Celebrated from Hollywood’s Dolby Theatre, the 88th Academy Awards spotted the “Spotlight” with the Best Picture & Original screenplay of Tom McCarthy & Josh Singer; honored Mad Max: Fury Road with 6 awards and finally gave Leonardo DiCaprio what he deserved the most, the Best Actor for The Revenant. There was a shocker too, everyone expected Sylvester Stallone to win the best supporting actor for his acting in Creed as Rocky Balboa but Mark Rylance won the award for his role in Bridge of Spies.

Winner of the Best Picture, Spotlight’s producer, Michael Sugar, resonated his hope upon winning the award, “This film gave a voice to survivors,” he said, “And this film amplifies that voice, which we hope will become a choir that will resonate all the way to the Vatican.” James Bond film, Spectre made its spectacular “Writing’s on the Wall,” by winning the best song.

Finally, DiCaprio won an Oscar which made the cinema lovers happy worldwide. Caprio shared his environmental concern in his acceptance speech, “Climate change is real. It is happening right now; we needed to go to the tip of South America to find snow. … It is the most urgent threat facing our entire species,” He cautioned not to play with the environment, “We need to support leaders around the world who speak for indigenous people, for humanity, the voices who have been drowned out by the politics of greed. Do not take this planet for granted. … I do not take this night for granted. Thank you.”

In the other major categories, Brie Larson took away the Best actress award for her work in Room and as expected Alicia Vikander won the award as the Best supporting actress for her performance in The Danish Girl.

The 88th Academy Awards were presented in 24 categories which weas hosted by Chris Rock, the actor who had also hosted the 77th Awards in 2005. During the ceremony, Chris Rock joked about #OscarsSoWhite controversy, ‘You’re damn right Hollywood is racist. If they nominated hosts, I wouldn’t even get this job,” he said. “You’d be watching Neil Patrick Harris right now.” He pointed out why in 60s blacks were not worried about the Oscars, “black people did not protest because we had real things to protest at the time. We were too busy being raped and lynched to worry about best cinematography.”
