Mark Rylance wins Actor in a Supporting Role for “Bridge of Spies.” He also gave the cutest acceptance speech ever.
Epic performance by The Weeknd making Canada proud. One of the best performances of “Earned It” that he’s every done. Beautiful and classy set design. Nothing but the very best at the Oscars of course.
YAY “INSIDE OUT” DESERVES THIS OSCAR. Amazing animated movie. So creative. They took home the award for Best Animated Feature.
Best Animated Short goes to “Bear Story.” So I assume this is the story of the bear from “The Revenant”?

ALICIA VAKANDER wins Best Actress in the Supporting Role for “The Danish Girl.” Does this mean Eddie Redmayne will win Best Actor?!

Super excited that “The Big Short” won for Best Adapted Screenplay. That script was incredible.
“Spotlight” wins Original Screenplay. So proud. Great movie.
Chris Rock has really made a statement during this opening monologue.
“We want opportunity. We want black actors to get the same opportunities as white actors. And not just once!”
Chris Rock coming in hot and already bringing up the Oscar boycott. Bringing up a VERY good question, “Why this Oscars?! It’s the 88th Academy Awards.”
