The 2015 Oscar Winners

The 87th Annual Academy Award winners have been announced with “Birdman” being the big winner, taking Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay and Best Cinematography. Also faring well was “Whiplash” with three awards including Best Supporting Actor, and “The Grand Budapest Hotel” which nabbed four including ones for costume, make-up, score and production design.
