Oscar Winners 2015: The Complete List

The 87th Oscars ended with a flourish tonight as Fox Searchlight’s Birdman won Best Picture, one of four of its victories on the night. Fellow Searchlight pic The Grand Budapest Hotel also had four wins. The marquee acting categories ended up going the most likely directions, with The Theory Of Everything‘s Eddie Redmayne and Still Alice‘s Julianne Moore taking Best Actor and Best Actress and Patricia Arquette of Boyhood and JK Simmons from Whiplash taking the Supporting Actress categories — all four were the clear favorites going in.

  1. You gotta be kidding me? American Sniper got snubbed ? It lookes like it wasn’t even recognized last night at the Oscars! It was a winner. It gets “my Oscar”, hands down!!

  2. For the 10th straight year in a row, I did not watch the stupid Oscars because it is, without a doubt, fixed. The winners already knew they won, they just act surprised….BECAUSE THEIR ACTORS!!!!!! More proof is the list of winners I just read. Totally fixed!!!! American Sniper was by far the best movie and Bradly Cooper was outstanding. Heck, it should have swept the Oscars. But as I’ve said numerous times before and will continue to say it…Its all about who has the deeper pockets to pay off the right people to get the ward. Plain and simple. Hollywood is dead!!!

    1. Hollywood GOT IT RIGHT! The reason their is so much violence on the streets is because movies like that place seeds of violence into those who do not know better. There is much documented proof on that,

  3. Why be surprised. The Oscars always reflect the political views of the academy membership and that means people like Clint Eastwood and subject that celebrate American exceptionalism will ALWAYS be ignored. The show itself is awful, the performances and lame attempts at humor are sickening. The ego driven self congratulatory nature of the program and the awards is sickening. Thank goodness for the “off” button.

  4. It was purely a gratuitous exercise in narcissistic PC oblivion. In over 50 years of film going, I’ve only walked out of four films … “Grand Hotel” was the last … and I didn’t even consider attending “Birdman.” Essentially the Oscars have become the magical evening the insecure tell each other they are ‘hip’ and ‘relevant.’ The shutout of what was clearly one of the greatest films of all time, American Sniper, is simply another proof of the disconnect between the industry and reality.

  5. American Sniper won achievement in sound editing. They mananged to fit the film in there somehow. Isn’t that good enough?

    1. you are a douchebag. Clint did a great job, Bradley did a great job, you have no respect for the heros who enable your abilty to speak freely as an American.

  6. The ”Whirled Nuts’ crowd certainly is taking the multiple losses of its vanity film well. If you were following the trends throughout awards season, you would have seen that the film never stood a chance to garner any substantial awards.

  7. I do agree with winner oscar,because of birdman one of the good
    Script,good camera,and new idea story
