And the Oscar goes to... Birdman

After a night of fabulous speeches and stirring music performances, the awards season has finally come to a close. Neil Patrick Harris was surprisingly lame, but everything else was so thrilling that for me, it didn't fully register how hard he was flopping. Perhaps it was the quality of the winners too, as I was so happy to see so many deserving artists get some love. On top of them all was my #1 film of the year Birdman, winning Picture, Director, Original Screenplay and Cinematography. Congrats! If you follow me on twitter, you'll know that I did fairly well on my predictions too, guessing 19 out of 24. So all in all, it was a very pleasant night for me. I'm looking forward to doing this all over again next year. Here are your Oscar winners for 2014:
