Birdman was honored with Best Picture at the 87th Annual Academy Awards, which took place tonight at the Dolby Theater in the Hollywood and Highland Center, hosted by Neil Patrick Harris. Birdman took home four Oscars tonight in total, winning for Best Picture, Best Director (Alejandro González Iñárritu), Best Original Screenplay (Alejandro González Iñárritu, Armando Bo, Alexander Dinelaris, Nicolás Giacobone) and Best Cinematography (Emmanuel Lubezki). The film also tied for the most wins of the night with The Grand Budapest Hotel, which won for Best Costume Design, Best Makeup and Hairstyling, Best Production Design and Best Original Score.
All eight of the Best Picture nominees walked home with at least one award. American Sniper won for Best Sound Editing (Alan Robert Murray and Bub Asman), Boyhood won for Best Supporting Actress (Patricia Arquette), The Imitation Game won for Best Adapted Screenplay (Graham Moore), Selma won for Best Original Song ("Glory" by John Legend and Common), The Theory of Everything won for Best Actor (Eddie Redmayne) and Whiplash won for Best Supporting Actor (J.K. Simmons), Best Editing (Tom Cross) and Best Sound Mixing (Craig Mann, Ben Wilkins and Thomas Curley).
There were more than a few surprises tonight, both in the awards and the show itself. Michael Keaton was considered the favorite to win Best Actor for Birdman, but he lost out to The Theory of Everything's Eddie Redmayne. There was also the surprise tribute to The Sound of Music, with musical performances by Lady Gaga and a special appearance by Julie Andrews. What do you think of this year's Oscar awards?
