And the Oscar goes to... Spotlight

Dear Spotlight, it was you all along. We had fun with all these momentary flings with The Revenant and The Big Short, but we were always meant to come back to our one true love.
As you surely know by now, Spotlight won the top prize in an eventful Oscar ceremony, which featured its fair share of upsets, topical humor and a lot of Mad Max: Fury Road. Indeed, George Miller's action extravaganza took home a whopping 6 statues, compared to Spotlight's paltry pair of wins for Picture and Screenplay. The main talking points on film twitter however, were Leo DiCaprio's win for Best Actor (capped by a wonderful speech) and the shocking surprises of Mark Rylance beating Sylvester Stallone and "Writings on the Wall" topping "Til It Happens To You", especially after Lady Gaga's powerful performance. But hey, you win some, you lose some. I certainly didn't do much winning with my predictions, putting up my worst showing yet (17 out of 24 correct). Maybe next year I'll finally get that elusive 100% score.
Until then, I'm looking forward to another great year for film, hopefully with more diversity (yes, I had to stick that in there). Here are your Oscar winners for 2015:

  1. No matter what type of Michael Kors Bags Outlet each individual got, they all had one thing in common. We all know that getting something on sale is like winning a mini lottery, but to find a name brand handbag like Michael Kors Black Friday Sale for instance, discounted is like a slice of heaven on earth. I have personally attacked my husband with hugs and kisses when finding Official Coach Outlet Online at discounted prices.

    Michael Kors Factory Outlet stores can be found in malls all over. MK Outlet and other Coach merchandise can also be found in some boutiques. Inspired by the same material baseball gloves are made from, these Coach Bags On Sale Online are versatile and stylish. Since it's conception, the Michael Kors Handbags Outlet has been produced into a variety of designs, colors, shapes, and styles that have won top pick of millions of women the world over.

    New Michael Kors Bags are the most sought after handbag. Since Coach Outlet Online is one of the most recognized name brands in the world of fashion, you will find A-list celebrities down to small girls wearing them.
