winners//87TH ACADEMY AWARDS

AWARDS COVERAGE



It's the most wonderful time of the year. The world's biggest stars have walked the world's most famous red carpet and the world's most famous award has gone to some of 2014's best films. Birdman and Boyhood went into the evening as the frontrunners, with the former edging out 4 wins, including Best Picture. Director Alejandro G. Inarritu became the second Mexican director in a row to win Best Director. And, Julianne Moore can finally be referred to as an Academy Award winner. While I was expecting the end results to be a bit different, 2014 was a great year for film and I'm pleased with the winners listed below (especially because I correctly predicted 16 of the 24 categories).
