The 87th Academy Awards were handed out Sunday, February 22nd at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood. Here is a complete list of all the nominees and the winners as they were announced.
When it comes to awards show red carpets there is actually an advantage to getting there early. It used to be the sign of a big star was arriving fashionably late so you'd be interviewed on the red carpet shows right before the main telecast began. In today's world of social media, arriving earlier can mean creating a trend that can be remembered hours into the show and beyond. And arriving too late? Well, sometimes it means no one sees how fabulous you look until the show starts (and that might not make your dress designer happy).
Better late than never on filing a report from yesterday's Spirit Awards and pre-Oscar festivities, I guess. It was a late night, Harvey Weinstein and his peeps rounding things out with a big soiree/dinner that drew to a close around midnight, so my bed was far more enticing than my keyboard when I got back to the homestead.
SANTA MONICA — There was some faint hope that this year's Spirit Awards would provide us with a number of winners we aren't expecting to see on Oscar Sunday. Unfortunately, outside of a Screenplay win for "Nightcrawler" and some categories that aren't part of the Academy Awards mix (we're looking at you Best First Screenplay), it simply wasn't meant to be. J.K. Simmons, Patricia Arquette, Julianne Moore, "Boyhood" and "Birdman" took all the major awards just as they will at the Academy Awards. Considering it was the 30th installment of the Spirit Awards, an upset or two would have made the afternoon much more memorable. As for the show itself? Well, does "not bad" count as a response?
The list of winners at the 30th Independent Spirit Awards confirmed that a number of Oscar nominees are shoo-ins for the biggest awards of the evening.
At the 30th Independent Spirit Awards, Julianne Moore balked when asked where she planned to put her Oscar if she (expectedly) picks one up on Sunday.
"One day at a time, man," she laughed.
Patricia Arquette has swept awards season for her supporting performance in "Boyhood," which famously took 12 years to film, but she used her Independent Spirit Award win to set the record straight about exactly how long Richard Linklater's indie epic took to assemble.
The 30th annual Film Independent Spirit Awards were presented Saturday from a tent on the beach in Santa Monica. Check out the full list of winners below.
The secret to a great Oscars telecast is not a perfect set of winners or speeches; it's the fabulous Oscar presenters who really carry the whole thing.
The 40th annual César Awards (i.e., the French Oscar equivalent) were bestowed in Paris Friday, with "Timbuktu" claiming top honors. The film, Oscar-nominated in the foreign category as Mauritania's first-ever submission, won seven awards overall and is seen as a potential spoiler at the Oscars on Sunday.
