And the Oscar Goes to…

2015 Oscars

The winners of the category for “Best Original Screenplay”: Alejandro G. Iñárritu, Nicolás Giacobone, Alexander Dinelaris, Jr., Armando Bo (Birdman).

Sunday night marked the 87th Academy Awards – a night where Hollywood’s leading actors, directors, and other film industry insiders gathered to celebrate the roles and movies that shaped 2014. This year’s Academy Awards, also known as The Oscars, received a lot of criticism for the lack of diversity represented in the nominees, and reportedly had the lowest ratings in years. This won’t stop the Academy from giving out Oscars annually to the talented people working in film, but with any luck it will make members of the Academy think more critically about diversity in film moving forward.

Without further ado, here are the winners of the 2015 Academy Awards:
