I personally feel a bit disappointed with some of the winners. I wouldn't tell you particularly, but for those who had seen it, you know what I meant. Though, I'm still proud of ''Spotlight''. The film has become the front-runner for the Best Picture category. And Spotlight did it again! Tom McCarthy has finally outdone himself. George Miller's Masterpiece of the decade, ''Mad Max: Fury Road'' has become the most awarded movie last night by receiving of 6 trophies while ''The Revenant'' received 3 awards including Best Director and Best Actor for Leonardo DiCaprio, although the film had the most nominations for 12 categories.

Did you also notice that some of the nominees and winners are first-timers? Particularly, Brie Larson from my third best movie of the year, ''Room'' and the shocking extraordinary Alicia Vikander from Tom Hooper's ''The Danish Girl'' along with her co-star Eddie Redwayne who won Best Actor last year in Theory of Everything - who has been nominated with the same category this year. We've seen Alicia in her previous films. But I was also totally blown away by her performance in Ex Machina. The film received 2 nominations and won one for Best Visual Effects. I think she deserves an Oscar consideration as well for her work as Ava.

Todd Haynes' ''Carol'', Ridley Scott's ''The Martian'', Adam McKay's ''The Big Short'', Steven Spielberg's ''Bridge of Spies'', J.J. Abrams ''Star Wars: The Force Awakens'' and some other nominees, were also nominated for several categories. Some of these films didn't win at least one trophy despite of having several nominations.

One of the highlights of the night, I think, aside from Leo's moment was Lady Gaga's live performance. For those who missed it, well she was REMARKABLE!!!! With her great vocal and connection to the song will totally melt your heart... She gives another unforgettable performance this year for performing live at the Oscars. She was also nominated for Original Song for one of the nominated Documentary Films of the year, "The Hunting Ground"

I'd say, Chris Rock's way of hosting the show was just ''Ok''. I mean, I don't like it, but I don't hate it either. What do you guys think about the winners? Aside from Chris Rock jokes highlighting Hollywood controversies, do you think Oscars made the rightful decision for the winners?
