So, the Oscars are over for another year. While this was one of the longest ceremonies in recent memory, the fact that it was an unpredictable Oscar race kept it interesting throughout. Birdman took out four big awards, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay, and Best Cinematography (the second time in a row for Chivo). The Grand Budapest Hotel won four technical awards, including Best Costume Design for Anderson’s long-time collaborator Milena Canonero, and Best Original Score to dual-nominated Alexandre Desplat. Whiplash took home three, including Best Supporting Actor to JK Simmons and Best Film Editing.
