Eddie Redmayne - Winner: Best Actor in a Leading Role: Oh my god. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you to the Academy. I don't think I'm capable of articulating quite how I feel right now. Please know this, I am fully aware that I am a lucky, lucky man. This, this Oscar... wow! This Oscar, this belongs to all of those people around the world battling ALS.

Upsets! Eddie clips the wings of Michael, yet "Birdman" flies over to top "Boyhood"!
5 March 2015 | by (Petersburg, Virginia) – See all my reviews

Well this years Oscars being the 87th Annual one was okay funny with one liners and jokes with song and dance from first time host Neil Patrick Harris, as it was cute little Lego awards were passed out! And true the show this year ran a little long as it made me tired still it was nice to see some veterans win like J.K. Simmons and Patricia Arquette who both thanked parents, people and women in their speeches. And Julianne Moore finally on her 5th try won an Oscar as her performance in "Still Alice" was a long beautiful farewell. However the big surprises were Michael Keaton a long overdue veteran losing best actor to Eddie Redmayne why did the academy members vote for the new kid on the block over the veteran? And however "Birdman" would gather it's wings back and fly over "Boyhood" in an upset for best picture. Well just when you think you know how the awards will go year in and out finally some upsets! Plus it was a fun treat to see John Travolta flirt with Idina Menzel, overall a good awards show with surprise drama with the best actor and best picture upsets!
