Oscar live

Eddie Redmayne accepts the Best Actor in a Leading Role Award for The Theory of Everything onstage during the 87th Annual Academy Awards at Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, California
 Here's Patrick Smith summing up: "Well, that was a massive upset. As much as I love the unhinged Birdman, which soars above the rest in terms of technical prowess, I was expecting the heartfelt Boyhood, shot in sequence across 12 years, and 39 filming days, to win both for Best Picture and Best Director. It would have been a fitting award for Linklater, a philosophical kind of film-maker whose movies always have a lovely, naturalistic feel to them. Dazed and Confused and the Before triptych, which he also directed, in particular, are gems. Thrilled for Grand Budapest Hotel, though, which won four awards. Julianne Moore, who’d been nominated four times in the past, was a welcome winner – her portrayal of a professor diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer's disease is unflashy and poignant. Slightly disappointed to see Michael Keaton miss out for Birdman. As Riggan Thomson, an actor famous for once wearing a superhero's cape, now trying to reignite his career on Broadway, Keaton reaps the benefits of some smart meta casting; he flits between bravado and vulnerability with tremendous panache."
05.23 Since we're handing out props, here's a prop for Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu for a whole load of great speeches (I reckon he wrote one and freestyled the rest); and here's another prop for Benedict Cumberbatch for drinking out of a hip flask; and here's another prop for all of you who stayed up to watch the Oscars. It's only, like, Monday morning anyway, you've got a whole week in the office to recover.
05.18 We've all had (literally) a minute to consider this year's Oscars winners and losers, so props to Tim Robey for this astute insta-assessment.
 "A crazy awards trajectory for the crazy, ingenious, naggingly hollow Birdman, which just took four Oscars – more than anyone expected, certainly when it was first unveiled. Will it stand the test of time better than Boyhood, which took one sole award for Best Supporting Actress? Only time can divulge that. At the moment, it's hard not to feel a bit sorry for Richard Linklater, whose long-game ambitions haven't been very generously rewarded tonight."
05.11 Birdman in a nutshell. Key for the water cooler chat tomorrow.
OscarsAnd the winner of the Oscar for Best Film is BIRDMAN.

"Maybe next year there'll be some immigration rules to the Academy - two Mexicans in a row is suspicious," director Alejandro G Inarritu quipped as he collected the Best Picture prize, referencing Alfonso Cuaron's best director win last year.
05.04 And it's the biggest award of the lot.
Here are the nominations for BEST FILM
American Sniper
The Grand Budapest Hotel
The Imitation Game
The Theory of Everything
Winner of the Best Actress award Julianne Moore
Julianne Moore said: "I read somewhere that winning an Oscar can lead to you living five years longer - if that's true, I'd like to thank the Academy as my husband is younger than me!"
OscarsAnd the winner of the Oscar for Best Actress is JULIANNE MOORE.
"Alright, alright, alright," Matthew McConaughey should have said. Well deserved, Julianne.

Eddie Redmayne, on picking up the Best Actor award, said: "I don't think I'm capable of articulating how I feel - I am fully aware I am a lucky, lucky man.
"This Oscar belongs to all those people around the world battling ALS," he said. "It belongs to one exceptional family - Stephen, Jane and the Hawking children - and I will be its custodian and I will look after him; I'll polish him and wait on him hand and foot."
He also described his Oscar as "a new fella coming to join our apartment".
OscarsAnd the winner of the Oscar for Best Actor is EDDIE REDMAYNE. THE BRITS ARE COMING!

04.45 This is a bit of a shock. The winner for Best Director has not gone to Richard Linklater but...
Oscars...the winner of the Oscar for Best Director is ALEJANDRO GONZALEZ INARRITU (Birdman)
Alejandro G Inarritu, a surprise winner for Best Director, revealed that he’s he’s wearing Michael Keaton’s "tighy whities” in his acceptance speech. He also paid tribute to his fellow nominees. "For someone to win, someone has to lose - but true art, true individual expression cannot be compared. Our work, as always will be judged by time."
Here are the nominations for BEST DIRECTOR
Wes Anderson (The Grand Budapest Hotel)
Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu (Birdman)
Richard Linklater (Boyhood)
Bennett Miller (Foxcatcher)
Morten Tyldum (The Imitation Game)
04.35 The awards are coming thick and fast now. The Oscar for Best Screenplay is handed to...
OscarsAnd the winner of the Oscar for Best Screenplay is THE IMITATION GAME.
Picking up his award, The Imitation Game's writer Graham Moore said: "Alan Turing never got to stand on a stage like this and look at these faces and I do - and that's the most unfair thing I've ever heard.
"So I want to use this moment to say this - when I was 16 I tried to kill himself because I felt like I didn't belong. Now I'm standing here, so I would like this moment to be for that person who feels weird or different. Stay weird and different and when you're up here, pass it along."
 Tim Robey"Imitation Game is a poor Adapted Screenplay choice. Whiplash should have got this. Graham Moore gave a sweet speech saying "Stay weird!", but the big problem with his script is that it's not nearly weird enough – it feels like the product of reading way too many screenwriting manuals. And it backs away from the really painful and private depths of Turing's story."
Here are the nominations for ADAPTED SCREENPLAY
Jason Hall (American Sniper)
Graham Moore (The Imitation Game)
Anthony McCarten (The Theory Of Everything)
Paul Thomas Anderson (Inherent Vice)
Damien Chazelle (Whiplash)
 "I thought Birdman would be too deranged for the Academy's tastes, but it's been rewarded here. The film, which taps into the psyche of a washed-up actor beset by hubris and insecurities, now has a real chance of beating Boyhood to Best Picture."
04.31 And the Oscar for Original Screenplay goes to...
OscarsAnd the winner of the Oscar for Original Screenplay isBIRDMAN.
Accepting the Oscar, Birdman director Alejandro G Inarritu thanked his fellow scriptwriters Nicolas Giacobone, Alexander Dinelaris, Jr and Armando Bo as he picked up the award for best original screenplay. "Three years ago, I invited them to follow me in a crazy idea - and because they are crazy, they did it." He also pays his dues to Michael Keaton, who “made this film fly”.
Here are the nominations for ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY
Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, Nicolas Giacobone, Alexander Dinelaris Jr, Armando Bo (Birdman)
Richard Linklater (Boyhood)
Foxcatcher (E. Max Frye and Dan Futterman and Bennett Miller Screenplay)
Wes Anderson and Hugo Guinness (The Grand Budapest Hotel)
Dan Gilroy (Nightcrawler)
OscarsAnd the winner of the Oscar for Original Score is THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL.
Here are the nominations for ORIGINAL SCORE
The Grand Budapest Hotel
Mr Turner
The Theory of Everything
The Imitation Game
04.19 Is nothing sacred? Am I hallucinating? Lady Gaga, would Julie Andrews wear a dress made of meat?
04.13 Oh Lord, help us. Lady Gaga is about to sing something from The Sound of Music. Standby for despairing commentary.
OscarsAnd the Oscar for Original Song goes to GLORY (SELMA)

 Patrick Smith on Glory: "Glory, written by John Stephens and Lonnie Lynn and performed by John Legend, was always a dead cert – it had already won at the Golden Globes and the Critic's Choice Awards. It'll also be considered something of a consolation prize for Selma, which is very, very unlikely to topple either Boyhood or Birdman in the Best Picture category."
04.05 John Travolta being very funny as he presents the Original Song Oscar after the Idina Menzel fiasco last year ("You do it," he says to Idina Menzel, as he opens the envelope).
Here are the nominations for ORIGINAL SONG
Everything is Awesome (The Lego Movie)
Glory (Selma)
Grateful (Beyond the Lights)
I'm not Gonna Miss You (Glenn Campbell: I’ll Be Me)
Lost Stars (Begin Again)
04.02 One of the Neil Patrick Harris’s best jokes tonight, this. “Benedict Cumberbatch is... the name you get when you ask John Travolta to pronounce ‘Ben Affleck’”, he says, referring to Travolta’s shocker last year when he mispronounced Idina Menzel's name.
04.00 John Legend and Common take to the stage now to perform the Oscar-nominated song Glory, which is from Selma.
03.59 Nick Allen reports from back stage:
 "More powerful stuff from Patricia Arquette back stage. She said: 'It's time for us, it's time tor women. Equal means equal. The highest percentage of children living in poverty are female headedhousehold.It'sincredible. We go round the world and talk about equal rights. But we don't have equal rights. When they wrote the Constitution they didn't intend it for us. So even though we feel we have equal rights in America there are huge issues under the surface.'"
03.57 Why was Joan Rivers, who appeared in dozens of films, snubbed in the In Memoriam section?
03.55 After Edward Snowden film CitizenFour wins, Neil Patrick Harris jokes: "Edward Snowden can't be here tonight for some treason."
03.53 Just poured champagne prosecco in my ear and tried to drink my earphone #oscarsanecdote

OscarsCitizenFour, Praxis Films
Here are the nominations for DOCUMENTARY FEATURE
CitizenFour, Praxis Films
Finding Vivian Maier, Ravine Pictures
The Salt of the Earth, Decia Films
Virunga, Grain Media
Last Days in Vietnam
03.50 Just joining us? Firstly, where have you been? And secondly, this is what you've missed, courtesy of Patrick Smith.
 "So far, so predictable. JK Simmons and Patricia Arquette were shoo-ins from the moment the nominations were announced last month. Arquette, a richly deserving winner for Boyhood, a film as much a meditation on motherhood as it is a portrait of a young boy growing up, provided the night’s first impassioned political speech, calling for equal pay for women. Elsewhere, Wes Anderson’s Grand Budapest Hotel, going into tonight with nine nominations, is faring well: three awards at this point. Birdman winning for Best Cinematography was always a likely outcome: spectacular to look at, the film is woven together so fastidiously it appears to unfold in one continuous take. It's the second consecutive Oscar for Emmanuel Lubezki, who won the same award for Gravity last year. Two wins for Gravity (for Best Sound Editing and Best Film Editing) are well deserved, too."-+66666666666666666666666666523+98
