Oscars Recap

by Val Mischka

This past Sunday was the biggest day in Hollywood, the 88th Academy Awards! There were many memorable moments, surprises, and laughs this year. Chris Rock hosted and did a fantastic job! Stacey Dash was the epitome of awkward, and Leo won! Here is a list of some of the big winners of the 88th Academy Awards:

Best Supporting Actress: Alicia Vikander (The Danish Girl)

Alicia Vikander is talented, stunning, and was definitely best dressed!


Best Supporting Actor: Mark Rylance (Bridge of Spies)

I have to say I did not see Bridge of Spies nor do I know anything about Mark Rylance, (I was rooting for Tom Hardy) but from what I have heard he gave a good performance.

Best Actress: Brie Larson (Room)

Brie Larson was a sure thing this year for her flawless performance in Room. Even though I thought Saoirse Ronan should have won for Brooklyn, I have to say Brie was incredible.

Alejandro G. Iñárritu won two years in a row! He is truly one of the most talented directors in the industry. If you haven’t seen Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) go watch it right now!


Best Cinematography: The Revenant

This was a well-deserved accolade for this fantastic film! The cinematography was breathtaking in every scene.

Best Original Song: Writing’s on the Wall (Spectre)

Sam Smith’s reaction was adorable! Writing’s on the Wall is amazing, and I would recommend adding it to your Spotify playlist.
