The 88th Academy Awards celebrated from the Hollywood Dolby Theatre, put the “spotlight” on the Best Picture & Original Screenplay by Tom McCarthy & Josh Singer, honored Mad Max: Fury Road with 6 awards, and finally awarded Leonardo DiCaprio what he deserved most, namely the Best Actor award for The Revenant. There was also a shocker, everyone expected Sylvester Stallone to win the best supporting actor for his role in Creed as Rocky Balboa, but Mark Rylance won the award for his role in Bridge of Spies.

Michael Sugar, producer of Spotlight, the winner of the Best Picture, expressed his hope after winning the award: “This film gave a voice to survivors,” he said, “and this film amplifies that voice, which we hope will become a choir that will resonate all the way to the Vatican. James Bond film Spectre won Best Song with “The Writing’s on the Wall”.

Finally, DiCaprio won an Oscar, which made movie lovers around the world happy. DiCaprio shared his concern for the environment in his acceptance speech: “Climate change is real. It is happening right now; we had to go to the top of South America to find snow. … It is the most urgent threat facing our entire species.” He warned against gambling with the environment. “We must support the leaders around the world who speak for indigenous peoples, for humanity, the voices drowned out by the politics of greed. Do not take this planet for granted… I do not take this night for granted. I thank you.”

In the other main categories, Brie Larson accepted the award for Best Actress for her work in Room and, as expected, Alicia Vikander won the award for Best Supporting Actress for her performance in The Danish Girl.

The 88th Academy Awards was presented in 24 categories, hosted by Chris Rock, the actor who also hosted the 77th Awards in 2005. During the ceremony Chris Rock joked about the #OscarsSoWhite controversy: “You’re damn right Hollywood is racist. If they nominated hosts, I wouldn’t even get this job,” he said. “They would be watching Neil Patrick Harris right now.” He pointed out why black people in the ’60s didn’t worry about the Oscars: “Blacks didn’t protest because we had real things to protest back then. We were too busy getting raped and lynched to care about Best Cinematography.
