Oscars 2016 - The Complete Winners List

The 88th Academy Awards took place last night, 28th February, once again at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, California. The ceremony, hosted by comedian Chris Rock, took aim at Hollywood’s diversity issues and varied from the expected to the surprising. The journalistic drama ‘Spotlight’ won Best Picture and Leonardo DiCaprio, arguably the biggest win of the night, took home his first Academy Award after the actor had been nominated four times previously.

Newspaper drama ‘Spotlight’, starring Mark Ruffalo, Rachel McAdams, Liev Schreiver and Michael Keaton, was the surprise Oscar winner of the night as it was named Best Picture. The journalism drama, about the Boston Globe reporters who uncovered the systemic abuse inside the Catholic Church was also award with Best Original Screenplay for co-writers Josh Singer and Tom McCarthy (who also directed the film).

‘The Revenant’ won three awards, including Best director for Alejandro Inarritu, Best cinematography for Emmanuel Lubezki and Best Actor for Leonardo DiCaprio.

Leonardo DiCaprio received a standing ovation as he picked up his first Academy Award for Best Actor while Indie queen Brie Larson took home the Best Actress Oscar for her performance as a kidnapped woman in drama ‘Room’.

Mark Rylance, to everyone’s surprise, won the award for Best Supporting Actor for Steven Spielberg's Cold War film ‘Bridge of Spies’, while the Swedish-born actress Alicia Vikander took home the award for Best Supporting Actress Oscar for ‘The Danish Girl’.

On the more technical categories ‘Ex Machina’ won Best Visual Effects and George Miller’s apocalyptic Road Warrior movie ‘Mad Max’ scored six awards, the most of the night: Best Costume Design, Best Production Design, Best Make-up and Hair Styling, Best Film Editing and Best Sound Editing.

Amy Winehouse documentary ‘Amy’ won the Best Documentary for British filmmakers Asif Kapadia and James Gay-Rees and Sam Smith won Best Original Song 'The Writing's on the Wall', the song he co-penned with Jimmy Napes for 'James Bond Spectre'.

The Appointment Group is extremely proud to see two of the films that TAG Global Film and Media have be involved in on their travel and post production being recognised and winning such important awards in the film industry. Congratulations to Alicia Vinkander for her Supporting Actress Award in ‘The Danish Girl’ and to the Visual Effects team in ‘Ex Machina’.
