Patrick Harris. As BBC states his debut turn as Oscar host was one of the most forgettable for years although he made an appearance referring to a scene in Birdman appearing in “tighty whiteys.”
Julianne Moore won the best actress Oscar for Still Alice, while British actor Eddie Redmayne was picked best actor for playing famous physician Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything movie. Birdman and Budapest won all the awards, four Oscars each. Pawel Pawlikowski’s latest movie Ida won the Academy Award for foreign language film, while the marvelous Boyhood only picked up the best supporting actress award which went to Patricia Arquette. After his last year “Adele Dazeem” blunder John Travolta was once again under the spotlight. Idina Menzel took to the stage and got revenge by saying “Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome to the stage my very dear friend Glom Gazingo.” Lady Gaga did her best Julie Andrews impersonation by singing “My Favorite Things”. One of the most emotional moments of the night was John Legend and Common performing their song “Glory” from the movie Selma. The team behind The Lego Movie, while performing “Everything is Awesome” made sure people in the crowd got Lego Oscars. All in all it was an amazing night aired from Hollywood’s Dolby Theatre.
